Saddleback/Fairview Mountain – T3 – Intermediate Hike
Round Trip- 10.6km
Elevation gain -1014m
You will see Lake Louise from a startling perspective! Looking down from 1000m above. This is a steep hike to a great view. We will be taking this at a Slow and Steady pace but A WORD OF CAUTION “this is not a beginner hike” or a “ first hike of the year”.
We are going for the day – it is a long drive there and back but I am not rushing the hike. This much effort deserves time to enjoy the view. If you have somewhere to be DO NOT PUT YOUR NAME ON THIS HIKE. –Thank-you
