What a great hike. This is a new one or at least a new version. You could always scramble up to the top of Terminator but now there is a great trail to follow. Terminator Peak is the first peak to the south of the top of Kicking Horse and is one of my favourite hikes in the winter. But now it is one of my favourite summer hikes too. The resort has done an amazing job of building this trail with mostly rock steps which must have been quite a chore. From the top of the gondola to the top of Terminator Peak, you can do it in about 30 minutes and the views are outstanding in all directions. There is one section that is quite narrow if you have vertigo. The trail also is part of the Via Ferrata(next on my list) which is a new addition to the resort this summer. You get a great view of the suspension bridge which is the first part of the Via Ferrata. You will notice that in the video. Short hike but you get a big bang for your buck. Well worth it.
