    It's a wonderful trail to give you a shock of how Alberta nature and Ricky mountain look amazing.

    On September 10, 2016, six of us headed off from Calgary, then Canmore, turned south to route 742, then went uphill along Spray Lake (30 km long) to the end of the Lake. Then we found the trailhead on the foothill. An offline trail map will lock down the trailhead without any issue.

    The trail wanders from the inland forest at the east side of the so-called "Tent Ridge HORSESHOE" (so it's a loop), then we climbed up the ridge where we found a weather observation tower. Since the view is God-damned awesome, so quite a few shots were taken along with some pretty blondes :). After 15 minutes lunch, we resumed, heading to the west side of the ridge, where is even more dangerous to climb up to. Once again, the view is breathtaking at the both sides (very steep) and the rocks are loose ( so be prepared for dangers).

    Finally we headed downhill and joined a group of three girls who met a black bear at left and 3 grizzly bears at far right. We had to go off-trail to avoid encountering those 3 grizzly bears, into the forest. Eventually we managed to cut through into a nearly-dry creek and went south upwards, then finally found the trail back to the parking spot.

    It's been 8.5 hours on 16.5 km trail/off trails. The best trail / exploration experience in Kananaskis country. We love it.

    If not encountering the Bears, we could make the trail in 5 hours though.

    Definitely deserve a revisit.
