Ptarmigan Cirque up the Highwood Pass is one of my favorites.
?
Early morning hikes up this trail, I have seen big mountain sheep, herds of moms and "kids" (baby goats) and enjoyed a quick stop at the top for snacks.

A decent climb, the elevation gain is 846 ft (210 metres) over 4.5 km of winding treed trail, opening up to a great open view at the top. Trail extensions: up a scree slope, views in the crater up top (I call it the Moon view), as well as the Interpretive trail, we can take both if the group is up for it.
?
This climb takes about 2.5-3 hours and is rated moderate.

Drive time: approx 90 mins

The trail starts at Sunshine parking lot and meanders through the forest for the first 6 km and then breaks out of the trees with tremendous views the rest of the way. We will stop at the top to have lunch and enjoy the views before heading down. If we are lucky the alpine flowers will be blooming and we may be able to see marmots at the top.

The grassy western escarpment offers the shortest route to a fabulous summit viewpoint. We will be following a well marked trail. Please do not let the short distance deter you, as it will take approximately 2 hours to reach the summit. The sunnier south end is where most of the meadows are and it‘s here that the options present themselves.
