It's the time of the year when the temperature is getting much cooler so a hike with lower elevation is maybe what you're lookiing for. This is a lovely trail that climbs & swoops through a beautiful foothills setting where one can reach satisfying viewpoints that provide vistas of the Elbow Valley. Please note that there will be some steep parts & that the group will be walking at a "regular pace" not "super fast pace" so that we can enjoy the hike. If the group feels energetic & wishes to do so at the very end of the hike , we can add a few more KM's to the hike by doing a slight detour & also hiking the Diamond "T" loop(an additional 4.3KM loop + 125M elevation gain) . Under "comments" if you think you might be interested in doing Diamond "T" Loop please advise.
Please note that the "duration time" is approximate, always expect the unexpected & come prepared.
