UpsideThe trailhead looked nice. DownsideYou cannot hike this in the winter. There are signs posted saying the trails are for cross country skiing and that snowshoeing or hiking will ruin the trail. I came to this page, saw that it said winter hiking, packed up my truck, and went. Signs posted at trailhead, no hiking as it ruins the trail for skiers. Huge waste of time.

UpsideA not too difficult hike that provides access to an active fire lookout providing spectacular views of the area. DownsideThe hike is all uphill all the way CommentThis is a great way to get a panormaic view of the area. The trail to the lookout can be boring so it is best that you start from the pulloff on Highway 40, 8km south of the Kananaskis Lakes Trail intersection. This reduces the hike to 2.5 km one way as opposed to 7 km one way from Boulton Creeek

Upsidefantastic views of kananaskis lakes and area. spotted some whiskey jacks at the top and a ptarmigan on our way back. Downsideonly minor challenge was figuring out we had to park at the boulton creek trading post. Commenttrail starts near the restaurant.
while trail is easy to follow and relatively smooth, it gets a slightly steeper towards the end.

UpsideGreat hike to get you moving, doesn't require a lot of time; all uphill Downsideall up hill :) CommentBit confused at first when trying to find it from the Boulton Creek parking lot, but once I got on the trail it was super easy to follow.
Went out in late september, lots of bear prints in the mud, be bear safe!
