Part way up this trail, concrete walls, fenced-off vent shafts and a tailing pile are all that remains of the coal mine at level "C". At the top, a jumble of rock at the base of a dished-in slope, the cirque, are all that remains of a glacier. The tailing pile and the jumbled rock, home to picas, make good viewpoints on this 3.9 km long and 450 m uphill trail which starts in Upper Bankhead parking lot off the Lake Minnewanka Road.
