Nice day hike, not difficult and not too overcrowded. Was surprised at number of people who bike this trail! Continue on from Prairie Loop to Powderface Ridge for some nice views of the surrounding area in all directions!

Amazing...ups and downs...shaded and open...well-marked trail from the start at the very end of hwy 66. Spectacular, awe-inspiring view west from the ridge summit. 4 hours takes you up and back including a side-trip to the flag and cairn, and a rest break and stroll along the ridge.
Dog-friendly too, as my 7 yr old Shepherd cross will attest to.

Great hike near calgary! We went in 2 cars so left one on the powderface parking lot and the other 7km ahead where we started the ascent. Great to do it that way as you get 2 peeks and amazing views!

Nice short hike. I like to go at a good fast pace but the climb had me sucking air a couple of times. There was snow on the top and a good breeze but I had my sandwich and a cup of tea and came back down. The dogs loved it as well.

This is an easy hike. Little steep at the first 2km but nothing we can't hike on.
