Without my alarm going off at 2 am I would have not been able to take in the alpine glow out in Kananaski Country.
I organized this hike with Hike365 to bring a rad group of hiker girls together to enjoy the first organized hike of the season!
The Reads Tower trailhead is located across the road from the Sparrow Hawk Parking Lot. The ascent is pretty aggressive with an elevation gain of 910m. We stopped at the ridge (636m) to take in the alpine glow and enjoy some morning mountain meditation. After the ridge the trail becomes more of a scramble with quite a bit of scree! Despite the difficult ascent the hike was quite enjoyable due to the breathtaking views.
