A nice hike for family. Not crowded. You loose the elevations at the beginning of the hike then you catch it up at the last 2 km. You can also extend your hike to Grizzly Col.

This trail is cool, perhaps not quite as cool as its neighboring Ptarmigan Cirque - but much quieter and less traveled. Its a moderate hike, only a few steep uphill parts. Some nice views of meadows, flowers, the peaks of Highwood. Took us 4 hours return with a 45 minute stop at the cirque for lunch. You can scramble up the cirque to Grizzly Col if you wish for better views and to extend your hike a bit. Theres more about this hike on our facebook group Hike Alberta !
