Decided to do an easy hike for the day. We took a couple wrong turns at the beginning but ended up were we wanted to be at the Deer Ridge summit. Very easy hike with a decently maintained trail. Definitely some fallen trees on the trail at times but always easy to get around.
The loop we did was around 8 km total, under 300m elevation gain and it took under 3 hours with all our stops for viewpoints and caching.
It was a good first hike of the year and it's only an hour from Calgary. Now it's time for the fun ones!

Fun! A very nice view point considering your only on a foothill.

Still a bit of snow/ice on the incline, but was manageable with shoe spikes. Excited to do this hike again when the ice on the pond melts and the plants bloom!
