This is listed in my trail book as moderate. I feel it was hard. I wanted to die on this hill (haha), it's STEEP! Poles help make me not hate life so much.
The view is unbeatable; And of course, it gives you that feeling of accomplishment... and you feel no guilt about the Canmore pizza that you go for afterwards. Bonus!
We hiked the fescue loop today. Saw quite a few mule deer, bugs and birds. Bathroom stops along the way which was nice. A pretty easy 5km through the Alberta grasslands (although you're basically walking through a cut path surrounded constantly by cow poop). A few little steep parts but nothing too challenging.
