Did this hike with my mom for our first scramble and we both made it all the way! The most upper section is the trickiest just with loose rock to get to the lookout but it is well worth the climb. Took is about 3.5 hours with a couple of stops and lunch at the top. Pack lots of water... More

Good steep grunt up 700m through the forest. Great for getting the legs going and nice summit views. Sadly very very busy at the weekends and the trail was basically mud or slippery ice. You have to climb quite high before you get any views. Summit scramble is easy and fun.

The trail from start to finish is a incline through changing terrain. Challenging hike but do-able. The beginning was warm through the trees but the closer you got to the top the dirt changed to gravel and the temperature dropped. Wear proper shoes, and warm clothing (if you want to comfortably stay at the top without freezing). Amazing view of... More

This hike is spectacular because of it elevation at the top. Because you have to drive up in a vehicle to get to the bottom trail. when you reach the top your higher than almost every around. It's a great training trail for much bigger higher hikes. On a hot day in summer this trail is very popular. As an... More

Relatively short but very steep hike. The views from the top are totally amazing and worth the hard work on the scree. Be careful at the top as you are exposed to the cliff face. Not great if you have vertigo or with wild kids that won't stay calm and near you.

If in the Canmore area this is a must do for the adventurous type!! Be alert as weather patterns can change very quickly. I did this hike a couple of years ago with members of my family. Some of it was sketchy at best! Worth the hike to the top though.

A challenging day hike with great rewards but not a walk in the park. Go prepared for weather change and high winds near the top.

Perfect day trip. 90 mins up, a bit less than that to get down. But the best view of the Rockies you're likely to come across outside of a helicopter...and you will have earns it too. Do yourself a favour and go and see Darren at gear up to get crampons, would be super hard without them.

My newlywed wife and I decided to hike to the top in late January as part of our honeymoon. It was unseasonably warm, so we figured it would be doable. As we came to the trailhead, we saw three other hikers come down with spikes on their shoes. They warned us the trail was a sheet of ice and was... More
