Was my first hike (and summit!) in Canada, and wasn't disappointed. The power lines at the beginning are a bit boring, but once you start up the trail towards the summit you won't be disappointed. The views were jaw-droppingly beautiful, and have more photos on my phone than I know what to do with. There's even a spot where you can do a bit of a rock scramble close to the top, which was a fun climb as well. Would definitely recommend this hike to someone looking for a harder summit hike but doable in a day.

Beautiful hike on a beautiful day with great views of the valley and towards Canmore. I would give it a 5 star except that long approach up the power lines feels endless and without much change. Truly some beautiful views though. I have done this one about 4 times through the years now and I love the easy access of Hwy 1.

Good hike, liked the very very top of the mountain. Goes from 0-100 with the elevation .... but still, like any hike. No regrets.

Great view at the end but a fairly boring hike with sparse shade

Did this one last year. Start early as there is no where to hide from the sun once out of the trees. Most of the trail is out of the trees. Beautiful views.

The first 3-4km is mostly along a power line ROW. After that, the hills start getting steep and more interesting. The view on the top was amazing. We can see other mountains around the area and the Bow River at the bottom.
