This one was great for a first hike of the season as it’s not crazy difficult, the hike up and down was beautiful and the trail wasn’t very busy for a sunday. The views at the top are amazing all the way around, but the boardwalk is fairly busy from all the gondola users coming up as well.

Really easy hiking and beautiful views. It was very very windy at the top so dress appropriately.

You have to do this walk when you go up to Sulphur. It's an easy boardwalk and steps up to the next peak and an old weather station.

Easy boardwalk and stairs at the top. Kids found it fun. Crowded, though, with people who take the gondola up to the visitor centre and then walk this path. Still, worth it to say that you reached the summit.

An easy hike that took our group about 3 hours to complete, including lunch and exploration at the top. The views were really nice from the top of the mountain, and you can get a good view of Banff. A heavily trafficked trail.
