Itinerary:
Distance: 6km Round Trip
Elevation Gain: 900m
Pace: Slow & Relaxed

Please Note: Although we will be going at a slower pace(gaining about 250m/hr), this is not an event for beginners and you must be comfortable with difficult hiking/easy scrambling on loose rock, snow and ice.

There are numerous summits to Mount Rundle, each varying in elevation and technical difficulty. This trail rises at a moderate incline and clears the treeline quickly. The trail then becomes rockier in terrain which will then give way to a more gentle sloped meadowed area. From there on we will make our way up the moderate angled scree towards the first summit, break for snack/lunch then return the same way. The summit can be very windy and we may encounter some snow on the trail. Great views of Canmore, Ha Ling and Assiniboine on a clear day.
