We have some great ridge hikes in our backyard at Vagabond Lodge. The gondola at Kicking Horse Resort does most of the grunt work.
This trail is seldom used and is not on any maps but it is outstanding. Overall it is about a 2 hour loop from the top of the gondola with some great views and if you are lucky maybe a sighting of goats.
As the snow in higher elevation has finally melted for the most part, this is my favourite time for hiking.
Ken along with his wife Lori are the owners and operators of Vagabond Lodge at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.
