The Begining of the trail is really easy, it gets more difficult when you reach the top of the mountain. Totally worth the effort! The view was incredible !

My wife and i really enjoy this hike. you can make it more strenuous by going as far as you can. It does get really windy in the open areas but the views are awesome!

Nov.25th - steep for the first 20-25 minutes but easy once you hit the lake! Waterfalls are beautiful.

Packed snow for most of it, no snow in places on the ridge. Spikes are good to have. Steady climb but really no exposed areas so is great this time of year. Route to ridge climb is really well marked and signed. Views from ridge line are truly spectacular! Trail closes December 1 for wildlife management.

Just wanted to do an update on the cave. If you go to the end of the cave there is a secret passageway that’s low to the ground. And this is where the adventure begins! Super cool if your not claustrophobic! Lots of crawling around finding more tunnels to go in. It eventually ends because the space gets too small to crawl through. Love this cave!:)

The trail is in good condition, only covered with thin layer of snow except Wind Ridge Trail has deeper snow
Great hike and definitely go back again in summer time

Great view at the Wind Ridge Trail. Worth extra effort to go up. Crampon is a must going there

The water/ice sculpture created by the freezing waterfall makes this moderately easy hike a 5/5. Wearing micro spikes proved helpful as the start of the hike as well as the short path down to the waterfall were steep.

04/11 Would recommend as an easy winter hike with a very special waterfalls treat at the end. Required spikes for majority of the hike thanks to an icy trail. The climb down to the falls is very sketchy so recommend spikes and poles.

Great trail with beautiful views. Spikes strongly recommended this time of year. Snowshoes are helpful near the end of the trail as it becomes less packed.

Amazing hike/climb. Requires scrambling near top of Mt. Baldy and along ridge between Mt. Baldy and Mt. Baldy South. Icy up there now so the scrambling is a bit trickier and requires experience. The bowl/valley between the peaks is starting to get some snow so be avalanche aware if going down or up that way. Wonderful views along the ridges and top, and don’t forget to write your name on the notepad sealed in a black container at the top of Mt. Baldy!!

Did this at the beginning of November, some snow but it was doable. The views were great once you got to the ridge and the elevation wasn’t too bad although we couldn’t continue to the finish due to the crazy strong wind. Overall great hike with great views.

Really great views once you get past the treeline. We did this hike end of July and it took us 6 hrs with a 30-40 min lunch stop at the top. Beware of the false summit. The first half hour is flat and the trail is well marked. It’s pretty steep all the way up with little breaks to recover. Would rate this hike on the harder side because it is long!

Oct. 31, 2018 - Very icy most of the way up, top is dry. Sketchy going down on the ice, but totally worth it. Great track through a mature cedar forest with huge payoff at the top, one of my faves. Very hard to find the mostly unmarked trailhead, use NAV for sure. Long dirt road with logging trucks will keep you on your toes.

Windy. So very very windy, which makes sense with the name. Bring layers, last 200 m is cold and gaiters are key as snow is knee deep up top. Pretty hike though!

Counterclockwise loop. Caution crossing stream, logs were frosted over and slippery. Elevation gain in a short amount of time but amazing views and simply a beautiful hike, even with the huffing and puffing. Would not want to do ascent with fresh snow fall. Descent clear of snow, nice and sunny. Ignore last 2km. Forgot to stop my app.

Just did today and it was gorgeous, 98% dry paths. Nice view at the top

Great hike up to the top very windy glad I had my poles to come down.

Currently has very icy sections. Highly recommend the use of some ice-trekkers or yaktraxx. It was very windy on top.

Very windy at the top !!

Crazy Wind! Hence the name haha Windtower! Beautiful views the whole way up. It’s fine to do in the winter - just prepare ahead of time, and bring your spikes if going to the peak!

Really nice trail! Amazing views. No snow except near the summit. A little bit slipery but definitely worth it!

Oct 19/18 - microspikes needed especially for the first part of the trail up to Elbow Lake. A beautiful easy hike from the lake to Edworthy Falls. The trail is well worn down along the way.

Hiked the trail today. Amazing weather for late October. Very little snow or mud. We brought our Scottie and he easily made it right to the top Ridge.

We did the full hike in under 6 hours with no gear. Just hiking shoes and lots of water. If you haven’t been here before these are some of the best views in Kananaskis.

This trail was just what we needed. Great views. The trail is in great condition, some cool more technical parts at the top. Bring your cleats and good energy for an amazing hike.

Hiked Oct 21, 2018. Trail a mix of hardened snow, ice, dirt and mud. Crampons very useful for beginning ascent and absolutely required for going down to falls. Some areas challenging due to broken trail of hard snow and deep tracks. Elbow Lake is totally frozen. Folks walking on. Nice leisurely hike after initial ascent.

Easy trail close to the city. Great views along the way.

Amazing hike, beautiful scenery. Lots of wildlife footprints which made it even more lovely.

Amazing Hike! the first 3 km is a little icy so if you have spikes bring them, otherwise you can still make it through it's just a little slippery. After that, the trail is pretty dry with some mud spots. The views were stunning and our dogs had no problem doing the hike. We stopped at the bottom of the bouldering rocks because the trail to go around and up was a little too slippy and steep for us to be comfortable getting back down from. We will be back when the snow disappears! 2h up, 1h15min down.

Great hike for single hikers visiting town. Some of this hike was on a golf course, a little in the woods and some along a trail in front of houses with a great view of the city.
