Great hike, for all fitness levels. Did parts of this hike with 3 adults and 6 kids (ages 9-5). Path (exposed tree roots) a little slippery from a light rain, but didn’t make the hike difficult. We went to the lookout and then continued on but took one the paths back rather than the full loop. Geocache on hike. Would come back for sure!!

Beautiful hike, not too far from Calgary. if you go early, there is hardly anyone around (gets moderately busy mid day).

This was one of my favourite hikes I’ve been on! I went with a group of friends and we all really enjoyed it! I’d do this hike every weekend if I could! 10/10 would recommend!!

This was a nice hike. Pretty close to Calgary, but feels worlds away. Trail is mostly good, easy to find. Slightly muddy and slippery in spots but totally manageable. A couple of really steep spots. Moderately trafficked.

Nice hike with a beautiful Lookoff. Well marked and maintained. Moderate traffic. Good hike if you haven’t been out in a while and want to see how you’ll do.

Such a beautiful hike! Not too difficult which was perfect on such a hot day. Loved seeing all the butterflies and flowers. Looking forward to doing this one again in a few weeks!

It was a nice trail on a hot day. I think we went around the wrong way as we saw the viewpoint first and hat would have been a better conclusion than a prelude.

The foliage is very tall, a bit harder to manage for my 5 year old but the hike is easy.

Nice forest trail that is quite dense at times. Easy hike with a toddler in a pack with one prolonged incline. I quite enjoyed having a picnic at the lookout. Very nice trail.

More people need to visit this place, amazing variety of terrain in a small area. Also an amazing view of Calgary and the mountains from the lookout

Absolutely stunning views of the foothills! Did this hike with 4 children 8-10 and our dog. We will have to go back to complete all the trails in this beautiful park. We had a blast, felt like we were in Vancouver and the wildlife was amazing. Saw many butterflies, deer, flowers, creeks, abandoned cabins, (my kids favorite) and breath taking scenery. We will be back!

A great shady hike ideal for a hot summer's day with a good mix of up hill, down hill and flat sections. Take the short hike to the viewpoint on the back section for some great views of the Rockies from the ridge.

Great little trail system and not far from Calgary. The trails were packed down but we snowshoed anyway.

Did this trail with my pregnant wife, recovering dog from surgery, and 4 year old son. Very family friendly, but still somewhat hidden from the crowds. Great forest setting.
