Snowshoe Hare Snowshoe Loop


Distance - 5.44km loop Elevation gain - ~100m? gently rolling
1 hour, 30 min hiking along the loop


The Snowshoe Hare trail is a new snowshoeing loop from the West Bragg Creek trailhead that makes a loop in between the Hostel and Telephone Loops.
As it had not snowed in a while, the trail was packed, and in places, dry, and we simply hiked the loop, and did fine without spikes.
It's a nice loop to hike, and would be a great snowshoe loop when there has been recent snow.
I would particularly recommend the loop for relatively new snowshoers, as it is extremely well-marked with orange placards, and would be good practice for less-clear routes.

Starting down the loop with plenty of signs.

Laurier hikes through an open area.

The frequency of the signs is great, and makes for clear travel.

A sunny area of the trail is completely dry.

A flooded creek was the only really icy area.

Hiking up to the high point of the trail.

Pretty trail through the aspens.

Aspen against the brilliant blue sky.
