This was quite the workout since we went all the way to the upper ridge which was over 2000' elevation gain. We should have done the fire road up and the shorter steeper path back down. Also a bit confusing at the top since there were so many paths - would not want to be up here in a cloud!... More

We took the fire road up and it was one of the most boring hikes we have ever done. The views from the top were worth the effort. Signage could be much better at the top. There is none and it is a problem. The map we had wasn't very good either.

This was fantastic. Quite a tough trail to hike and took 2 hours + to walk up. Some of the trail was closed due to an event which meant the route was steeper and more challenging. The end of the trail has stunning views and so glad we took the time to climb up - awesome! Coming down takes less... More

Really easy hike all the way to the top. Trail was wide and not too steep. The last section in up on a ridge, but nothing to be afraid about even if you have fear of heights. It very very rocky up there, but still wide enough so that you don't risk falling on either side at every step. The... More

We almost did not do this hike because of the varied reviews. The trek up the fire road is relatively easy technically although it is a good cardio workout. The best part is after you leave the fire road and keep going to the top of Bald Hill. My here was still some snow on the trail when we went... More

The trail out past the first bald hill and back to the trailhead is about 14km though most of it is reasonable walk. The first three kilometers has limited views but once you ascend high enough the panorama is amazing; but it gets better. If you follow the pass or go up on to the top of any of the... More

Walk one hour, rest ten minutes and then go uo for ten minutes more. Suddenly, it's so cold and windy like you were in Himalaya. But when you are on the top, it's magic: a 360° view of the range. Spectacular.

This took us about 3 hours and was a pretty solid effort but getting up above the tree line to see the views was well worth it. Plenty of people on the trail so we felt safe at all times.

Great hike. Can be challenging toward the top. However when you get to the top you can see Lake Maligne and Maligne Canyon.
