+++Drivers are needed+++:

It's great to live in Calgary! You don't have to travel far to get a quick hike in.

Moose Mountain fire lookout. It provides a very scenic view on a clear day, whereby the foursome can be seen to the southwest:Banded Peak, Outlaw Peak, Mt. Cornwall and Mt. Glasgow. You'll have many "digital moments". Moose Mountain is located halfway between the prairies and the first range of the Rocky Mountains.

We are planning to have lunch at the summit(where the fire lookout is). Hopefully the sun will be out and the wind light.

~~~~~If you live in the NW, you might want to meet us directly at the trailhead; quicker for you than meeting us at the SW carpool.~~~~~~

PACE: Relaxed slower pace when doing the uphill portions and moderate for the balance. If you are a speed demon please sign up for another hike.

Note that COC event coordinators are volunteers and are NOT trained guides. All participants are responsible for their OWN safety and equipment.


Required Items to Bring:
