Description and Tips

The fairly busy, moderately difficult trail takes you quickly up past the tree-line into expansive meadows and amazing views of the surrounding peaks. Bighorn sheep are often grazing. Continue another 1.4 km to Wilcox Ridge to view the Columbia Icefields and Parkway – amazing but be prepared for cold winds at the ridge!
