Hike


 

Olympic Summit

Mount Allan is probably one of the closest you can get to a scramble and still call it a hike! I've done this one twice now - and loved it both times. Awesome views and a two-summit day make this one very highly recommended. On the way up Mount Allan you summit Olympic Summit, which is kind of a fail since it's only a minor bump. Oh well. I'll take easy summits any time I can! :)

Canadian Mount Everest Expedition Trail

This ill-named hike (it's named after a Canadian Mount Everest climbing team but I find it confusing) is short and sweet. Located right between the Upper and Lower Kananaskis lakes, it even has some decent (slightly treed) views from the top. The real reason to do it is either with little kids just getting started in hiking or to take pictures of flowers - there are many along the route.
