I hired a guide to bring me up to the summit of this amazing mountain. A large glacier awaits you at the top including amazing views of Lake Moraine, Mount Fay Glacier, Valley of Ten Peaks, Paradise Valley, Mount Lefroy and Mount Victoria. And because this is one of the highest peaks in the area the views are absolutely amazing as you can see everything!!!

Awesome walk along the creek.We ended up walking the creek instead of the ridge but still worth it ..Beautiful views!! Spectacular frozen waterfalls.....love it ..will go back for the ridge in summer for sure

It was a gorgeous hike. We did it on December 8th 2018
Breathtaking views of creek and frozen waterfalls were everywhere. Saw few people doing ice climbing. Little tricky to cross creek few times.
Must do in summer.

Completed December 4th. Spectacular views well worth the effort! Good Micro spikes are needed for the way down. Can’t wait to try it again in summer.

Completed on December 2nd. Definitely need micro-spikes! Beautiful hike with 360 degree views.

Awesome Trail done 6 days ago right before winter hit full force. Trail was easy to find and follow, it was a steep climb for a short amount of distance but well worth it for the views at the top of Abraham Lake and David Thompson highway.

Tough climb but beautiful views of the peaks and valleys. We did this on Nov 17, trail was easy to follow - microspikes and poles a must.

This was a great, yet hard hike. The inclines are very steep in some points (at the very end of the climb I actually had to use both hands and feet to get to the top). The views are so worth it though!

We did this on November 10, and it was amazing. The weather was absolutely gorgeous and there was very little snow. If there was more snow it would definitely not have been as enjoyable.

beautiful hike! parked at the closed parking area and walked across the creek, theres a clearly marked trail. its pretty steep the first few kms as you get up to the ridge, a few areas of exposure but mostly in the trees. we went up novemeber 11th and there was snow but some areas were still free of snow, alot more snow on the ridge, spikes are a must!!

Did this in early October. Super tough hike, up mountain right away. Every blood, sweat, and tear was worth the views. Not a kid friendly hike! Make sure you have good hiking gear for this one, poles are nice for coming back down as the scramble is slippery.

Parked at closed day use area. Walked north across the river and the trail is very visible. Steep trail be prepared for some leg burn. Completed Nov 5,18 and I didn’t use spikes or poles. Was a little slippery so spikes would be beneficial. Took me 3 hours, very Little climbing rock. Just near the summit you have a tiny scramble. Only got the view for 10 minutes or so because the clouds and snow blew in. Good workout. I will have to do it again on a clear day because I did not get the full view at the summit.

Hiked it NOV. 3rd.. we parked at the day park area which was closed. Followed the trail north along hwy40, that lead into the bushes. trail was steep and Icey going up. Spikes and poles were key, once you get to the ridge you can explore right and left, left will take u up to the summit, pretty easy going from there. 1 foot of snow, but well tracked down. Awesome 360 views of the valley and all peaks around. Absolutely gorgeous.
Decent was icey and muddy, bush waked the whole way down to stay off the muddy trail . Was an awesome hike. We took our time with lots of breaks to take nature in. Up and down in 4 hours.

Great day hike! Amazing views at the top at Aylmer Lookout! 6 hr round trip, trail was in good condition (October 27th).

Oct 21 - Although the weather felt like the first week of September, the trails were 95% dry. This is a STEEP hike. Leg burner for sure. I wouldn’t recommend it for beginners but it is a doable day hike. We took a right (left takes you to the lake) at about the 4km mark up to the ridge. The fork is poorly marked. Getting up to the ridge is all loose shale or a scramble up big rocks. The 360 views are worth it. Next summer I’d like to hike up and camp over night at the lake.

Did this hike October 17th. Beautiful and not too difficult. Crampons would be helpful towards the top. Lost my prescription ray bans on the way down however! If anyone decides to go and finds them please contact me and I will be so thankful! 403 975 3514

I was here yesterday before sunrise. Unfortunately the bridge was blocked off with closure signs. I thought it was opened up again for winter, I guess they have more work to do? the trail head was closed at the time I went.

Great trail, minor scramble at the top. But windy and chilly. Amazing views.

Trail closure extended for the winter season 2018/19. The early snowfall and smoke this year delayed the new trail alignment so it will be completed in spring 2019 then reopened!

Excellent hike. A steady grind from the start with some flatter sections throughout. Expect conditions to change quickly at or near the top. Bring some crampons too if attempting in late fall. Great views from the top! That is the half you need to know...and knowing is half the battle. GI Joe!!

Was beautiful! I’m not an experienced hiker (nor do I work out) but I managed to make it to the top have lunch and back down in 4hours. Pretty steep and loose rock. Friend went up in tennis shoes and he didn’t struggle.

Was still closed yesterday. Sign at trail head said closed until early October for trail maintenance. A local said next week for scheduled reopening... not 100% sure if they are planning to reopen on schedule? Anybody know?

Is this trail still closed? We are planning to go October 10. Would it be open by then?

Have done this hike about four times due to easy access and a well marked trail. Always bustling with tourists, so if you want a good seat at the summit either go very early or pop over to miners peak instead.

Sept 20- still closed :(

Folks, identity politics aside this is a fair weather smut! Today she was a wet and muddy smut. The views are amazing and hike is not too bad. We got to base of the scramble before the snow and sleet turned us around. The Pass of Caradhras was blocked; so we had no choice but to face the long dark of Moria.

Steep and beautiful hike. The views were amazing especially with the leaves changing colours.

Steep but very manageable hike. You can do this hike easily in an afternoon. There are great views along the way and the lake at the end is beautiful. We did this hike in late September and didn’t see another soul, but did follow some cougar tracks for about half the hike, so make sure you bring your bear spray just in case.

Date : 8th of September
Time: 8.30am at the Moraine gate, gate opens 8.45am.
Group of 5 amateur hikers

At this time of the year I would recommend using poles, helmet and cleats. We did it without any of those and it was rather risky. My boyfriend and his team did it earlier without any equipment around July and it was much easier.

Bring dry socks and good company!

This is an awesome hike with beautiful views. It's a hell of a leg burning workout. The trails are not hard to follow, you just need to be careful as it is very steep.....have fun hikers.....
