Not sure why someone marked this hard. It’s a lengthy hike in, but certainly not hard. The hike up Dyson is fun and mostly open field so not technical. There’s quite a large cairn at the top but not much for views as it’s heavily treed. Descend down to the first peak and there’s a nice spot to sit in the sun with a fire ring.

Good easy and gentle trail in a dry day. Would not recommend if rainy due to mud. We ran across LOTS of cattle and some horses as well.

Hiked up Foran Grade/Windy point and back Death valley in late July. Absolutely gorgeous views and very fragrant wild flowers (so bring your allergy meds) and if its a clear day you can spot Calgary from on top of the ridge. The trails get pretty muddy because of the horses and we did loose our way a bit in the meadows but over all fantastic hike!

The trailhead is across Sheep River from where you park. You cannot get to it without a boat.

So. Many. Horses. Avoid when muddy because the horses have made the ruts in the trail relentless. Lots of trails that horses aren't supposed to be on, but they are.

I'd say this is more of an easy trail than moderate. My 4 year old walked the whole way. Lots of people on horses and I wouldnt recommend coming after rain. Huge muddy sections that you have to try and get around, but it was a beautiful walk thru the hills. We parked at the info centre and walked clockwise around, very gradual incline and descent down the other side. I would recommend going along the ridge tho if you are hoping for some views.

We did this hike on June 17th. This isn’t so much a hike as a nice stroll through the woods. Great for small kids and those with bad knees or anyone looking for a pretty walk. There were some nice wild flowers and lots of benches at look out points. There was a fair bit of mud on the trail but easy to navigate around it. Also, be sure to pack bug spray as the mosquitos were out in full force. Combining this with another easy trail in the area with a break for lunch in between makes a nice day outing with kids.

Parked at the ranger station, where we started out hike. Easy hike, but very muddy and lots of cow pies as there is cattle graving. I loved that the trail was well marked. There was a sign at every trail junction. If you are new to hiking, this is a bonus if you are nervous about getting lost. We did the hike then drove to Sheep River Falls. Nice picnic area and a short walk to see the falls from the parking lot. The falls are a very popular spot. Lots of people. We also stopped at a viewpoint, but cannot remember the name. It was a great place for pictures and to enjoy the view.

great little hike. Very well marked. amazing views at the top of the ridge as well. Hiked with a 6yo and 10yo, both were fine and enjoyed it.

Below average hiking experience i hikes early may 2020 so it might get better but the trail is muddy 90% of the time. Unless you wear mud boots your feet and shoewear will be wet. I never found the last section of the trail meant to take me up the mountain. Views were average.

Road out Foran Grade then came back on Death Valley Trail. Very muddy and slippery. Used my fat tire bike. A regular tired bike could not have done it. To muddy to hike as well. Would be better later in the season after it’s a little dryer.
