A few trees down soon after trailhead will require chainsaw work to clear. Snow line was around 1300m November 10 with over 100cm at 2000m. Nice easy to follow trail even in the snow.

The road up tho the trail head is no joke. Don’t go up unless you have 4wd and preferably a truck, as it is approx 10-15km of forestry roads up a steep mountain. It is very narrow and has a few washouts that may catch out a smaller vehicle, and would be pretty questionable if it rained before you head back down. Take care out there!

Straight up and straight down. Heart pumping on the way up. Quadriceps screaming on great down. The last bit of ascent can wig you out if you think too hard. Just stay focused and keep going... it’s so worth it. Breathtaking beauty abounds.

this was a beautiful like just got back this morning there's a tower you can stay in just make sure you bring your own spoons and forks and sleeping bag there's beds up there and make sure you stop at the last Creek grab enough water but yeah I told the amazing hike

If your car can make it to the trail head, you can make it to the top! Beautiful views, beds and cabin on top of mountain , would have stayed overnight if I knew!

Not a very challenging hike but it comes with a great view at the top and a nice little shelter to block the wind! After doing a lot do hikes/climbs in Banff National Park, this one can compare to some of them. Would definitely recommend.

It's amazing hike but pretty hard for the first km and last km. Most amazing view I have ever seen, I'd do this again!
