My husband, sister, brother-in-law and I did this hike on our Icefields Parkway day. It is a relatively short hike but it is a steep trek. (It drizzled and my husband slipped on a rock on the way down and cut his hand, thank goodness we had a first aid kit) We hiked it at the end of June and it was muddy and there was some leftover snow. However, the view at the top is well worth the effort. You get an amazing view of the Saskatchewan Glacier and the wildflowers along the hike are amazing. I especially loved the Moss campion which grows all the way up the mountain. I loved the rock formations and the orange lichen that grew on them. We even got to see a pika on the beginning of the trail and on our way back.
