Kananaskis Valley Trail Report

Print Report

Updated: June 22, 2017

Trails are mostly dry with occasional wet and muddy patches. Please give wet trails time to dry to prevent tread damage. Trails that involve river crossings are not recommended at this time as the water levels are still high and potentially dangerous. Although most of the snow in the alpine is gone, lingering snow patches may still exist on north aspects. 

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.
  3. Caution is advised for natural hazards such as downed trees and other natural hazards

Closures:

  1. Construction Closure - Galatea Creek Trail closed until further notice.
  2. Maintenance Closure - Kovach Pond Day Use Area
