On my way up to T2 looking back at the Eagles Eye Restaurant at the top of Kicking Horse Resort.
One of my favourite hikes in the winter is up to T2 which is the peak to the south edge of Kicking Horse Resort. It is also one of my favourite summer hikes. Last summer they put in a really nice trail for hiking which really makes it accessible to pretty well everyone. The views from the top are outstanding in all directions and it only about 40 minutes or so from the top of the mountain. The gondola does all the work. There are some steps to climb on your way up to the top of the ridge but only for about 15 minutes. I did it for the first time this summer yesterday. Once you get to the top you can keep going on a game trail and eventually make it onto a logging road and end up in Golden. I have never done the whole thing but it is getting popular with the extreme mountain bikers who carry their bikes up the top and then ride down. Not for me..ever. Photos are from yesterday.
