I did this one late in my hiking career, and expected a pretty boring, easy, and crowded hike.
Mostly correct. There are however still a few views that are alright and the ponds are actually pretty cool.
The green and reflection I guess, but still so many people layin all around them.
Once is enough

Beautiful winter hike. No one else around.

Just do it!!

Okay little hike but more vertical than we were hoping for on an “easy” walk. The loop isn’t fully open so it’s just an in and out right now. Crampons or poles definitely needed with the hard packed and slippery snow. Super close to Canmore which was convenient. All dogs were leashes too which was nice.

Amazing hike, weather is getting warmer. Just be a little careful now , ensure proper gear is on hand.

Easy hike but definitely need crampons in the spring. If you are lucky enough to go before the summer when the tourists hit you may have the place completely to yourself! Other than the howling wolves it was majestic :)

Easy hike for beginners!!

Nice and easy. It is worth the view.

Trail is in good shape. Some people in boots have made the first bit rough but clears up soon. Beautiful views & no one else on the trail!

Definitely make sure to bring headlamps for each member of your group.

We went counter-clockwise up Ranger Summit then down along Strange Brew/Boundary Ridge. Despite recent heavy snow, the trail was icy in several spots and the snow was thin in tree-covered areas. Lots of roots and rocks that took away from an otherwise enjoyable trek. Signage wasn't great to get onto the trail but very clear once you're there. Less traffic than the north side trails in this area but still fairly popular.

Nice and easy trail. Very icy/snowy in winter, pikes cleats recommended. Lower trail closed during winter due to ice and ice falls but accessible with care. That's probably the better part of the trail, don't skip it if you have the right equipment.

Nice easy trail for a couple of older ones

lots of snow during the second half but not an issue. take crampons just in case.

My favourite! Short and so sweet!

Awesome hike with great reward at the end. I believe this is also called inges mine??? Very hot to do in summer. No shade on trail.

Super easy trail with beautiful ponds and some wall climbing.

Love this hike. Stunning views from the top with a picnic table to have your lunch. You can also sign a visitors book. Has some steep parts but overall a great hike.

Great for snowshoeing, beautiful

This is a great warm up hike to shake things out for the season. I’ve done it a few times and have enjoyed it every time.

Great variety and beautiful winter terrain

First time out, windy. The trail was in good shape, wasn’t prepared totally. Needed spikes on the footwear. We try next time to try to make it to Lillian Lakes and the waterfall

Can't beat a winter hike in a frozen slot canyon, a fun morning out

Once you get to the trail, it's great. The long boring walk along the service road to get there was unbearable. The cave is a sight to behold. The light scramble to get up there was fun, not very technical, very accessible.

too icy to walk even with poles and crampons on November 29th so we picked a more sun exposed trail

Hiked it in the beginning of November. There is a bunch of snow, but it was well accessible in without any special equipment though. Frozen lakes and waterfall were amazing. A quite short easy/ moderate hike (if you choose the more difficult path).

One of my favorite trails near Calgary. Beautiful views, nice stops to have breaks. I would rate it as a moderate. Almost all trail it's easy, once you past the forest and enter to the praire, the uphill starts. After that gets kind of steep, but nothing crazy. It gets really windy on top.

The best hike I’ve ever done. Even better, it ends with food, and delicious food at that! I’d do this trail a hundred times over.
