Peter Lougheed Trail Report

Print Report

Updated: August 25, 2016

Trails are in good condition with some wet/muddy areas

Please note: The Shepherdia (aka buffaloberry) crop is now past the prime stage prompting the removal of the Kananasksis-wide bear warning but bears are actively feeding at valley bottoms as there are still berries to be found. Please ensure that you are carrying bear spray, know how to use it, are aware of your surroundings, making noise, reducing your speed in forested areas and observing all Bear Smart safety techniques. 

Closures:

  1. Bear Closure - Valleyview Trail between Elpoca Day Use and Little Highwood Pass Day Use
  2. Construction Closure - Kananaskis Canyon Interpretive Trail
