Although an advisory is in place for this area, bears can be encountered anywhere in the Kananaskis Region at any time. To avoid a surprise encounter with a bear:
Please report all bear sightings immediately to 403-591-7755.
The road construction is located directly above the Grassi Lakes and the climbing area. To reduce the rock hazard to climbers and hikers, Alberta Parks will close these areas. There will be substantial traffic delays from the bottom of the Spray Lakes Road to the top of Whiteman’s Gap. Alberta Parks encourages users to access their desired destination in the Spray Valley via Hwy 40 through Peter Lougheed Provincial Park.
Visitors looking for alternatives to Grassi Lakes hiking and climbing opportunities can call the Kananaskis Information Line at 1-403-678-0760 or stop at a Kananaskis Information Centre such as Barrier Lake, Bow Valley or Peter Lougheed.
