Hiked on May 5th. seems to be an old logging road so wide and fairly hard for most of it's runn. Only 2 snow patches to speak of... one 25 feet long and easily walked around. the other was a bit longer. neither was an obdtacle. Did the route ccw and it was more gradual but left all the great views to the last quarter. Took my 10 year old and did the loop in 90 minutes without hurrying. quite busy... people every 5 minutes or so. Most were in shorts and runners making me feel overdressed!

Did it with a 3 1/2 starting with the steep side.
Nice view and a nice hike. Lots off kids and families

Nice, quick hike, close to the city. Going counterclockwise seems to be a bit more of a workout, steady incline. Not difficult, lots of families and dogs. Moderate traffic but not too busy.

Easy trail muddy in parts but a great beginner walk with a few veiw points along the way. To make it more challenging try going up the left side first

We love it! Great family hike and good ice cream in Bragg Creek. My favourite was cherry on a waffle cone.

A great easy short hike with some lovely views! Recommend doing the loop counter clockwise so you get the best views coming down the last leg. Trail is in great shape with a couple muddy sections. May 8/18

May 5/2018. Beautiful sunny Sunday hike. Went counterclockwise to better enjoy the view. Path was mostly dry, bit of mud and a tiny bit of snow. Fairly busy trail but an easy hike and with stops for the view and lunch it took us 2 hours.

Pretty busy today. Lots of people, children and dogs. Some dogs were off leash and that was pretty frustrating for us. It was our first moderate hike and did it counterclockwise. The incline was spread out and doable and gets your heart going! Looking forward for the day that this is easy! After half way it is so easy and was nice!

28/04/18 We went counterclockwise as recommended in the reviews, and I wouldn't have done it any other way. The first half in the forest is covered and doesn't get a lot of sun; there is tons of ice+slush+mud right now (aka wear spikes or hiking boots). 2nd half along the ridge is dry but very steep walking down. Spectacular views!

A nice quick loop that can be done in 2 hours or less and close to Calgary. There is a view point and the trail is doable in the winter and shoulder season if you have micro spikes or snow shoes. Very popular area

Some icy spots, some muddy spots, some dry spots. Overall enjoyable hike with intervals between steep and level trail. Took 2 hours to casually stroll and stop to enjoy views.

Snow packed trails are in good condition. Short muddy sections are getting a little greasy/slippery.

• We didn't power through this, lunch included it only took us 2HRS
• We went counterclockwise, which we would do that way again as the incline is a little more gradual and you get the views on the way back
• Still plenty of snow, a little icy but completely doable with winter boots

Hiked this trail today with my 11mo in a back pack.
Wore good hiking boots and had poles because I anticipated some icy spots (which there were but nothing too concerning). There has been some fresh snow lately so that provided good grip.

Good hike to do. Snow is packed for almost the entire way except the highest part where the wind blows and created some drifting.

A nice winter hike with or without crampons. Going counterclockwise gave us a nice view on the return, and there are a couple of side paths you can take up to higher ground to see a bit more. There's a big flow of ice on one part of the trail but it's easy enough to get around.

Really nice trail, with nice views of the Elbow river valley. Trail was a bit icy today; but, not a real problem with ice cleats. Will definitely check it out again during the summer hiking season. Would also be a nice snowshoeing trail once the snow returns.

was going to snowshoe but the trail is pretty packed down. We went up the hill to the ridge and it was super icy due to the melting and freezing so bring spikes. super easy trail and done it on 2.5 hrs. perfect for when you have a limited amount of time (plus it was a really short drive from Shawnessy in Calgary
