Elk Pass Snowshoe Trail

This trail starts at the far end of the parking lot at Elk Pass Day Use Area. It climbs under the powerline before crossing the Elk Pass Cross-Country Ski Trail on the first steep hill. It parallels the ski trail near the top then joins the ski trail for the next downhill. The trail then cuts into the valley bottom at the second Fox Creek Trail junction for the most picturesque portion of the route. The trail joins Hydroline Trail at the next junction and then parallels this trail to Elk Pass. You can continue into British Columbia and Elk Lakes Provincial Park (BC Parks). Elk Lakes headquarters and the Alpine Club of Canada's Elk Lakes Cabin (alpineclubofcanada.ca/facility/elklakes.html) are located 4.3 km from the Alberta/BC border. Some portions of this trail cross or share ski trails. Where this trail crosses or shares ski trails, snowshoers are required to stay to the edge of the trail and yield to oncoming skiers.

Note:

Dogs are NOT permitted on this snowshoe trail.
