Rummel is a beautiful lake in a tranquil setting. It is similar to Chester Lake but not as busy. Great views of Spray Lake along the way. Please note that there will most likely be snow on the trail, always a good move at this time of the year to bring microspikes.

If you're not sure about a hike, feel free to contact the coordinator and remember to always hike within your ability in order to be able to keep up with the group. If you have not hiked before or recently hiked with 500M+, this hike is not for you.

Please note that if weather changes to "bad" that this event will get cancelled

We are out to enjoy the day-return time may vary-pls do not be in a rush to return to Calgary.

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