Getting greasy out there, but man, do those warm winds feel great.

Great day for a leisurely hike. Mainly sunny, a bit windy and the trail was in awesome shape with compact snow. Views were fabulous in all directions. Although 4 of the 6 in our group wore spikes it wasn’t totally necessary, but always nice for better traction particularly on the decent. I would suspect with the weather warming up over the next week, icy sections will appear. Great trail selection if you only have a couple of hours to spare and you are in the Banff area.

Jan 19/2020. Trail is completely packed down, snowshoes stayed strapped to the backpack the whole time. The area is quite busy considering it is less than an hour from the city and an off-leash area, which are nice. But don’t expect any fantastic views. Most of the trail is in the trees.

01/19 Warm winds have blown in and light layers are the call of today. Finally. Lots of dog walkers out today, and why not, it’s a good day to be out.

Not as cold as the past few days. Trails are packed down and quiet. That’ll probably change tomorrow when the Chinook winds roll in.

Spikes or yaktrax help on this trail. Beautiful views from the top

Did this in the summer, but the universe blessed us with a few cms of snow in July! Beautiful hike. We ended up hiking up the ridge past the amphitheatre which was incredible and so much fun. My 6lb dog joined us on this hike and he had an absolute blast!!! Prepare for a LONG day!

01/11 - Chinook is over and the wind chill is high. Doggo was not impressed. Bundle up

Very disappointed in the hike. There are others I would put above this if you constrained for time in banff. Upset we wasted time trusting the reviews and hiking it. This is basically a paved path with a little chat covering it and it looks over the town. Not impressed. Would rate as easy.

Easy snowshoe with gentle hills through forested areas on very well marked trail. The snow on the trail was packed so could have walked.

Fairly unused trail. Buffalo were along the trail path. Pretty cool to see the herd run across the trail.

Well I had great intentions of completing this loop, however I wasn’t totally prepared for the depth of drifted snow in the clear cut logging area on the Snakes & Ladder trail section. Having been on a half dozen trails in the West Bragg Creek area over the last 2 weeks, I left thinking I only needed my gaiters and spikes as the trails have been quite compacted between bikers and snowshoers. Unfortunately there was no evidence of anybody attempting this section of the Snakes & Ladders Trail. I have a waypoint on my recording that identifies the winter turnaround point for bikers and hikers without snowshoes which is the lowest elevation point on the loop at approximately the 5.8 km mark at the creek crossing. I did attempt the ascent from here into the clear cut but the snow was thigh and waist deep. After about 700 metres, with my progress being so slow as well being so late in the day, I decided I best turnaround and head back up to the Ranger Summit trail which was about 3.2 km away with @ 225m of elevation gain. Even though I didn’t complete, I managed to get in more elevation gain but about 3 km less in overall distance. Next time I will make sure I strap the snowshoes to my daypack:) If you attempt with snowshoes, make sure you have the All trails route or a GPS device because there is no visible evidence of the trail through the clear cut to the tree line. Also I have no idea what the trail conditions would be like on Ridgeback, Tom Snow or the Mountain Road trails back to the West Bragg Creek parking lot.

Hiked on January 6,2020: Trail was icy in places at the start next to water. Once you got into the trees it warmed up significantly and became less icy. The trail was hard packed the whole way. Incline was only difficult the last two km to viewpoint otherwise fairly gradual incline. Great hike would definitely recommend!

We had a unusual warm January hike! Very quiet (we started at 10 am ish), took our time and got back to the car at around 2:15. Went off the trail to look at the waterfall and play around in the canyon. Beautiful heavy snow and some sun at the end! More people were at the end as it is a popular tourist site, but only passed maybe three groups of people.

Completed this walk in winter. Good for all ages. Snow can be packed in areas. Views are lovely!

A great start to our x-c ski season. Conditions were quite good considering the warmer temperatures and the trail grooming was excellent. Nice rolling terrain with moderate hills. Hitting the trail before 10 a.m. meant it wasn't too busy.

This trail runs through Battery Creek Ravine re-named by the Town of Devon as the Bob McDonald Nature Park. It is the only natural area that is not intensively used in Devon and is meant to be kept natural with nature protection a priority. Dogs must be on leash in this park as in other areas of Devon. Users please help protect this natural area by mentioning to other users who may not be aware to leash dogs and hike only maintained trails. The Town of Devon has signs throughout the town stating "Environmental Responsibility is Everyone's Business. Use Maintained Trails only."

Great day on the trail, recommend snowshoes in areas as it gets quite deep. Very nice all-around.

Great experience. it was a technically easy hike, requiring only proper footwear, although I strongly recommend poles. The path/road into the bush was very icy, as it's next to the lake, but once inside the tree cover the trails were great. The trails were in very good shape. The only technical area was nearing the summit, as the trail was very steep and covered with snow, but manageable. There were a few freshly fallen trees along the path, but it appeared to be safe to cross. The parking lot was full, but we didn't encounter many people on the trail. There were a couple of groups with dogs, and that didn't seem to be an issue. The weather conditions ranged from extremely windy with snow, to calm and sunny - prepare for everything on this hike. We stayed on the east side and went to the summit and then returned on the same trail (out-and-back as opposed to doing the loop). it took us, two healthy middle-aged athletes, exactly 4 hours to cover 12km including frequent stops for pictures. The views were great once the weather cleared, but with the weather it was close to whiteout conditions. we happened to get very lucky, as on the way up, including the summit, we couldn't see anything, but just as we started back down the weather cleared, revealing a great view. I would happily do this one again - enjoy! (picture included)

After 3 days of the flu this was a nice easy loop to get back into the winter hiking. The trail was very well compacted and there was absolutely no need for snowshoes just spikes. Descending from Taipiti ridge, some of the switchbacks were quite rutted and icy from the fat tire bikes which looks like it would be an absolute blast! No problem though, the shoulders are well compacted from the snowshoers. Although the parking lot was quite full, traffic was very light on the trail with only 3 riders on the Boundary Ridge North section and 2 snowshoers on the Range Summit Trail South. With the skies relatively clear and the sun out, Moose Mountain and the Elbow Valley stood out very nicely.
