Quick hike in the Bow Valley

Fantastic view of the Bow Valley ! A quick, 1.5 hour leg burner to the top. Bring layers as as the top section is exposed and can be very windy and may snow in the summer!

Hiked this trail in mid-May - we were totally fogged in so I didn't get to experience the view, but even so it was remarkably beautiful. I'd strongly suggest an early start as the trail got really busy by late morning. Wear appropriate footwear (flipflops don't cut it!) and bring some hiking poles to save your back on the way...

An excellent hike and the view is breathtaking. Make sure to have a camera, some snacks. Also it can be cold up at the peak.

I've done this hike twice now. Amazing views. I'm pretty slow and the first time it took me 2 hours to the summit. You can also to to miners peaks on the other side of the saddle. The trail is easy to follow but the trail head is a tad harder to find. It's across the road from the goat... More

Short but difficult hike - Start from trailhead up the track opposite Goat Creek car park, the distance is not the issue as it is a relatively short hike. The path for the most part is in the trees and zig zags back an to, there are some tricky parts where the path is rock but on the whole the... More

It's pretty much straight up via switchbacks. The hiking masses have eroded the trail and worn the boulders smooth. Watch your footing on the shiny rocks. There are many vantage points along the way to catch your breath and take in the beauty of the valley. Take some water, snacks, and a windbreaker for the top. The views are absolutely... More

This is a must do on the list of visiting Canmore. Locals call this the cheater mountain because you can drive up half the mountain then hike the rest. Views are outta this world and you may just come across a Big horn sheep.

This is a very strenuous hike and basically a climb the whole way. It took us about 3 hours round trip. The views at the top were amazing and well worth the effort. Take lots of water and a snack or lunch. A light jacket is recommended at the top as it is breezy. The view of Canmore is picturesque... More

Great day hike with an amazing view at the top! Well worth the climb! A bit of scramble at the top, but a good trail the whole way.
