Sick hike with a bit of everything. Lots of crisscrossing with other paths at start so be sure not to turn down Ribbon Creek or old mine roads, though signage is pretty good. First summit is Olympic Ridge which is just above Nakiska T-Bar, then ridgewalk goes for a quite a while and features a LOTR-esque rock garden. Mt. Allan Summit features stunning views of Mount Lougheed, 3 Sisters, Bow Valley to west and Kananaskis Valley to east. No tricky scrambles. Did this as an out-and-back from the Kananaskis side but would like to complete entire ridge walk from Dead Man's Flats next. Time: 7 3/4 hours.
