An absolute must on the hiker's to do list. Highly recommend to spend extra nights at Berg lake campsite to explore extension hikes, especially the stunning snowbird pass trail alongside the Robson glacier and Alpine Meadows.

Sick hike with a bit of everything. Lots of crisscrossing with other paths at start so be sure not to turn down Ribbon Creek or old mine roads, though signage is pretty good. First summit is Olympic Ridge which is just above Nakiska T-Bar, then ridgewalk goes for a quite a while and features a LOTR-esque rock garden. Mt. Allan Summit features stunning views of Mount Lougheed, 3 Sisters, Bow Valley to west and Kananaskis Valley to east. No tricky scrambles. Did this as an out-and-back from the Kananaskis side but would like to complete entire ridge walk from Dead Man's Flats next. Time: 7 3/4 hours.

Loved the hike! The views were amazing and I got great shots of the sign. It is dry and open trail but if done in the early morning it's not bad at all. Definitely bring apply sunscreen and wear hats and sunglasses. We didn't go all the way up behind the hike, but it isn't much further up the trail (maybe like another mile) if you decide to go further up.

Fairly challenging hike...there was about 4 inches of snow on the ground which made the trek even more difficult. View from the top is stunning.

Took me and a little dog 2 hrs to the top and then 1.5 hrs back to the bottom. Only saw one stream on the way up so bring your own water for the dog. Lots of roots for the second half of the hike so bring good footwear. Not too much room at the top to enjoy the view as compared to say, Quarry Rock. No bugs right now but was windy and chilly.

Awesome trail. Even on a cloudy day the trail was great. Took me two hours to go up, without any stop and three hours to go down, taking my time picking up mushrooms and berries. A bit hard to find the Howe Sound Crest trail at first but once you've find it, it's very easy to find your way to the top. (Tip: Follow Howe sound EAST trail). I highly recommend this one !

Absolutely breathtaking. Easy walking, friendly people, amazing views and amazing weather.

The first part up the hill is meh. The viewpoints are also overrated. The walk on the beach is amazing. Also I went in the afternoon and the reflections of the canyons in the receding water were mesmerizing.

Took this route to drop a water cache at Baldy for a hike of the entire San Antonio Ridge. We were there before the lift was open, so we hiked all the way up. This is a nice hike and it's quite convenient to have the restaurant there for water and food. Be sure to have a lot of water and start early to avoid the heat and dehydration. Fairly steep and direct, be sure to have good shoes, it gets a little loose and sandy in a few spots.

Closed for another month :(

This ones on my top five under six. Beautiful quick incline all the way up, trails are quite clear; lots of foot traffic. If you make it to the flag at the peak the views are spectacular.
On a side note if you head right at the top you can also do Miners Peak so you can check off two amazing hikes in one day trip. Happy hiking.

Expérience incroyable! Quel ascension! Un vrai bonheur! La vue est incroyable!!

I love this hike and was hoping to squeeze it in on sept 8th. Can anyone confirm if it’s open? I was there two weeks ago and the sign said it would be open by aug 28th.

What a beautiful view at the top! I wouldn’t rate this trail as moderate...it was pretty easy ! We went around 9 AM and there was a lot of people down by the lake and on the way to the Lake Agnes’ Tea House. The trails to Little Beehive and Big Beehive were less traficked and it was perfect ! Have a nice hike!

This turned out to be an adventure. I guess I underestimated the hike and decided to go after work at 6:30 PM. Did half the hike (the part on the beach) in near darkness. It can be a little intimidating hiking in the dark in high tide when you don't know how much further you have to go and you are not sure what lays ahead. My advice to all, start at least one hour before the sun sets if you want to avoid the dark. Still a very scenic and a gorgeous trail. One big disadvantage of hiking at night on the beach here is that there were a lot of mosquitoes (on a particular section).

Still closed on Sept. 6.

Hiked to dolomite pass above Helen Lake.

Nice hike. 2 mile uphill to start, then easy fast long terrain to Lake Helen. Easy up to the pass and Cirque Peak above. Went up a little way but didn’t attempt to summit because of snow and the fact we really didn’t know the route

Thinking about hiking it Sept 8th, 2018. Can someone confirm the trail is still closed?

Fantastic well marked hike. Gain to the ridge is the most demanding and steepest. 2hours from parking lot to reach beginning of centennial Ridge. From there to the rock garden it’s a beautiful hike with views to the rock garden, stopped just shy to the ascent to mount Allan.

Amazing hike! Awesome views\ from the top, the scenery was just breathtaking, I wished I'd taken more photos. I am glad we packed 3-4L of fluid each plus some for the dogs as well as snacks (and some waiting for us in the car). It took us 4.5 hours out and back.
It is dog friendly, there are some scrambles so your pup has to be agile enough to do it on its own or you need to be able to pick him up or help them. It was really windy at the top, with marmots, prairies dogs and chipmunks teasing my pooches all the time.
I don't know much about bird watching, I was still fascinated with the variety of species that we saw.
I always pack gloves, a hat, sunglasses and a wind buff, when doing hard or higher altitudes hikes, thinking I won't need them, but I always do.
It is a hard hike and it can be tempting to turn around after 3k or 4k in, and be content with the view, as it is already a pretty nice vista. If you have the right gears, planned accordingly and started early enough, you will be rewarded with exceptional views from Mount Allan Summit.

Such a fun trail and a real butt-kicker! I took the $20 round trip tram ride up to Top of the Notch to skip the exposed fire road in the beginning. The half mile after the restaurant is steep no matter if you take the Turkey Shoot or the more obvious trail to the center-right. Devil's backbone is semi-narrow, but not as nerve racking as people make it out to be. Stay to the LEFT to avoid going up to Mt. Harwood. The real challenge is the 0.6 miles to the summit. A TALL, steep incline of switchbacks taunts you as you make your way up. Stay to the right to avoid a pure shale incline. The summit is incredibly rewarding, best views I've seen so far on a mountain top. Round trip of approx 7 miles took about 5 hours with rest stops. The tram ride down was more enjoyable than up as you can imagine after a tough hike. ENJOY!

Beautiful, weather can (and did) change quickly though

Most beautiful hike we’ve done. Robson Helimagic dropped us off at Berg Lake cause I wanted to hike with my pup (no dogs allowed over night and didn’t want to squeeze the hike into one day). Gorgeous, varying views all along, just absolutely spectacular. A must do.

Wow the views were amazing! Not too hard of a hike. We were a little confused at first where the trail started but once we figured it out it was great!

I got literally hooked into hiking right after I did Ha Ling last June. It was an amazing experience and spectacular view from the summit. Can't wait to do it again as soon as the new trail open

Easy to follow trail, not too steep. Great wildflowers and lots of marmots. Can be a lot if people on the trail. First half of the hike is in the forest (with a number of good view points across the valley), second half of the trail is wide open.

This was a great little hike not super hard but it is a great way to start the day and get your heart rate up. Due to other reviews we were happy to find the start of the trail at the two large rocks to the right of the parking lot. The trail is marked by orange ribbons along the way which was nice. This app shows fellow hikers and there locations on a decently populated trail. The falls are beautiful.

Great hike. Very windy on the ridge and it was a cold one. Be ready.

A must do. Not a beginners hike. Beautiful.

I absolutely love Torrey Pines. The scenery is gorgeous, and the beach at the end of this trail is so refreshing.
