The first 4 km up Stewart Creek is fairly simple. As you enter the base of the Sister's Bowl you will see the Middle Sister faux summit. Don't be fooled. You've a long way to go. Stop for a bite a basecamp and keep going. The view is well worth the plod.

Pretty steep, direct ascent. You'll lose the trail from time to time due to flood damage, just follow the drainage up. Great views from the top, worth the effort.

Trail starts on extremely rockey river bed. I highly recommend good ankle supporting boots as there is lots of loose rock and it can be challenging. Follow up the left side of the rock creek where you will see carins and trail markers. However, we lost the trail about half way up due to snowfall the night before. Other groups also had this problem and we could find a safe way up or even trail markers guiding us. Try from late June on where the path will likely be easier to see.

Very easy to find and navigate. Head straight up the creek/rock bed all the way up the canyon then once at end the trail take you up to the left through some tree until you reach the ridge line and view of Canmore. Took about 4.5hrs going quite slow as we where with a group with various hiking experiences.

The views were fantastic. The trails were little bit hard to find especially since we were doing it after snows a day and two days before. The creek was bit a challenge especially on the way back because of the melting snow that make current little strong and the bed was slippery.

The hike was well worth the views without all the people. The trail can be hard to find at times, just follow the rocky bed up to the pass. It took my partner and I 3.5 hours including time spent at the top admiring the views.

Good trail! not very well marked, but there's a little bit to of a path. About half way up you just follow the stream an look for a good rock trail to follow. Recommended as a spring/ summer hike. Watch for weather moving in ig moves quick!!! we had to abort our first attempt due to flash blizzard.
