Fantastic hike! Fairly steep towards the end but the view is entirely worth it. The trail could be marked better so allow yourself extra time to find it.

Fantastic hike! Definitely was a challenge of my fitness but SO worth it when you get to the top!!!
The views as you go up are mesmerizing, and the panoramic view at the top is just breath taking.
We took our dog with us, which made it a bit tricky, as he’s still a pup and tends to pull on the leash, which is a bit scary as you’re trying to climb up or down the trails.
The trails are primarily gravel and rock. Some spots are quite steep. The trails are quite narrow, people hike with dogs, so please keep your dogs on a leash the entire time! Even if they are well behaved.

The only criticism I have is I wish the trail was better marked. There were a few spots that we were not sure where go to. Thankfully we ran into people on the trail that knew where they were going, so we followed them for a bit.

Went into this trail not knowing what to expect, until we topped out on a huge cliff overlooking beaver mines Lake. Easily one of the best views I've ever experienced. Follow the orange circles for the best way up and don't get lured in to going up the scrambles at the end. Great view of castle mountain to the south as well!

We took the alternate route up (turned left rather than right at the first major view point) and found that the top third of the hike was pretty challenging on steep scree. That being said, the route up to the scree was beautiful and the views at the top are absolutely stunning. We added the 2kms over to the true summit to the east and felt it was definitely worthwhile as the views continue to be impressive. We did cross some deep snow in that section but following others footsteps we didn’t need spikes. Found four ticks on us after the hike!

We were a little in over our heads when we did this hike. We didn't know what to expect, and definitely felt like we bit off more than we could chew. But the views at the top made it all worth it.

Had an awesome time doing this one yesterday (April 23, 2017) Mostly a hike up with 1 really fun but optional scrambling portion. The views here are unreal and the rock has some really unique colours. The snow was a bit deep down low In the trees but manageable without spikes. Be aware we also saw a few ticks!

This hike starts inside the Beaver Mines Lake Provincial Recreation Area. The trail head is well marked and there are signs indicating there is bear activity in the area. The trail itself has 765 meters of elevation to reach the peak. The trail has a number of steep narrow parts which traverse a lot of skree and rocky terrain. The trail markers can be misleading as a number of informal paths appear to be marked as well so you can get turned around a fair bit, but finding the main trail again isn't difficult. The views from the top are spectacular and make the trek work while. From the mountain top to the East of the main peak you can see clear towards Lethbridge. The trail has a lot of sun exposure so be prepared to have a lot of water and deal with direct sun exposure the entire trip.
