Description

A straight-forward out-and-back route within easy reach of Calgary (~40 min) with great views.

The 14 km route is well-marked and although fairly sustained ascent (~650 m) to begin with can be completed in around 3-4 hours.

It is also a popular spot for geocaching and it is worthwhile traversing the whole ridge having made the effort to get there.

Parking is roadside and alternatives can be made on the return leg to make the outing into a loop.
