Trail is mostly dry. A couple of aggressive off leash dog owners. I wish there were weekend patrols.

Nice walk, very busy parking lot. Tiger lily loop is icy on the north ridge but the Lutheran loops are clear and sunny.

Nice variety of easy and more challenging trails. Would have given it a 5, but some of the paths weren't marked all that well and we backtracked a few times to get back on the correct trail.

Parts of the loop not on pavement is quite icy so micro spikes would be a good idea. Poles not really necessary but would strongly suggest taking Tiger Lilly and follow it down and return up via the paved trail. Nice day for the hike.

mostly paved walk with great view of the valley. Lots of deer in the valley trees and the hike took about 45 minutes.

HikingGreat!

Always enjoy any of the trails around Glenbow, trails are well maintained, vast and numerous throughout this amazing area. I was sad to see today that some people have decided to go off trail on this historic and protected land and abuse it, so let’s hope this area stays open for us all to enjoy.

HikingGreat!

Great walk for a sunny December day. Combination of Clean paved paths and gravel wide paths - found the surfaces non-slippery. Three loops provide great mountain views with some elevation changes.
