Great hike if you want something easier. Had some beautiful views

It’s hard to give it a real review because I didn’t make it very far. Maybe 6 of the total km... I just had an uneasy feeling so I turned around... I made it back to the clearing and little creek and encountered THREE large (very large) grizzly bears. It was just me and my dog. She was on leash and thankfully I didn’t startle them. It was very unnerving to be out numbered. One seemed interested in my dog and I but I just kept talking in a calm, yet slightly louder (not shouting) voice and told it it needed to go back up that hill. It listened and we were able to pass and they turned around after following us for a short while.

I would have enjoyed seeing more... it was a pretty easy yet muddy hike. Horses had been through earlier that day. The trailer was still there.

Beautiful views and great length and elevation. Nothing is marked so you have to rely on All Trails to start you off OK. However about 3/4 into the hike you have to use tracks that are not considered part of High Noon if you want to get the best views. It is bear country, saw a mom and two cubs and had to wait quite a while while the cubs got to the same side of the trail as the mom.

I hiked the unofficial trail up to the south ridge and then beyond to Volcano Ridge. This is a great hike with beautiful views. The trail is reasonably well marked. At about 2.5 k after entering the trees you cross a creek and the trail splits. Take the right hand fork and a few metres in look for flagging for a trail to the left and up thru pines.

On a muddy day after a morning rain and a wet couple of days before, we hiked this trail starting at the Information Centre and went clockwise. It's a relatively easy trail with only one short steep uphill section and the rest just rolls along. I would rate this as easy instead of the intermediate ranking it currently has. My only complaint of the trail is that there isn't much of a viewpoint on any part of it. Muddy conditions prevented us from exploring any of the other trials in this network but we will be back during drier conditions. There was only one other hiking group on the trail so we pretty much had it all to ourselves!

Short, easy hike that features some not too steep incline and rewarding "summit" which sported a large swath of wildflowers and great view of the valley below and mountains in the distance. We only hiked about half the trail, definitely a great payoff for how short the hike is.

we also added going to south volcano ridge and volcano ridge trail up to volcano ridge beautiful views signs and trails hard to follow at times

Would be a beautiful view in the fall with the aspens. Trail seemed to be built more for bikes and horses. Fairly muddy in areas, I would not advise going after rainy spell.

Great trail to do with kids. You could also just hike to the top of the hill (about 1.3km) just before the steep descent and head back a little early if need be. Nice mix of shade and sun.

It was a great hike for all ages. It was mostly dry already and the views are very good.

Very nice walk.
You will likely need to use the app to find the start of the trail.
Once you go through the gate, go left along the fence, and the trail presents itself.
It's a very nice walk with beautiful views, and it's pretty dry in the Spring while many trails are still riddled with ice, snow, and mud.
Two of the people in our party were wearing flip-flops and they made it through the hike just fine.

Great solid trail and some nice views.

Really enjoyed the trail, on a beautiful winter/spring day ☀. Probably could have used snowshoes, although not really required. Good amount of snow still covering all of the trail; but, we were able to avoid breaking through in the deep spots. Would probably be a very nice trail in the summer too.

Great for early season hikes. Can be wet in some areas. 2018 winter was great for snowshoeing

Good hike, very well marked trail.

Today was a great day for a hike. Easy to moderate at best. Good hike for beginners.

great trail to get back into shape

All trails needs to be updated.... the loop trail includes a trail that has been decommissioned.

This was a great trail to get out and do a quick hike with some beautiful scenery. You need to cross the highway from where you park and go up a dirt trail you will come to the fence. You can open the gate up.

Awesome horseback riding trail!

This hike was extremely muddy in most parts. It had quite a few people horseback riding, we were the only hikers. The scenery wasn't anything special. Once at the top it was cool to see, you could see Calgary off in the distance. It took us 2.5 hours to complete.

Great hike, spectacular view about 2/5 through atop a grassy hill. Peters out at the end when you reach a fence overlooking a valley. Careful not to get lost in the cow trails after the big hill.
