This hike is a favourite among the locals! We’ll hike the famous Powderface ridge line, and get stunning views of the Elbow River Valley, as well as some incredible views of the Nihahi Ridge, Moose Mountain, and if the skies are clear, a view of the city of Calgary.  This hike is sure to be full of wildflowers and subalpine vegetation, and is the ideal location for a moderate hike in early summer.  As we descend to the west, we’ll link up with a vehicle placed further ahead and make a loop of the trip.
