There are two parking lots. We started from lowering. The upper lot is smaller. Takes about a 1/3 if a mile off the trip. The first climb is very steep. Rest of the trail is a steady climb. Views if Banff and valley are beautiful.

Totally doable climb. My four year old son completed it with us without needing to slow down or stop. The views going up are as good as the view from the top. Go early and it’s not too busy. We were able to park at trail head and managed to skip out on the first 500m ascent fro. Lower parking lot.

This place is magical. Such an amazing way to spend about 3 hours total. Leisurely hike.

Cute little trail. Not too difficult if you’re looking for the easier walks. Really good views of Banff & the bow river from up top. Took about 30-45 minutes all up.

Enjoyed the walk. We were able to walk from our accommodation which was easy on the road. A few bits of the track got my heart rate up! Amazing views with spots to stop on the way up.

Nice trail. Short but definitely steep in areas. Saw tons of Caribou right by the trail which was great. Great view at the top and throughout.

Beautiful views all the way to the top!!

Good path with easy access and low difficulty. The negative is that he hears the noise of cars in the city.

Overall great trail! Beautiful views all the way up. We could walk from the place we were staying in Banff which was a bonus

Great little hike! Amazing views at the top on both sides of the mountain. For those of you traveling with babies, we did it with a 2 month old and it took about an hour and the baby did great.

Nice views of Banff!

loved it! easy and quick hike overseeing the whole town.

Easy access, not difficult, and beautiful scenery. We drove all day to get to town and took our dogs out for a nice little 2.7miles! Loved it!

Nice quick hike very close to the town of Banff and all of the hotels. If you can snag a spot in the smaller upper lot saves you a good little incline from the lower lot. From the lower lot it's 1.4 miles to the summit with the steepest parts really right after the lot and at the beginning of the trailhead. Nothing too bad at all for people who are in shape, but if you are out of shape you will need to go slow. Lots of views of Banff, the Bow River, the Banff Springs hotel, the golf course, the Hoo Doos, etc. as you climb. If you stop at the first view point on the back side of the mountain and look to the left on the tall rock wall you can often see rock climbers scaling the massive wall. The top is usually fairly crowded, but lots of room to find a spot on the rocks and enjoy the views.

Had a great hike to the top yesterday. Amazing views from the top. Think they are installing restrooms at the base, but none there yet.

Nice trail, clearly marked, good for a family. 2 places to park. Enjoy!

Effort to reward ratio is great. Views from the top are amazing. Very quick and easy. 30ish minutes to get up.

Short easy hike with wide path and good views, but Sulfur Mt. is much better in my opinion.

would rate as easy, doable for people of all fitness levels, view to enjoy ratio is very high so definitely worth doing. would also recommend that before you take the first right hand turn on the way down (just after the last railing showing views of the golf course below), don't take the right turn but keep walking straight out past a rocky outcrop to the cliff facing rundle for a lovely view of the face of rundle with the river below. you can then return back to the trail the way you came.
