Trail Maps

Updated: June 21, 2018 | Print Report

Due to seasonal snow melt, rivers and streams are experiencing higher flows; exercise caution around moving water.  The past couple days have brought hot and dry weather which has allowed trails to dry out. Rain is in the forecast for the next couple days, trails may become wet and muddy; snow can be expected at higher elevations.

 Notes:

  1. Be wildlife aware! Bears are out, carrying bear spray is highly recommended. See the Wildlife Safety page for more information. 
  2. Ticks are out for the season. Wearing a hat, plus covering up with long-sleeved shirts and long pants while recreating in grassy or wooded areas is recommended. Check for ticks once you are off the trail. Further information on how to avoid and remove ticks can be found on the MyHealth.Alberta website.
  3. Caution is advised for natural hazards such as downed trees and other natural hazards.
