If your on your way back from another hike in the Sheep River area and you don't really feel like you've "earned it", pull off here and do this. Quick little hour long hike with a good amount of elevation and decent veiws. Dont worry about following the trail, theres dozens of different cattle trails. I suggest keep right on the way up for the best views. If your knees are sore take the mapped trail down, its a wee bit easier but without the great veiws

Way too much wind. Broke my string and my kite flew away. Looks like it ended up in Turner Valley. If you see a Hello Kitty kite in Turner Valley, it's mine.

Good, short but steep hike. Nice views of Bluerock Mountain and others. Lot of birders watching for golden eagles.

Need some trail finding skills but a fabulous ridge with great views. Probably due to the dry season but I would have considered it moderate due to scree, trail finding and elevation gain. Definitely do it again.

Great hike. Kids friendly. Very nice view. We shared trail with horses. Trail was dry. Just over 5km.
