A steep hike with a nice view of the open prairies. The cement plant at Exshaw is directly below the trail head, which is an ugly and noisy thing to experience, but you quickly move away from the noise and the view looks away from it. In some ways it is a nice reminder of how humanity has ultimately scarred nature.

NTS Map: 082O03

Elevation Gain: 603 m (466 ft).

Park across the street from the eastern cement plant in Exshaw and hike the ridge to the east of the valley away from the plant.

Steep and technical somehow.very rewarding on the top since you get great views from each side of the summit. The summit is a bit wide so in order to get the best out of the scenes you need to walk around. Downside Be careful of the loose rocks all over the place

Very quiet, doesn't seem to be a popular one. Nice view! Downside Many trails options all along the way can be confusing sometimes. Comment We did this easy scramble for our first hike of 2014, this is a great place to start as it's not too long, it's quiet and you still can manage to do some hands on scrambling depending on the trail you choose. It's annoying sometimes with some snow and 2-3 choices of paths very often. Stick to the ridge, on your right when going up, best suggestion I can give you. On my GPS, I got 603 m net elevation in 3.07 km to Door Jamb. We kept going to Loder Peak for 900 m more and a total net elevation of 722 m.
