Headed out for an 11 am start. Start of the trail is REALLY icy. Recommend ice grippers on your shoes if you are doing this hike. The backside of the Loop is in great condition.

A nice easy trail. Going right at the fork (counterclockwise loop) is easier, as the elevation gain is more spread out over the distance. This trail would be a good intro trail for trail running.

4 stars as it was quite wide and in good shape. A portion of the trail is shared with mountain bikers, so be aware of that. The views are nothing special.

Nice short hike close to the city. If you turn left at the bottom junction you face nearly all of the elevation gain immediately in one steep attempt for about 20 minutes. If you continue to the right of the junction you will incur the elevation gradually over the hike with a few small steep pockets. We did the loop in 1 hour and 40 min with two 5 min breaks with the pooch.

Good satisfying short hike easy to access from the city. Went up the steep side first, worked up a sweat going up for a nice stroll back down with the pooch

We saved the best (views) for last so we turned right at the bottom junction.

Nice climb, at the Y I'd go left and tackle the steep section first. Would totally do it again.

New washrooms parking is on the north side of 22 now and it was a good burn! We were 4 mom's with littles on our backs and we all enjoyed ourselves.

Moderate intensity, great for trail running. No washroom in parking lot currently, looks under construction so may be in place soon. Good amount of people on the trail. Spots for picnics and look outs.

There was no bathroom available in the parking lot due to the trail flooding damage, It has been under construction and it looked like it was ready to use soon. We went up counter clockwise and it was very rewarding. We saw squirrels, cows and a deer. 2 hours from parking lot including a short break.

Great little hike for when you're just getting into, have dogs or kids with you or want to get out for a hike but still feeling a little lazy and don't want to push super hard.

Nice trail lots of views, take the left side up first then the mountain view is always ahead of your hike, good steady climb up. Took about 2.5 hours at a steady pase from the parking lot.
Nice family hike with the dog.

Nice moderate hike to do counterclockwise so you are descending after the south viewpoint of the mountains and Elbow River.

Not a bad hike! Didn't find it particularly challenging and I was carrying my daughter on my back so I wouldn't call it moderate. Nice short hike - like that it's a loop.

Fairly easy loop. Great hike for parents with a little one on your back; makes for a good workout. Pretty views at the top. Easy hike, close to the city, and great to grab a bite in Bragg Creek after.
