Busy hike, try to go early as it is a narrow path. Ice cleats help but not required, 1 hour walk to the pass where it opens up and then some continue to hike one or the 2 summits.

The walk to the pass was nice and cruisy. After the pass however, I had to turn back as I was post holing on the snowshoe packed trail on the way to Midnight Peak. I just wore boots with no spikes to the pass and it was fine.

Completed the trail Saturday, April 10th. Conditions were good in the morning as it snowed the evening prior, but started to get slushy in the lower area in the afternoon. Steady, moderate elevation on the way up and mostly in the trees. The view at the top was pretty good. Overall a good moderate hike close to Calgary.

Great hike! I would recommend microspikes and poles this early in the season though I did without. they would've helped for the last 1.5km going up.

Great shoulder season hike. The first 1-2 km was a bit mucky, but the rest was hard packed snow. Quite windy once we got out of the trees. Very pretty view. We had crampons and poles and I would recommend, especially crampons right now.

Trail condition was okay, recommend to start before 10am to avoid slushy conditions. Spikes are optional but wear them if you have them. Hike is in the trees for nearly the entire time until you reach the pass at the base of midnight peak.

Beautiful trail. Did it without spikes and it was doable, but spikes would have been good to have for large sections.

HikingGreat!Snow

Really nice hike. Perfect snowpack, sticky but not slushy. Little bit of ice at bottom but snow was great past that. Trodden trail goes all the way to the pass, but doesn't go up to the peak. Quite once you get to the pass, so pack your shell. Bring some gators if you plan on going past the pass, but you can manage fine up to the pass without them.

Great conditions and perfect snowpack. The snow was too sticky for my ice cleats (foot snowballs galore) but sticky enough to not really need it. Sun was out And weather was perfect! Probably won’t be a great hike in the spring with all the snow but this time of year is perfect. Steady incline the whole way too, a bit steeper at the top but not unbearable for the average hiker. Nice view at the top too (being a windbreaker). Highly recommend.

Moderate to difficult hike. Trail packed with snow but made it to the summit. Also did west end of Mt. Baldy but i prefer the south end as the view is amazing. Will do it again in the summer.

Nice day and good views. A fair bit of snow up there. Didn’t need spikes or poles.

A nice, not busy hike on Wed. I Definitely recommend spikes as there are icy sections and packed snow higher up. Despite wind up top and partly cloudy it was really nice views. I had thought to try snowshoeing but glad I didn’t, wouldn’t have worked.

Beautiful little trail. Actually felt easier than it’s “moderate” rating. You start through the trees and up along a riverbed, most of the incline is up through the trees near the end of the trail. A lot of people say the view wasn’t that great at the top.. you get 360 views of mountain peaks, and can see all the way down across the valley to the trans Canada hwy, I thought it was gorgeous. As usual it’s windy as hell at the top but that’s to be expected on the top of a mountain. Definitely some icy spots in the shaded areas of the trail and everyone should have spikes hiking in winter/spring, makes for easy going :)
