Little Elbow

A Kananaskis Conservation Pass is required to park your vehicle in Kananaskis and the Bow Valley.
Ice Safety: Alberta Parks does not monitor ice conditions; learn how to assess them for yourself at the Canadian Red Cross.

Little Elbow Trail is half of the popular Elbow Loop. The trail is an old fireroad that follows west and south along the Little Elbow River over Tombstone Pass to Tombstone Backcountry Campground. There are views of mounts Romulus, Remus, Glasgow and Tombstone. The trailhead is located at the very west end of the Equestrian Campground.
