Pidgeon Mountain
A short hike to a grassy summit.

The Pidgeon Mountain trail gains 990m to the summit of a mountain overlooking the Bow Valley.
It's a 7.7km trail, but not near as easy as that makes it sound.
The first ~5km are along the powerline trail towards Skogan Pass, gaining only minimal elevation over the whole length.
When you turn off at a cairned trail, you then gain almost the entire elevation in the last 2km grunt.
It's merely a hike, on unofficial, but decent trail, but it's an enjoyable mountain, and the view is decent.

I say this mostly from the photos of others, because as we crested the summit ridge, a rainstorm blew in.
We reached the summit quickly and started to head back down, only to have the storm pass by shortly after we began our descent.
