Bull Creek Hills - Hike

Bull Creek Hills ( Hike)

Distance: 10 - 12 km  

Elev. gain: 700 meters

Directions:  Take Highway 541 West from
Longview to the Kananaskis Country entrance sign. We hike from this point rather than Grass Pass.

Hike Description: This is an interesting hike up into the Bull Creek Hills. There are sweeping views of the Highwood Range, Holy Cross Mountain and Mount Head. The alpine wild flowers are in full bloom so should be worth the work. This is not an easy hike but we will be taking  our time, taking plenty of breaks and time to enjoy the views.

Bring bug spray you will need it
Dress appropriately for the weather -
Hiking boots
Hiking poles
Bear Spray
Extra Snacks and/or Packed Lunch
Water
Camera (optional)
Pack garbage out

passenger commuting costs: $20.00 for gas per person and in cash.

Waivers: As per the new
policy for waivers; I will bring the group waiver form with me to both the
Calgary Meetup location and the trailhead. You must sign it before you will be
allowed to go on this hike. You will also be asked to provide the name and
phone number of an emergency contact. You are fully aware that organizers are
not professional guides and you assume all responsibility for your safety and
well-being. You are fully prepared with proper gear and you're physically fit
to do this hike with the group.
