Assuming the weather is favourable and the snow has cleared enough, looking to leave after work on Friday and start scrambling Sparrowhawk. We'll scramble 1/2 or 2/3 of the way up, camp, and continue on in the early morning for an awesome sunrise! Scramble down for a before noon return. Speed demons need not apply. I fear I may move at too slow a pace for those folk. You'll need an AB Parks backcountry camping permit to do this and you'll need to prove you've purchased one before we head out. Distance: 10 km round trip, Gain: ~1400 m Easy/Moderate scramble Sparrowhawk-near-Canmore-AB-11160
Required Items to Bring:
Tent, poles, bear spray, helmet, sleeping bag, warm clothing (layers/rain gear)

Recommended Items to Bring:
Micro-spikes, gaiters, GPS

How to Get There:
Event Directions:   From Canmore follow the signs to the Canmore Nordic Centre, up the hill. From the Nordic Centre turn off, reset your odometer to 0 and travel 22.7km along the Smith-Dorrien/Spray Lakes gravel road and park in the Sparrowhawk day-use area on the right. The trailhead is just across the road from the parking lot. You will see a well-trod trail (just north of the creek) leading uphill into the forest, though there is no "official" trailhead or signage for this hike.  

Cancellation/Partial Attendance:
Please review our participant responsibility guidelines!

*Cancellation Policy*: If a participant is unable to attend a paid course or trip, there will be no refund unless the participant finds a suitable replacement that is acceptable to the trip coordinator. It will then be the participant's responsibility to recover funds from the replacement. If the coordinator cancels an event, participants get a refund (less any non- recoverable costs).
