Beautiful view! Soo worth the climb in. It was very smokey but it made for some cool silhouettes of the mountains. I wouldn't suggest doing it with a dog. We had to carry our dog down most of the way.

Really steep, good workout and worth it for the views.

Consistently steep trail that offers a lot of variety of terrain. The views are great throughout, especially once you get up to the meadow and ridge. It can be challenging right before that ridge due to the scree you have to scramble up. When you're going up, look to the right for the trail that takes you to the ridge. Don't trek the scree all the way to the top. Coming back down there's a part where we went down a different trail than we took up, I don't know if it's been washed out a bit but we missed it. However it's easy enough to see where you need to go.

Amazing views from the top. Quite steep throughout the whole hike. Going down was definitely harder, and we managed to get lost along the way. Luckily we had AlpineQuest and were able to find our way back onto the path (but not without difficulty).

Physically challenging, not so much on a technical level, unless you are not comfortable going down steep hills.

A hike that offers some beautiful views of the Kananaskis Valley. Short but steep and unrelenting, it is extremely rewarding once you reach the peak.
