Ascent Trip Report

Wanted to get out and stretch the legs a bit. Parked off of South Bow Road at the Hamilton trail head. Ended up doing this peak twice back to back. Walked to summit, then jogged back down to parking lot. Was feeling good so jogged back to the summit. I don't normally trail run but am trying to incorporate it in these short local heights for a better workout. Enjoyed the surprisingly good views from the couple of lookouts. Then cooled down by walking back to parking lot. Well maintained trail, some good views, and less than 10 minutes from home!
