Canmore and Area Trail Report

Print Report

Updated: June 23, 2017

Trails are generally dry with wet and muddy patches after the rain events the last two weeks. Please give wet trails time to dry to prevent tread damage. Water levels remain high and potentially dangerous and should be avoided. Although most of the snow in the alpine is gone, lingering snow patches may still exist on north/ east aspects. Bring the appropriate equipment if venturing out be prepared for rapidly changing weather and conditions.

Notes: 

  1. Bears and cougars are active - Carry bear spray, keep dogs on leash, remain observant and observe wildlife safety techniques
  2. Ticks are out and experts recommend wearing light coloured clothing and conducting daily tick checks of you and your pets. For more information on ticks visit Alberta Health.
