Fullerton Loop is an easy hike that provides excellent views of the Elbow Valley and nearby foothills. The plan is to undertake this hike at a relaxed, but moderate pace. We will stop to catch our breath when needed and enjoy the views. Note: This is a evening hike and it will be just starting to getting dark when we finish if overcast. Please consider packing an operational headlamp with you until after Easter. 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.

We will be hiking the loop clockwise, therefore going UP the steep side and down the more moderate section. Please bring icers / foot traction, as there are still a few sections that are still icy due to daily melting / freezing. There is also still a large section of trail on the back half that is still covered by frozen runoff / overflow from some of the hillside springs. The temperature cut off will be -20c (including wind chill).

Required Items to Bring:
hiking boots / trail shoes
Micro spikes/ icers
water
appropriate clothing
Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
hiking poles
hat / toque and or gloves
bear spray

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.
