This was a wonderful spring hike with the whole family. 4 Boys age 3-11. There is some nice elevation gain at the beginning for some nice views, but nothing too strenuous. Stopped for lunch half way. No real difficulty and total moving time was about 2 hours.

Beautiful views. Finished this hike with 4 adults, 3 children under the age of 3 years old and 2 dogs. There was a bit of standing water along the path and a bit of snow but all in all, the path was in good condition (nothing unexpected for spring). We did this hike with a stroller but I would recommend a carrier for small children. The path is rocky in some areas and there are areas with tree roots, but otherwise it is pretty tame. A great day hiking trail for the family.

Nice moderate fall or spring hike.Some limited views west of the mountains. May be cattle in the area. Very similar in distance, elevation and views as Fullerton Loop.

Really enjoyable hike with some beautiful views. The trail has some marked signs, but no sign on the road so it is difficult to find at first. Go west 1.6 km from the Sandy McNabb recreation area and you'll see a pull out area on the right for you to park. The trial starts off from there.

I'm a moderate hiker so this was challenging. 3 k's 330 meter elevation uphill. but well worth the views when you get to the top.

Was there July 14th, 2013 to "work off" the week long Calgary Stampede. The trail has suffered the same damage from the flooding that many other areas in Southern Alberta has encountered. We spoke to 4 people on horseback who turned around at the top area rest spot because of the risk from the sinkholes, however we continued on and once reaching the meadows the trail disappeared, washed away with so much silt covering any sign of the connecting trail. Reluctantly we crossed the marsh and hiked through a field before backtracking onto the same trail and returning the same route, 18KM round trip.

The Sheep River Falls are beautiful, the area along both sides of the river have some water damage but its still easily accessible.
