Mount Lougheed Amphitheatre Hike

Mount Lougheed Amphitheatre Hike

Distance: 10 - 14 km

Elev. gain: 600- 700 meters

Time required: 5 - 6 hours be prepared for longer we are in the
Canadian Rockies

Difficulty Rating: T4- OT4 Hike  

Directions:
From Canmore drive south along Smith Dorrien. The trail head is on the left side of the road by Spencer Creek 11 km south of the bridge by Goat Pond dam.

Hike Description: I haven't been in this area since the flood so be ready for anything.  If the trail still exists we will follow a path for the first 3 or 4 kilometers and then we will need to do a off trail for a while. Once we break out of the trees we will enter a spectacular amphitheatre. I plan to be moving at a leisurely pace with plenty of short breaks and taking the day to enjoy all the Rockies have to offer.

Recommended gear:
Backpack min 30 litre, sturdy hiking boots, mitts/gloves, toque, gaiters,
hiking poles, sunglasses layered clothing with waterproof shell, headlamp with
extra batteries, food and water.

Suggested 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.

    As I am pretty far down on Wait List, I found another potential hike for Sunday 18th, but will check when back this evg. to see if I got in and then would cancel the other hike, if that's
    "Kosher" , as this one appealed to me more than the other one!
    Let me know!
