Foran Grade Trail and Windy Point Ridge (All levels welcome)
Distance 12 Km
Elevation 350 meters
Difficulty T3-OT3 (Easy with one steep section)
Trail Head is 21 km West Turner Valley four way stop just past Sheep River Ranger Station.
Foran Grade Trail is a easy hike through trees and up a ridge. Once we reach Windy Point Ridge the second ridge we will scramble a steep section through the trees for approx. 100meters there is no trail and it has no exposure. Once we obtain Windy Ridge Point we will be rewarded with incredible views of the Sheep River Valley, Blue Rock Mountain, Mount Rose, and Three Point Mountain and on a clear day you can see Calgary . From there we follow the ridge down and loop back to the car.
Recommended gas fare per person $15.00.
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.
