The Eagle Hill trail climbs the foothills of Kananaskis Country to reach a ridge that looks out into the Prairies. It is an easy-to-follow, gradual trail that is the perfect day trip from Sibbald Lake Campground. There are no technical sections on this trail, making it excellent for hikers of various abilities.

Eagle Ridge Trail Description

The Eagle Hill Trail is easy to follow and begins with a large trail sign. There are some makeshift trail signs and flagging tape along the route, however, you shouldn’t have a hard time finding the trail. From the day-use area, walk south from Sibbald Lake, and find Eagle Hill trail. The route gains elevation very gradually and passes many junctions in the first 1.9mi. After passing all the junctions, the route gains the ridge to the lookout point before turning back for the descent.
