Distance 7.3 km loop, height gain 372 m, moderate
The Mustang Hills (also known as the Rainy Creek Hills) is the group of three hills located ENE of Rainy Summit between Hwy. 66 and the Elbow River. At a summary glance, they appear to be covered in trees, but in reality they harbour meadows offering great views. Within their folds wander the wild horses, perhaps headed for a drink at the pond.
Start: Cobble Flats day-use area. Keep left into the far end parking lot.
Note: Most of the loop is unchanged, however the flood has affected the final 2 km along the Elbow River back to Cobble Flats. In general, the flood has improved this section of trail. You can easily pick your way along the route across sandy silt and dry cobble/sand bars with a few diversions into the forest and a stretch of grassy side slope where a short section of trail has washed away.
Please refer to the trail description in the guidebook, especially for unofficial, off-trail hikes.
