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. The evenings are starting to get shorter, so the end of the loop will require some good twilight vision or the use of a headlamp to be able to see the black cows that are sometimes near the trail. :D

You are welcome to bring your dog if they are used to hiking at a moderate, steady pace with a group and can respect the personal space of cattle, other dogs and people.

We will be hiking the loop clockwise, therefore going UP the steep side and down the more moderate section. At this time hiking footwear with good tread should suffice, but be prepared to pack icers / traction devices if Calgary rain showers fall as snow or mixed precipitation in the foothills. The event will go ahead as planned unless there is a heavy rainfall warning for the area, dangerous road conditions or cold weather temperatures below -25c (including wind chill).


Required Items to Bring:
hiking boots / trail shoes with good tread
water
bear spray
headlamp and spare batteries
appropriate clothing
Kananaskis Conservation Pass

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.
