Hike to Mount Lipsett / Kananaskis Country / Highway 40 - Postponed!



Description:  The highest of three summits, on what could technically be called the western outlier of Mist Mountain, is accessed by an old coal exploration road and a trail, which make the going easy but very long via the interminable southeast ridge.  Nevertheless, this is a popular trail, not least because the array of summer flowers are amazing.
