The hike was great, relatively short (1.5-2hrs to get up, 1 to get down) and although a good workout, not too tough. I foolishly took public transit to get there, which was triple the price of renting a car :)

Make sure you go on a sunny day to fully appreciate the gorgeous views of Canmore from the summit. Difficulty is between beginner to intermediate.

A good little climb, well marked paths and well maintained. Great views from the top but you share with a lot of people. Best time to go is early in the morning before its gets crazy busy.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Is this trail open now? Is there a lot of snow on the ground? Planning to be in Canmore early Fri afternoon. Someone mentioned this hike would take approximately 2 hours if you're in shape. Aiming to do more of a mix of trail running and fast hiking; feasible?
