Some guides call it moderate, others call it difficult. Not difficult, but strenuous. Straight up the whole way and the rocky section at the top is tricky when coming down, but the view is stupendous and worth the blisters on my toes.

Great Hike for all skill levels. nice start to our hike - outback trip. easy to access from town site , parking can be a challenge , better off to park a little ways away and make your way there.

I've hiked all over. Up some of Americas highest mountains. This hike doesn't have any level sections. It's up from bottom to top. Very rewarding and beautiful views. Great folks along the way. Be polite and off to take pics for others. Enjoy.

I would say we were of average fitness and it took us 3 hours to get to top and back (including frequent stops to catch our breath and also to take photos). The view from the peak is amazing. However be prepared for never ending steepness and very little flat sections. To go from the tree line to the peak... More

We did this hike on our third day of hiking. We should have done it on the second day because I was tired before we started. It is a steep climb over switchbacks and sometimes I had to grab onto trees. I would say I am of average fitness, so if you were in great shape it would be easier.... More

Wonderful views, well wooded beginning, only marked at the base of the trail. Very steep in several parts and not the safest when the rain starts falling. If you are in decent shape and like a challenge, it is well worth the sore legs. Just be aware that you need to scan ahead for the trail and choose your path... More

Steep hike through the woods with roots and a well worn trail. The fun begins above tree line. Here is scree and rock across the saddle than the last 20 minutes up to the summit more of the same. Take your time and you'll be fine but if you don't like exposure stick to the saddle and skip the summit.... More

Very challenging , all uphill to the lookout. No break , or flat area to rest. Would recommend for people who are fit . Bring bug spray and lots of water. Weather is fickle in Canmore, so bring layers with you. Do not attempt if wet or rainy, trail will be dangerous.

It was a really good hike with a pretty trail. It was no easy hike though. Also it was cloudy when we went to the top. So go on a clear day

The weather changes there by the minute, so be prepared to go from a pleasant sunny climb to blistering show and hail. Good footwear is a must.
