Early season easy scrambling in the front ranges.

Door Jamb is an easy scramble and a short drive from Calgary.

8.2km / 800 m

Idea is to follow the trail to Door Jamb that allows for both scramble and hiking options; then keep up to Loder Peak and continue on with a descend to Jura Creek and completing the loop back to the parking lot via Jura Creek trail.
