Very good hike, steady slope for most of the way. There are a few lookout spots on the way to the top that houses an amazing view of the kananaskis country area! When I went there was a tremendous amount of snow about 3/4 of the way up, but it just added to the challenge. The view at the top is gorgeous. You will get a beautiful sight of the mountain ridge to the west. Overall it was a great hike, would definitely recommend to the experienced hiker!

As of May 15, there was still quite a bit of snow on the trails towards the top

One of my favs! Great short hike with amazing views. May 15/18 - Trail very muddy as still lots of snow melting off. Sections of waist deep snow all the way up. Dry and clear once you pass the treeline.

The trail was nice and not too much debris, just in certain areas but it was easy to bypass. The view near the end was beautiful and there wasn’t too many people on a Saturday, when we went. Saw lots of Moose droppings, so they are in the area. Thought we heard one as well, but didn’t see any.

Lots of debris on trail. Very pleasant hike. Tried Deer Ridge but still lots of snow & ice

Beautiful spot in the fall, fun for kids to wander around lots of wildlife and scenery. We have gone to the picnic spots and roasted weenies

Connect to coxhill for a point to point. Great hike along nice open ridges

I followed Eagle Hill, went up the very steep hill around the loop and followed the well traveled trail back. Somehow ended up on the highway so next time, stay left.

Good trail.

Slow steady climb. Nice day and a nice panoramic view at the rock cropping summit. Wonderful place to enjoy lunch. Have not spent much time in the area. Neat to see Moose Mountain from the Cox Hill vantage point.

Not a well groomed trail most of the way. We got to around sign #3 of the interpretive trail and went left where we should have gone right. Ended up doing a loop that was 3km instead of the 2ish km we had expected. Lots of nice wild flowers and valley views. A little buggy. Nice picnic area after at the pond.

We hiked this 3x in a week in June, so beautiful, one of our favourite, the only issue is you have to drive in dirt road 18 kms.

Always a favourite. Easy hike.

Did it today with my sister who is a beginner hiker. Beginning is switch-backs, manageable for a beginner if you take your time. There wasn't another soul on the trail. Being just the two of us made me worry about bears in the open parts, but luckily all we saw for wildlife were some chipmunks. Great views at the top from both sides. Would recommend.

Pretty decent hike! We got seriously messed up at the start and wandered around on cowpaths for a while. We should have stayed low instead of going up to the lookout bench. After that is fine. Bit of a grind up a cut line but the top was very nice. Walking through pines down to edge of Sibbald Flats. Took our old dog.

Amazing view at the top. I didn't find this hike to be to difficult and it was during winter. Can't wait to go back and see it during the summer.

Nice day for this hike. Early morning venture with no one else on the trail. The trail was mostly dry and in very good shape. There is alot of tall grass in the lower areas, making some sections of the trail slightly difficult to locate. I did see a moose and later a white tail deer just off the trail, otherwise very quite (bonus for early trailhead start). I added Deer Ridge on my way back to the parking area, which was in great shape today.

This is an great hike it's similar to tunnel mountain if you have ever hiked that one. The approach/drive is down dirt road a ways a way. Definitely worth the drive!

Nice walking trail not too steep perfect for beginners

What an absolutely fantastic hike. The weather was perfect, and aside from 2 other couples, we were the only people we saw for almost 4 hours. The hike was moderate, but offered many wonderful views and a vast assortment of wildlife, game trails and tracks, and flowers and foliage. Although the signage is plentiful at the head of the trail, you have to keep your wits about you when venturing to the Deer Ridge 'summit', as we were turned around a few times, turning the 6 km hike into a 7.5 km hike lol. All in all we honestly couldn't have asked for a better place to find some peace outside of the busy city. We'll be back for sure.

Lots of flies out when we were here.
Really nice and easy trail.
I would recommend wearing long pants.
Lots of tall grass and narrow paths.
We tried to attach deer ridge on this day but an angry grouse wouldn't let us pass.
