This was my first hike and we did it on a warm day in late September. Was proud we made it up in 90 minutes until a man probably in his 60’s ran up behind us at the summit and said he did it in 41 minutes!!

A nice winter hike with or without crampons. Going counterclockwise gave us a nice view on the return, and there are a couple of side paths you can take up to higher ground to see a bit more. There's a big flow of ice on one part of the trail but it's easy enough to get around.

Loved it. Gorgeous views. Not too strenuous but a good workout!

Great day for it! Lots of snow on the ground

Definitely make sure to bring headlamps for each member of your group.

Great views a
on the return

An excellent training hike close to Calgary. We try to do it 3 times a month or more all year round if we are training for expeditions. Not sure why it is listed as a scramble, though. No scrambling involved. Well defined trail. Excellent views. Definitely take microspikes in fall, winter and spring.

Really nice trail, with nice views of the Elbow river valley. Trail was a bit icy today; but, not a real problem with ice cleats. Will definitely check it out again during the summer hiking season. Would also be a nice snowshoeing trail once the snow returns.

No really interesting hike

Super easy hike but not the best views. Good for a quick outing out of the city but would recommend a different hike if you’re going to the views or for a more challenging hike.

Beautiful hike but decently hard, especially in the winter!

My all time favourite. Gets the heart going but easy to do in a short time. Good anytime of year. Shared with horses.

Awesome hike with great reward at the end. I believe this is also called inges mine??? Very hot to do in summer. No shade on trail.

Love this hike. Stunning views from the top with a picnic table to have your lunch. You can also sign a visitors book. Has some steep parts but overall a great hike.

Always a favourite! Hiked this for sunrise on Jan 9/18 and the trail was nicely packed down & easy to follow in the dark! I had micro spikes and poles, as some sections were icy.

was going to snowshoe but the trail is pretty packed down. We went up the hill to the ridge and it was super icy due to the melting and freezing so bring spikes. super easy trail and done it on 2.5 hrs. perfect for when you have a limited amount of time (plus it was a really short drive from Shawnessy in Calgary

Short hike, great work out due to long hill. Nice way to spend few hours away from the city. Can get very busy. Defiantly need spikes on the ridge.

This is a great warm up hike to shake things out for the season. I’ve done it a few times and have enjoyed it every time.

I hiked to this site during summer seasons; the view in the winter is spectacular! Much easier and faster to come down (as the snow always play cushion if one falls). I loved it and first hike for 2018 (Jan 1st).
