Beautiful loop above Island Lake Lodge, Fernie

It was a nice, fairly easy hike but the trail gets to a point where it’s too overgrown to find so we had to take the maintenance trail back

Beautiful views. We went counter clockwise from the lodge and climbed to the summit they have cleared the blow down and the trail is entirely passable. Coming down along the fire road was not as much fun as walking through the Bush. Some bear scat around but didn’t see any of the furry varmints.

Tons of winterfall that has yet to be cleared. After the first bench at the top of the first set of switchbacks it is impassable. Trail crews were starting clean up on the lower trails when I was leaving. Great scenery. Make sure to have bear gear as there was several piles of fresh scat.

Steady, strenuous climb to the top of Baldy, but well worth it.
