Group Size Limits & Trails

Often the best part about experiencing Kananaskis Country is sharing it with a group of friends and family. We have group size limits on some of our most popular and sensitive trails to ensure large groups do not negatively impact the trails, wildlife or the enjoyment of other users.

For more information about trail group size limits, please contact the Guiding/Instructing Permits Coordinator.
