We hiked up boundary ridge and strange brew, came back on ranger summit.

The ranger summit portion was decent.
Pretty busy on May long.
No snow, very sunny.
A fellow hiker said there was snow and ice a week prior but it had all melted by now.

Hiked up to the summit from the West Bragg parking area before returning via Strange Brew. Mid-march trail was still mostly ice-covered, micro-spikes were a huge benefit for us.

Trail is mostly a walk in the woods, but is consistently uphill (we recorded over 300m of elevation gain). Views are limited as you are in trees nearly the whole way which has the side-benefit of protection from the winds in the area.

Overall a pleasant and quick escape from Calgary.
