  • Trail was very nice, clean, well maintained by Parks Canada. Big parking lot to accommodate lots of vehicles. Views were great! I highly recommend this place!  more »
  • We did this 4km trail with our 12 y.o. The weather was very nice, very sunny and hot, 26 degrees. No shade during the walk so it was very hot. Our daughter did not enjoy this trail.  more »
  • This outlandish natural geological formation exposing the earth’s mantle distinguished itself from the rest of the mountain ranges surrounding it. A very easy trail if you’re just exploring its unique features. Rustic is a standout. Few vegetation at its base. Water partly springing from the melting ice above. There is no trail mark for ascent to those who dare to climb its plateau. It is daunting to brave the terrain and navigate it yourself.
  • Breathtaking. Surreal beauty. Must be seen. Awe inspiring. Incredible. Other-worldly. One of the wonders of the world. Needs to be on everyone's bucket list.
