Don't be deceived by the 'hills' label - this would be a mountain rather than a 'hill' by UK standards. Amazing views from the top down onto Maligne lake and the surrounding mountains. The start/end of the hike is on a road so not very...More

Wow, what an amazingly breathtaking place it is. The hike uphill, which isn't all too easy, took us about 2 1/2 hours. But can easily be done in less time. The difficulty makes it a rather less travelled place, which only adds to its beauty....More

Hiking along fireroads gets pretty tedious, and a fire road makes up the majority of this trail; however, it's still a good workout and the views at the top are worth it! The mini scramble to the upper viewpoints are fun!

As we were experiencing smokey conditions because of the fires elsewhere we arrived to clear skies and a lovely coloured lake to get some great photos [a little lucky]

This hike starts at the parking lot and goes on top of the Bald hills overlooking Maligne lake. On a sunny day the water in Maligne lake is a beautiful blue. This makes for some great pictures. Take the road to the top- fairly easy...More
