Eagle Hill is a moderate shoulder-season hike in the Sibbald Lake Day Use Area off Hwy 68. It is an out-and-back hike with moderate elevation gains and views of the Bow River Valley. Our pace will be relaxed but steady (about 3 - 4 km/hr). Fast hikers are welcome but will be expected to wait for the group. This is a great way to get your hiking season started or a great change of scenery for novice hikers who are looking for a transition towards the more intermediate hikes.

There is a carpool available for this event for those who are comfortable riding with others. Please note the time and location. If you wish to meet us at the trailhead, that's great too!
