Little Lougheed Peak is a small outlier between Mt Lougheed and The Wind Tower. The trail head is the same as for the hike up Spencer Creek. Please check out the link for all information on my Spencer Creek Hike post. http://willski.ca/spencer-creek-hike/
Re-visited this peak and went up the direct normal route. From Spencer Creek trail head go past the springs to the new Highline Trail. Turn left and follow for 50 m to cairn follow trail. Keep right at first rock pile. Trail is visible on and off most of the way to the summit. Return the same way. Or come down the first drainage from the summit to meet the trail going along Spencer Creek. Lot’s of loose rock but can stay mostly on grass further down on the right. It is a tad shorter.
After attaining the ridge it is easy to see the route ahead.
Breaking through the trees with the summit in sight. Take the far left it was a little shorter.
Great views on a great day
