Scrambling Routes
Mount Inglismaldie rewards the victorious with a fine view of Lake Minnewanka and the Bow Corridor, but the peak doesn’t see many visitors owing to the lack of a good approach trail. As you drive toward Banff from the west, this peak, along with adjacent Mount Girouard to the south, form a balanced and symmetrical backdrop on the eastern horizon. With a good trail, it would be much more popular. Try from late June on. Kane, Scrambles in the Canadian Rockies page 190
