Time: 3-4 hours
Distance: 13 km round-trip

Summary: The hiking trail takes you up to the Kananaskis Fire Lookout and is a fairly easy affair. A wide track, it gains elevation ever so slowly. Deep in the trees most of the way, there is nary a view until the goal is reached. Once at the top, a bald patch on an otherwise heavily forested hill, all around one is rewarded with amazing vistas – a sea of trees, rolling ridges, many tall barren peaks, wide valleys and large lakes tinged a lovely blue/green. Gorgeous!

Kananaskis Conservation Pass: Day pass: 15 dollars, Yearly Pass: 90 dollars. Purchase it HERE.
