Excellent hike to the summit with great views of the lake and the valley below.
For anyone hiking on Sunday September 10th, I lost my black North Face jacket (my absolute favourite) while stopped for lunch while watching the deer below. If anyone finds it, I would be grateful to see it returned (Karey: 587-896-3883).

Great hike to do. Pretty steep most of the way, with sandy/rocky sections towards the end. It's more of a scramble to get to the top, but totally worth it when you get there. The view of Lake Minnewanka is incredible. It was a bit hazy when we got there but was still amazing. Take plenty of water and stop often, took us around 4 hours to complete.

The official trail was a bit of a workout, nothing too crazy, and the view was OK. Not too crowded at all. However you have to continue up the "unofficial" trail to the high point. It is fairly steep and definitely a workout, but the views cannot be beat. Absolutely stunning and well worth the effort. I feel like anyone who has rated this hike poorly either went on a hazy day or did not complete the entire trail all the way to the top.

Good trail, very foresty for the majority of the hike. Arrived at 4pm on a Saturday and were essentially undisturbed. We didn't make it to the top - turned around at the glacier bowl (about 4km up) after 2.5 hours and made it back down in one and a half. Fantastic lookout point after the abandoned house - take a right at the first fenced-off mine shaft and follow the path to the outside. Would recommend!

Belle randonnée de niveau modéré (dans les bois au départ) mais de niveau difficile pour la fin (après l'éboulement rocheux). Mais vaut totalement la peine car la vue en haut est à couper le souffle (prendre une veste car le vent est très frais là haut)! Allez y bien chaussés car la montée de la fin est un défi. Comptez un 3-4h aller-retour. Il y a aussi un beau point de vue en prenant le mini sentier sur la droite juste après la maison abandonnée. On a un chien (très en forme), il a grimpé sans problème.
