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.
Chantal F. on Canyon Creek Ice Cave Trail
Such an amazing hike, especially knowing your destination is an unreal cave with outstanding views. Don't forget your head lamp
This was the first hike I ever did two years ago, and we went again yesterday (April. 22) great for beginners or people who don't have a lot of time in the day. Very close drive from our home city of Calgary and easy to find as it is one turn before Nakiska ski hill. The falls are beautiful and relaxing! Would definitely do this hike again!
Steven U. on Bear's Hump
Did this hike with my Father and son. Great hike. Still snow on the trail.
Chantal F. on Wasootch Ridge Trail
Great hike! Lots of snow on April, so wear appropriate gear. Amazing views!
The trip out was great, snow was packed down nicely. The trip back was much warmer so we sunk down quite often in the snow. Well worth the trip. The waterfall was beautiful. There is a very easy path to follow to Lillian Lake but no trail to get to Galatea Lower Lake.
Really enjoyed this hike, steep incline at the beginning got the blood pumping (in not in tip top shape) and the views at the lake are fantastic. Did the hike twice and successfully fished for cutthroat trout each time. Grizzly activity on the west ridge above the lake.
