The views are fantastic the entire hike. Initially you have changing perspectives of the town of Banff and then at the top you can see down both sides of the mountain into the valleys on either end. Yes, there are lots of tourists so don't expect this to be a place of solitude but it is great for what it is: a moderately sloped trail which is well maintained and provides incredible scenery.

A nice easy one, either to start the season or to take kids or older tourists. Summit super early sunrise for an amazing view of sunrise over Rundle.

It was a beautiful up hill trek with lots of places to rest. Heavily trafficked with very friendly hikers. I hiked with a beginner hiker and she felt it was difficult, but made it to the top with only a few stops.

Not a very technical trail, great for beginners. We have also done this in spring where there was snow and ice and we did just fine. Good views of Banff
