Just completed today May 15, 2016.

To access the trail park at Evan-Thomas parking lot down Kananaskis Trail (Highway 40) 17km Past Barrier Lake Information Center.

Nice Wide trail to start but do note The trail is not maintained after the first 2 kilometers. The trail mostly follows the creek all the way up but it can be pretty easy to lose at times and some bushwhacking is required. We made a small loop out of it by going to the small tarn near the top then hiking left up a very steep, grassy ridge. After the grueling climb we got to enjoy a nice ridge walk with amazing views all around! A very strenuous hike not for the super casual type but I would definitely recommend it if your in for a challenge! Took us about 7 hours or so with lots of breaks.
