The Fullerton Loop takes from one to two hours to complete and is approximately 6.5 kilometers in length. The trail begins at the parking lot of Bill Allen Pond, which has great picnic facilities for a meal when you are finished your walk. Begin by following the Elbow Trail, which leads to the Fullerton Loop path, clearly marked to the left after about one kilometer.
Take the high road or the low road
There are two ways to complete the loop - to the left or to the right. Following the trail to the left will take you to a steep climbing section first. Keeping to the right will take you on a gradual rise to the half-way point, and finishes with you navigating the steep part going downhill. Along the way you will experience wonderful viewpoints on the ridgeline as Mounts Glasgow and Cornwall looms to the west. The Elbow Ranger Station, Moose Mountain and the Elbow River Valley are also attractions on this stop.
