We haven't done this hike in a few years but plan on going back. I've done it several times. The last time I went was with my sons, who were ages 4 and 6 at the time. Great hike for them. We went in the fall and it was perfect. Forested, beautiful meadows, great views.

We hiked the fescue loop today. Saw quite a few mule deer, bugs and birds. Bathroom stops along the way which was nice. A pretty easy 5km through the Alberta grasslands (although you're basically walking through a cut path surrounded constantly by cow poop). A few little steep parts but nothing too challenging.
