Heart Mtn. was my 7 th summit of my life. Since 1993 have been up it about 6 or 8 times, usually a mid week leg workout, have been up to the summit and back to the roadside parking in less than 1.5 hours.

This was the first mountain we hiked/scrambled in the Rockies, such a beautiful place.

This is another go-to scramble for Calgarians. The first summit is easily done all year, but you'll need snow shoes to do the circuit in winter or early spring/late fall.

About 2 1/2 hours to the top on this extremely windy day, some snow and ice on the route. The views are just fantastic!

Did the horseshoe with Ayla. Now I really know where Grant Macewen Peak is!
On the horseshoe just past GM Peak, the north-facing hill still has a sizeable snowdrift on it. All the hikers had fun on the glissade.
If you want to do the loop, I recommend that you park at the Quaite Trail. You'll hike the same distance, but the flat-land part will be nicer.

On the route up the main Heart, maybe half of the trail is covered with snowdrifts, so occasionally I had to take the time for route-finding. On the other hand, the snow was easier to walk on than scree.
As a bonus, with a lot of the "easier" steps buried, I scrambled a lot of the missing trail options. I enjoyed the hands-on.
I got to the second summit of the horsehoe ridge, when I ran out of time. Because this was my first time here, and I was solo, I decided to go back rather than explore. But stumbling down the scree on the main route wasn't fun -- I should have continued around the horseshoe.
The funniest thing was that I always thought that the Heart was the horseshoe loop, so the north side of the Heart must be Grant MacEwan. Boy, was I wrong!

Be sure to look up "Grant MacEwan Peak", here in SummitPost.

Convinced my son to leave the computer and join me for a short scramble. He enjoyed the short climbing sections. Could not do the whole traverse due to time. But a good December 2nd outing.

Date Climbed: Sep 27, 2003
The highest point beyond Heart Mountain is now named Mount MacEwan, so I guess this counts as bagging dual summits (barely)!

I never was much interested in climbing this mountain...and now I've done it twice! Good fun in a little peak, the full traverse is recommended.

Heart Mountain was a nice scramble for late in the season. Great views from the summit, including a nice lake to the southeast.

Great little summit just outside of Calgary, AB. It's a little mountain w/ a big "heart." Fun scramble w/ great views.

I have done this scramble about a dozen times now, in every season of the year. It's really fun and being so close to Calgary/Canmore, everyone should do it! Good one to introduce new people to scrambling. It seems to stay fairly clear of snow the whole year due to chinooks.
