HikingScramble

After 2 km flat walk, you start ascent that very soon becomes quite steep. After tree level gets bit more windy. Then moderate scramble up to the top. About 200m higher than Ha Ling, and harder.

Nice hike. Quite quiet. I took the meander trail and then used the mountain traverse to intersect with the upper part of the loop. It added a few more kilometres. Mostly in the trees but got some wonderful views of the mountains crossing several dry stream beds.

Nice, easy trail with beautiful views. Having the app was good as there are many trails in the area.

Easy walking trail, slight uphill and down hill at times. Trail is poorly marked and there are many other trails crossing, makes for getting lost easy.

HikingGreat!RockyScramble

Relentlessly steep, but absolutely worth it for the views above Ha Ling and towards 3 Sisters. Take your time coming down, lots of loose rock and important to stay on trail as there are steep drops either side. The best part is not seeing any other hikers on a Saturday while the Goat Creek car park is overflowing.

HikingGreat!RockyScramble

the hike starts with a 2km walk along the Spray Valley reservoir then there is a noticeable pile of rocks built that directs you into the forest and then there are easy to see trails going up and into the creek bed. it is a relentless, steady incline all the way up out of the tree line. once you reach the tops of the trees, there are some cairns that direct you to the crux of the hike. this part is slabby and scrambly and requires good footwear and some confidence on technical routes. I followed the table tops of slab all the way up to the summit. cool views of canmore and the valley into canmore from calgary, but nothing special about this hike other than the cool creation story behind the mountain by the Stoney Nakoda people. I came back the same way I came down (following the table tops of slab). quick descent down.

Definitely for experienced folk! Proper footwear and poles needed. Did this for sunrise; you’re above the tree line after 3.6 km so I stopped at some of the “viewpoints” before it got too vertical. Didn’t complete the last 200m as I was by myself and it was quite windy—seemed safer to defer for another time. Gorgeous hike, wish I had made it to the summit.

Wow what a hike! Don’t be fooled by the relatively mild elevation gain on paper. The first portion of the hike is completely flat alongside the reservoir (2km~). In reality you gain over 1000m in less than 3.5km which is insane. Needless to say, it is steep all the way to the summit. The scramble portion is short and quite easy but there is exposure just below the summit as you climb on slab. A fall here would mean serious or even life threatening consequences. Be careful and watch for loose rocks on the slab as they can cause you to slip especially when going down. Summit Views are phenomenal! Over to the left you can see Ha Ling peak dwarfed by this beast. Did this one solo and started very late so I ended up descending in the dark although I did have a headlamp. Super eerie being up there alone in the dark when all you hear is your breathing and the wind. Only saw 2 other hikers and they were descending as I was going up. At least the weather was nice.

I was the only one doing the hike. There was noone else. The last 50 meters were sketchy. I slipped 2 meters. It was getting creepy and I couldn't do the final bit.

Verrrrry steep! I tracked 11.6km and there’s a 2.5km approach that’s flat. So you gain 1000m over 3.3km. Towards the top it’s a bit slabby with loose rock over top it. Would NOT recommend if you don’t have proper footwear. Took us 4.5 hours car to car. Pretty much ran on the the way down though. And jogged the approach to the car as it was getting dark.

Running

Great out and back trail run. Mostly rolling hills, with a TON of roots. If you don't like roots....run! Not much to see as you are in the trees along the river most of the time. Trail starts at the west end of the Nordic Centre, run Banff Trail from the Nordic Centre parking lot to the trail head. Trail ends at the Banff Springs Golf Course road. Continue running along the road to the Banff Springs Hotel, then head back.

Very steep trail and a little sketchy towards the top because of all the loose rocks. Take your time, bring gloves and poles and you will be fine. Only saw 4 other people awesome hike.

Awesome hike. Very steep the whole way up but if you want to climb something big and still be back down for lunch this is perfect. 4.5 hours car-to-car. Past the tree-line on the way up there's lots of slabby rock to climb (which I enjoy) but it can be a little sketchy to climb down so just veer towards the right of the ridge crest on the way down to have some looser, chunkier rock to climb down

Great trail! Very steep both up and down probably averaging 45 degrees for most of it. Views of the Rockies were awesome. Bring lots of water.
