This map covers some of the most popular terrain for hikers and
mountain bikers in Kananaskis Country - Bow Valley Provincial Park, the
Canmore area, the Smith-Dorrien/Spray Lakes area south to Mount Shark
trailhead, Barrier Lake, and the Kananaskis Village area from Ribbon
Creek south to Galatea Lakes trailhead.
Updated trails on this sixth edition include those on both sides of
the Bow Valley, including the Highline Trail and its connectors on the
south side of Highway 1, and the Benchlands trails on the north side of
Highway 1. The new snowshoe trails in the Ribbon Creek area have also
been added. And for those of you who have been asking, the relief
shading is back, and the map is printed on waterproof material.
Other classic trails covered on this map include Grassi
Lakes, Yamnuska, Ha Ling, Lady Macdonald, Barrier Lake Lookout, Mt.
Allen via Centennial Ridge (the highest maintained trail in the Canadian
Rockies), Ribbon Falls and Ribbon Lake, Lillian and Galatea lakes,
Karst Spring and Buller Pass.
