For this weekend's hike delight, we'll hike to another lookout! The fire lookout provides fantastic views of the Kananaskis valley and lakes. (a sunny day has been pre-ordered for this special day). We will be taking a lunch break, at the lookout. From the lookout we will go down the backside and complete a loop.

We will be hiking at a RELAXED Pace+(not slowpoke pace), which means going at a slow Pace going up and Moderate pace on flat terrain. If you do not want to stay with the group at this pace, pls find another hike.

PLS remember that hiking in the winter is alot harder then in the summer.
