I’d classify it as easy. Pretty forest views.

Started on Eagle and joined up with Deer Ridge. At that point the hike got steep very quickly. A lot of flat but worth the climb , Gorgeous views at the top, lots of wild flowers, and lots of forest walking.

A friend and I did most of this trail (I believe) in combination with a couple of others in the vicinity. We didn’t see another soul until about 2, or more, hours into it. It was so peaceful. There was about a zillion mosquitoes on one part of the trail near the lake so bug spray is a must. My poor dog got eaten alive. We ended up hiking about 16 or so km and there are some decent ups and downs so the legs were feeling it by the end of the day. All in all we liked these trails and I would definitely go again.

Hiked 6/27/18 at 7am. Only person out there until 930. Flat and little marshy going out, with some ups and downs. Only real vertical is near the end. Took 2 hours out, 1.5 hours back (9 Miles). Some bugs but not crazy. Overall.... beautiful, peaceful, great views and seclusion. Saw moose, bear, dog, horse, and possible bear tracks, but no real wildlife in person except birds. Cougar warnings at trailhead but no evidence. This was a great hike; would love to hike this area again. God is good.

Great hike with great view at the end! Came back via deer ridge trail with awesome view all the way.

Pine woods loop has a sign that says it is closed.

The trail was nice and not too much debris, just in certain areas but it was easy to bypass. The view near the end was beautiful and there wasn’t too many people on a Saturday, when we went. Saw lots of Moose droppings, so they are in the area. Thought we heard one as well, but didn’t see any.

Lots of debris on trail. Very pleasant hike. Tried Deer Ridge but still lots of snow & ice

Beautiful spot in the fall, fun for kids to wander around lots of wildlife and scenery. We have gone to the picnic spots and roasted weenies

I followed Eagle Hill, went up the very steep hill around the loop and followed the well traveled trail back. Somehow ended up on the highway so next time, stay left.

Not a well groomed trail most of the way. We got to around sign #3 of the interpretive trail and went left where we should have gone right. Ended up doing a loop that was 3km instead of the 2ish km we had expected. Lots of nice wild flowers and valley views. A little buggy. Nice picnic area after at the pond.

Pretty decent hike! We got seriously messed up at the start and wandered around on cowpaths for a while. We should have stayed low instead of going up to the lookout bench. After that is fine. Bit of a grind up a cut line but the top was very nice. Walking through pines down to edge of Sibbald Flats. Took our old dog.

Nice day for this hike. Early morning venture with no one else on the trail. The trail was mostly dry and in very good shape. There is alot of tall grass in the lower areas, making some sections of the trail slightly difficult to locate. I did see a moose and later a white tail deer just off the trail, otherwise very quite (bonus for early trailhead start). I added Deer Ridge on my way back to the parking area, which was in great shape today.

What an absolutely fantastic hike. The weather was perfect, and aside from 2 other couples, we were the only people we saw for almost 4 hours. The hike was moderate, but offered many wonderful views and a vast assortment of wildlife, game trails and tracks, and flowers and foliage. Although the signage is plentiful at the head of the trail, you have to keep your wits about you when venturing to the Deer Ridge 'summit', as we were turned around a few times, turning the 6 km hike into a 7.5 km hike lol. All in all we honestly couldn't have asked for a better place to find some peace outside of the busy city. We'll be back for sure.

Lots of flies out when we were here.
Really nice and easy trail.
I would recommend wearing long pants.
Lots of tall grass and narrow paths.
We tried to attach deer ridge on this day but an angry grouse wouldn't let us pass.

Decided to do an easy hike for the day. We took a couple wrong turns at the beginning but ended up were we wanted to be at the Deer Ridge summit. Very easy hike with a decently maintained trail. Definitely some fallen trees on the trail at times but always easy to get around.
The loop we did was around 8 km total, under 300m elevation gain and it took under 3 hours with all our stops for viewpoints and caching.
It was a good first hike of the year and it's only an hour from Calgary. Now it's time for the fun ones!

Fun! A very nice view point considering your only on a foothill.

A relatively well paced hike with moderate ups and downs. The top of Eagle Hill is a great view and certainly worth the trip. Nice for early spring hike as the snow was mostly gone and some of mud but overall fine conditions.

Still a bit of snow/ice on the incline, but was manageable with shoe spikes. Excited to do this hike again when the ice on the pond melts and the plants bloom!
