Started 5:00 PM on a sunny calm Friday evening with a group led by Tim of the Meetup Group. The parking lot at Cougar Creek at Elkrun Blvd & Benchlands Tr is the trail head.The only flat part of this hike is the walk along the Creek after that it is a steady climb for the next 2 + hours. Views of Canmore break give plenty of excuses to stop to catch your breath.There was never a tea house built only the abandoned platform remains. The total elevation 880 M. Distance 8.8 km return. Time 2.5 hrs up. Round trip 4hrs.
