We will try and maintain a steady pace (slow to moderate), and stay together as a group. This hike is not for slow pokes, nor will we be rushing to the summit.

This hike is quite steep, so please make sure it is within your capabilities. After ascending steeply through the forest with occasional glimpses of the winding Elbow River below, we eventually reach a more gentle open slope for the final few hundred meters to reach the summit. We will chill out at the summit while enjoying beautiful 360-degree views and having a snack.

We may stop for ice-cream / snacks in Bragg Creek on the way home.
