Nihahi Creek

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.

This trail follows beside and above the creek behind Nihahi Ridge. When the packed dirt trail exits onto the dry upper creek bed, there is a sharp left downstream. That leads hikers to the Nihahi Creek Canyon with its water-polished rock walls. Hikers can follow the canyon for a kilometre before having to retrace steps.
