First portion of the loop trail (if going clockwise) last portion if going counterclockwise was very icy, recommend spikes. Back portion of trail had icy sections but passible without spikes.

Good family hike. Easy loop. I would recommend Crampons/spikes as it was quite icy coming back. The majority of us were in regular boots and were slipping and sliding quite a bit. Not too busy today when we got there and nice wide trail to easily pass. Nice views at the top.

Short hike but doesn’t seem to offer a lot much for views. Great if you are just looking for a quick hike.

Beautiful day in the Elbow valley. Cleats certainly helped on the more crusty and icy sections but a perfect day to be out!

Hiked up Fullerton (going clockwise - it’s a grunt), took the junction at the top of the loop to Bobcat then hike across and came down Sugar Mama. Did not realize Sugar Mama is a winter horse path so the snow, although packed, is pretty chewed up leading to uneven footing. Overall 9.6km return with a 400m elevation gain.

A great hike today. Good hiking foot wear and crampons a necessity today. Beautiful views of the valley from the ridge.

Always a great hike, done with crampons and would have been fine with good winter boots.

HikingGreat!

A lovely, short hike but beautiful views. We arrived around 9 yesterday, Jan 15th, 4 other people there. We did the loop counter clockwise, enjoyed a breakfast up there, sat and enjoyed the view and the freah air, met a lovely gentleman coming up when we were on the way back down. Parking lot was full when we got back

Fairly easy hike, arrived at parking lot just after 9 on a Saturday and got one of the last few spots. Didn’t see anyone on the trail until the lookout. We did it counter-clockwise and the return half was busy and I was glad to have spikes as it was quite icy in places. Parking lot was full and cars beginning to line up for spaces. Gorgeous day!

Did this loop a few weeks ago on my own, Good trail condition. Parking lot was packed, yet very few people seen on the trail. The public outhouse was absolutely horrible. I dont know when it had last been serviced. Unfortunately I had to use before hitting the trail. The peaceful and beautiful hike made up for it. Views weren't spectacular, but beautiful non the less, and an escape into nature from the hustle and bustle/4 walls of your home.

Beautiful day on hard packed snow. There were great views of the mountains. We used cleats on our boots which we really needed on the icy patches but with them we had good traction and made good time. It is a very nice trail along the ridge and through the woods where we were lucky to see some grouse. We did the trail in a clockwise direction which worked well.

HikingGreat!

Great relaxing hike. However, I wish I would have listened more to the reviews and brought my spikes. Going up wasn’t an issue, however going down was fairly icy. I would definitely bring spikes! Other than that, great view near the top and not too long of a hike.

HikingGreat!

Nicely packed down trail- took about two hours round trip, even when we took our time! Used crampons, which I definitely recommend. Poles would have been helpful for the descent, if you have them bring them!! Friendly reminder- please pack out your garbage. We all can only enjoy this trail if we all take care of it. Lovely winter hike overall!
