Located on the north side of the town of Canmore is Mount Lady Macdonald. Lady Mac is a big old piece of rock that offers plenty of stunning Rocky Mountain views the whole hike up. Lady Mac is a challenge and really allows the hiker to experience what it’s like hiking in the Canadian Rockies. Because of its convenient location, it is a local favorite and is one of the mountains climbed as part of Canmore’s Triple Crown or 4 peak challenge.
