Great trails, well marked. Icy in spots.

Well maintained. Easy access from Calgary.
Suitable for kids, dogs of all type and people of all skill levels.
The views are great but nothing extraordinary. I recommend for people who are looking for something easy.

As of today there wasn’t much snow, some slippery spots on the incline and declines. Good hike for beginners or young kids as it’s mostly flat, but for the short inclines they are fairly steep! Didn’t see any wildlife but there were some smaller tracks, Beautiful views and the trail is one of the best marked ones we’ve seen. Would recommend to anyone looking for an easier/shorter outing

Very nice trail! Though be aware of cougars. We spotted one.

Easy hike with beautiful views of downtown and the Rockies.

I had a lovely afternoon hike with my dog. It is out of the city but is close enough for a spur of the moment hike. Trails are well marked and easy for a casual walk. Muddy spots.

Great view from the viewpoint ! Family
Friendly hike.

Great hike, for all fitness levels. Did parts of this hike with 3 adults and 6 kids (ages 9-5). Path (exposed tree roots) a little slippery from a light rain, but didn’t make the hike difficult. We went to the lookout and then continued on but took one the paths back rather than the full loop. Geocache on hike. Would come back for sure!!

They do not allow bikes. At all

My nine year old, five year old, and I completed this route August 25, 2018. We were early enough for my children to sample some wild raspberries while at the same time, observe the beginnings of signs of fall. We had lunch at the viewpoint on the provided bench (there are two) We saw a deer off the path, on our return, close enough to get a good look through the trees. The path was dry and an easy walk for all. No signs of mosquitos or blackflies as mentioned by a previous commenter. We would definitely do this route again.

Great Hike! Good for all ages, good signage.

A great trail for children. Flowers, raspberries, wildlife and surprises - everything you need to keep them entertained.

Beautiful non summit views with lots of shade and little elevation so perfect for toddler/baby carrying hike! the eagle viewpoint is a nice halfway/picnic place! Beautiful meadows/flowers!

Beautiful hike, not too far from Calgary. if you go early, there is hardly anyone around (gets moderately busy mid day).

Gorgeous hike with a selection of trails to take, very nice view from the lookout point bi just with the signs on the trail we marked with “ you are here” dots.

I went on August holiday. it was sunny day, but the trail has lots of shade. It is very nice and easy loop for beginner. we walked slowly around shorter route, and took 2 hours total.

This was one of my favourite hikes I’ve been on! I went with a group of friends and we all really enjoyed it! I’d do this hike every weekend if I could! 10/10 would recommend!!

This was a nice hike. Pretty close to Calgary, but feels worlds away. Trail is mostly good, easy to find. Slightly muddy and slippery in spots but totally manageable. A couple of really steep spots. Moderately trafficked.

Nice hike with a beautiful Lookoff. Well marked and maintained. Moderate traffic. Good hike if you haven’t been out in a while and want to see how you’ll do.

Such a beautiful hike! Not too difficult which was perfect on such a hot day. Loved seeing all the butterflies and flowers. Looking forward to doing this one again in a few weeks!

It was a nice trail on a hot day. I think we went around the wrong way as we saw the viewpoint first and hat would have been a better conclusion than a prelude.

The foliage is very tall, a bit harder to manage for my 5 year old but the hike is easy.

Nice forest trail that is quite dense at times. Easy hike with a toddler in a pack with one prolonged incline. I quite enjoyed having a picnic at the lookout. Very nice trail.

nice view at the lookout!

More people need to visit this place, amazing variety of terrain in a small area. Also an amazing view of Calgary and the mountains from the lookout

One of Alberta’s best kept secrets.

Absolutely stunning views of the foothills! Did this hike with 4 children 8-10 and our dog. We will have to go back to complete all the trails in this beautiful park. We had a blast, felt like we were in Vancouver and the wildlife was amazing. Saw many butterflies, deer, flowers, creeks, abandoned cabins, (my kids favorite) and breath taking scenery. We will be back!

Lots of beautiful wildflowers and singing birds. Nice forest walk.
Bug spray necessary.
