One of my favorite hikes in Kananaskis! A bit of a challenge to get up on the ridge but worth the effort. Pay attention at the end to find the exit to the parking lot, it's not well marked and we definitely missed it.

Our group managed to complete this without hiking poles (incline heavy) and the right footwear (muddy after a day of rain). Definately recommend for large dogs, and the view up top is amazing!

Did this hike yesterday. Went from north to south. Initial grunt up to the first peak is a lung buster, but once you are up on the ridge the views are spectacular and so worth the effort. Had some amazing larch tree patches. We had snow at the top of peak 3 and 4 making the scrambling a little more treacherous. The last part hiking into the south parking lot was long and tiring. This a full day hike!!! Start early or you'll be rushing to beat the sun going down. It is a long 7km.
