Fullerton Loop is an easy hike that provides excellent views (during the day) of the Elbow Valley and nearby foothills. The plan is to undertake this hike at a relaxed, but moderate pace by headlamp. We will stop to catch our breath when needed and enjoy the views by moonlight (if it happens to be out... otherwise it will be by ambient light from Calgary reflecting from the snow.:D) Note: This is a evening hike and it will be dark when we begin. Please ensure you have an operating headlamp with you, as well as some spare batteries. You are welcome to bring your dog if they are used to hiking with a group and can respect other dogs / hiker's personal space. Please consider attaching a flashing light to its collar to avoid anyone stepping or tripping on it. Thanks!

We will be hiking the loop clockwise, therefore going UP the steep side and down the more moderate section. Please bring icers, even if we've had warm weather. There are many shaded sections that don't get enough sun to fully melt. If it's a deep snow night, you might even try a small pair of snowshoes - we'll play it by ear. Temperature cut off will be -20c (including wind chill).

Required Items to Bring:
hiking boots / trail shoes
Micro spikes/ icers
head lamp and spare batteries
water

How to Get There:
Event Directions:Follow the Trans-Canada Highway (Hwy 1) to Highway 22, follow Highway 22 south through Bragg Creek, turning left at the 4-way stop. At the Highway 66 Junction, turn right and follow Highway 66. The parking area is on the right, across from the Allen Bill Day Use area - you'll see the signs after you cross the Elbow River bridge. We will meet in the parking area near the cars at 6 p.m., ready to hike. I'll have a green daypack.

If you are running late, please text before you start driving. If you arrive after we've left, please do not attempt to hike out alone to catch up with us.
