This is an intermediate to advanced hike with very hilly and rolling sections of terrain. One of the most challenging parts of this hike are three consecutive hills, known as the 3 Sisters.

Great views along the escarpment, including towards the end of the hike, walking along the top of a ski resort, which has a fantastic view of the valley. Totally worth it.
