A super chill, fun hike! Definitely a really good choice for a warm up hike and it's family friendly too. I absolutely adore all the wildflowers that were growing along side the path. Going into it we didn't realize that the trail (or at least parts of it) was used for an assortment of activities like equestrian riding and mountain biking so we made note of that as other things to do. It was a warm and dry day when we went but we could definitely see how muddy it could get if it had been raining so keep that in mind.

Nice short little hike with stellar views. Total active time was just under 90 minutes. Trail was very easy to follow and terrain was moderate. Gets steep at the end but majority of the trail is very gradual. Happy trails

Beautiful hike. We did it backwards (turned left at the fork), got most of the uphill out of the way right away and saw some sweet views. Only started recording from the fork.

Not too many bugs today. Yep, the trail is not well marked. Lots of cross-overs. You can use the AllTrails recording to follow the path (make sure you’re going the right way) until you lose service. We also used the “description” part of the app for checking our next moves. It worked well. Make sure to do the Sulphuric Mountain trail first. End with the River View. So, cross the highway and look for the Sulphuric Trail sign. Very pretty. Not many viewpoints.

Great easy trail. Lots of parking in the afternoon on a Monday, took about two hours to complete with my dog and some breaks.

Bear warning! We did this hike today and saw a bear. It turned away and didn’t pay us any attention but when we did a bit of googling there is a grizzly warning for this hike. Awesome hike with tons of wild flowers. Well worth it but travel in a group and take bear spray. https://www.albertaparks.ca/parks/kananaskis/ings-mine-pra/advisories/?name=Elbow%20Valley%20Trail&p=20200606&type=Bear%20Warning#45977

It’s a great small trail if you can find the trail. Got lost for the first half an hour and realized it is on the other side of the road where we park. App helped us to stay in the trail after that, since it’s not a continuous trail. Good view for a short walk. Was able to spot some wild life too in the woods.

Good hike, not difficult, our 7yo twins were able to follow up and enjoy it. Not too crowded, couple of mountain bikers but really respectful. Bring bug spray, most of it is in the forest. After the highest point (6km), almost no shade until the end, but that is the part where we get the scenic views.

Trail was very pretty - with wild flowers, streams and beautiful views of the valley and mountains. Not too busy in the morning when we started but got more crowded around 10 am.

Easy trail to take smaller kids on! Beautiful river walk and then there are multiple trails going along it, we went as far as up and towards the highway, then continued back to our vehicle along the highway as there was a brown bear in the area and I was the only adult with two kids. So still be bear aware even though it’s right by a full campground!

I thought it was a great trail, hard to keep on the right path but whoever places the ribbons really helped us out, didn’t see anyone or any wildlife unfortunately.

June 9, 2020 | This was a great way to start the morning! Took my mom and I less than 2 hours round trip, including a tiny break at the top. The trail was a lot easier to follow than expected after reading reviews. The only place it became tricky were the wide open fields, but if you have some trail navigating experience you'll be fine. There was a bit of animal scat on the trail, but it's definitely avoidable if you watch where you are going. And while you can hear the highway for the first half of the trail, it is beautiful walking through the mossy forests and flower fields. Once the trail stops going downhill (assuming you are doing the loop clockwise), the sounds of the highway subside and it is so serene. A great, easy, trail so close to the city! Definitely recommend.

Nice trail for day hike with family. I would rate trail easy to little moderate. Trail path is well maintained. Great views from the top. Lot of wild flowers along the hike. Finding a spot for parking can be difficult at a time.

Did this three weeks ago and was quite muddy. Very moderate trail, the first bit was steep and I definitely needed rest on the way up. But once past the one third the trail levels out. I’m not an experienced hiker at all

We did this trail on Friday July 3rd. There were quite a few muddy spots but it was no problem for us in our hiking boots. I think it would have been harder to do in other footwear. Some beautiful wildflowers at many different parts of the trail. Our favourite was a large patch of tiger lilies blooming in the hillside. The forest and streams were nice as well. This trail was quite busy (the parking lot was almost full by 9:30 Friday morning). However, because the path is wider than your average trial and a loop instead of out and back we were not passing people as often as I would have expected. My biggest disappointment on this trail is that there wasn’t an awesome place to stop and enjoy the view. You would get more of the views if you do the trail clockwise. If you do the trail counterclockwise you get less of the views but it isn’t as steep.

GREAT hike!!!! Although the signage about midpoint really needs to be updated. There were a few wrong turns which led to some steep declines and back tracking .... but overall it’s a winner. Trails were clear. Some mountain bikers but very respectful. Ended up being more like 11.5km.

Hiked with 4 kids- 9yrs, 6yrs, 4ys, 3yrs. We went up the “left” side of the loop (the one with the views) and would probably do that side up and down with the kids. Doing the full loop was about 1.5km too long for them. The 3yr old I piggybacked on the way back. So, if doing with kids stick to the “left” where the trails merge and walk up those wooden stairs and come back down the same way.
