Beautiful sunny day to hike up Mount Baldy. Some snow and mud on upper third of trail but clear blue skies and incredible views.

This is one of my go to hikes to bring friends to. It's an easy to find hike off the road, and the views are beautiful at the top. You can typically start hiking it in march or April, if you don't want a lot of snow on a hike.

This is a great hike if you want to escape the city for a few hours without a huge commitment or physical strain. It's close to Calgary and not very busy however I still recommend going early in the morning. The trail was covered in snow when we went in March however cleats were not needed as the trail was packed down well. The snow made for beautiful pictures and great scenery! Most of the trail is at a steady incline but the last few hundred meters is quite steep. Poles are recommended! The top was very windy and cold however gave great views of both the Rockies and the Alberta plains. For a short hike you get a great view. I would definitely recommend this hike and would suggest it as a winter as the forest is beautiful with the snow.

We did this hike the morning after the first snow this winter. It was a nice gradual hike with steeps and flats. The path was very difficult to follow, however, after the first hour as everything was covered in snow and no path was visible after we came to a high clearing. A beautiful walk in the woods!

A decent climb, and great for a short outing, but a significant portion involves stumbling across loose rock and pebbles in what I imagine was once a riverbed. Although I would do the longer Baldy loop (the summit looks fun), I would pass on the Pass in future.

A fairly steady but moderate climb. Once it levels out at the saddle take a small break before ascending the much steeper climb to baldy peak. Well worth it !

Good hike. We continued to the trail to south summit but we stopped after the first hump.
