There's not much to "report" on the easy and quick Ironstone Lookout / Willoughby Peak bike 'n hike other than to say you should probably combine it with another lowly ridge hike in the Crowsnest Pass area if you're going to bother driving all the way down from Calgary or even further. This is a very quick objective, especially if you use a bike for the approach, or optimally the entire trip.
