Windy Viewpoint

A Kananaskis Conservation Pass is required to park your vehicle in Kananaskis and the Bow Valley.

The trail starts at the south end of the parking lot and follows the wide trail into the trees. After dipping down to Pigeon Creek, the trail meanders through the forest, crossing three bridges, until it ascends an old fire road. After steady elevation gain the road ends at a stunning alpine meadow with extraordinary views. Note that the route on “Wind Ridge” is not maintained.

Please note that the West Wind Valley and Wind Ridge are closed annually Dec 1 - Jun 15 to protect critical winter range habitat for ungulates. Windy Viewpoint trail is closed annually May 1 - Jun 15.
