Caution: Rocks may fall from higher up on the trail as people are scrambling, be cautious and courteous to other hikers. This trail offers beautiful views the entire way up. It is definitely a steep and strenuous hike, with a few portions where you’ll need to use your hands. In some seasons be prepared for large quantities of snow and icy conditions at the top. Micro spikes, crampons and hiking poles highly recommended.

Hiked this yesterday with my dog; not sure I recommend the dog part. Spectacular views, lots of scrambling and easy to lose the actual trail. Going up much easier than coming down with a large dog. Steep decline, loose rocks and again easy to lose the trail. The view still made it worth it. Not for the novice hiker in my opinion.

Started hiking at 3am for the sunrise. It was definitely worth it but the trail was extremely difficult. Straight up the whole way and even on the way down with the sun it was difficult to keep to the trail. We lost the trail many times on the way up as it splits. Basically just keep climbing and you’ll reach the top. Took us 2 hours.

Great hike. Still some snow in the final ascent but it’s manageable. Up and down in two hours.

One of my favourites by Canmore! This one took us 3 hours to get up at a strong pace. I would highly recommend getting a pair of micro spikes from @kahtoola if you’re going up during or around winter months (September - May). There is some light exposure and scrambling near the end. There is still some amazing views before the scrambling if you end up stopping there. Amazing for sunrise! 1.5 hours down. Feel free to ask me any questions on IG @joshmcca

amazing hike, defintely need proper footwear as there is a lot of scrambling and climbing over loose rock. to get to the summit you need to climb a loose scree face then do some climbing along the edge, a little sketchy so i didnt quite make it to the summit. I recommend going off to the right just before the summit and hiking to just below the summit. easy enough to do and amazing views of canmore and ha ling. poles are helpful.

As others have mentioned, this trail is not for beginners, or for the faint of heart. Also proper footwear, poles, attire is a MUST!! As the trails were busy this weekend, we saw so many people dressed inappropriately. Vans will not cut it. The majority of this trail is scrambling on rock faces, especially to the summit. this isn't my favorite trail when it's busy, or with snow. Trail is best enjoyed on the summer months in dry conditions. Views from the summit are incredible. Lastly check yourself for ticks!!!!! My partner had one latch to his head. They like to sit on necklines, and waistlines, make sure to give yourself a good check.

A good combination of steep trail in the trees and lots of scrambling. There are a lot of different paths, so it’s important to pay attention to the safest way, especially when you are at the rock faces or at the scree. Went this weekend when there was a lot of people, and had an incident where a large rock got dislodged above us by other hikers. There are a couple spots up top to “summit” but need proper gear to get to true summit. Saw lots of dogs on the trail but wouldn’t recommend.

The incline is steep and there are some pretty technical bits but the payoff is extremely worth it. Bring more water than you think you'll need. Layers are recommended and poles are recommended especially for the down climb. Make sure you sign your name in the summit box!

Hiked on May 17th, began at 11:20 am. it's a great hike, especially if you are with a group of people that is varied in ability because people who are nervous can stop at the first peak and still get great views. For people who like a challenge, the last 300 meters to the summit is challenging and sketchy at parts. Yesterday I didn't need crampons as most of the snow and ice is now gone.
