518 m elevation gain
Bike and Hike via Gorge Creek Trail
The King of the foothills! JOHN WOULD BE PROUD!
Mount Ware is a place that straddles the border between being a mountain and a foothill with a front row seat to Bluerock Mountain:). This is one of my favorite places in Kananaskis.
We biked Gorge creek Trail before hiking to the peak following a south ridge mostly off trail. The ascent to the summit is on stable scree but the grade might make some squeamish, especially if the wind is howling as it was today (gusts of 100 km for sure!).
There is great peace to be found at the summit, with a solid carin and ridge. The mountains of Bluerock and Rose capture the view along with All Smoke Mountain and Surveyors Ridge. Little Ware keeps company to the east with the green hills and prairies beyond.
Worth the trip!
