On vacation in Banff, we decided to hike up to the top, which took us 3+ hours. Since we live in Texas where it's flat and near sea level, we had to take several breaks along the way. Make sure you bring at least 2 bottles of water per person just in case and wear comfortable shoes. What a beautiful way to exercise and a great feeling of accomplishment. Once we reached the top we loved the gorgeous views and relaxed for a bit taking pictures and talking with other travelers. It was lunchtime, so we ate grilled hotdogs at the round restaurant and was delicious. We decided to take the gondola down which took more like 3+ minutes. It costs the total amount ($34.95 each) if you ride up and down or walk down, however if you walk up and ride down it's half price.
