Itinerary:
Depending on the weather, looking to do Rimwall Summit. Net gain (~972m), 7 km. Leaving Calgary around 9 am, getting to trailhead around 10:30 and anywhere from 4-7 hours on trail and then back to Calgary (can be persuaded to stop for a bite/drink in Canmore on the way back - this is a long weekend afterall!) This is my first ACC trip as a leader so bear with me! If you're a speed demon, probably best not to come with me. Adequate snack and photo breaks are a given on my trips.
Required Items to Bring:
Bear spray (at least 2 for the group) Snacks, water (1-2L) Hiking boots Adequate layers (light rain gear)

Recommended Items to Bring:
Gaiters Poles Sunscreen
