Expect trails to be variable in condition from packed snow and ice at higher elevations, to dryer conditions at lower elevations and in sun exposed areas. Early season avalanche conditions exist, take care while traveling in the backcountry.

Notes:

  1. Early season snow has started to fall. Check for avalanche information on the Avalanche Canada website. Pack appropriately for changing conditions, including traction devices/hiking poles, and don't forget to dress in layers!
  2. Be wildlife aware! Traveling in groups, making noise on trail, keeping pets on leash and carrying bear spray is highly recommended. See the Wildlife Safety page for more information. 
  3. Caution is advised for natural hazards such as downed trees and snow/ice on trail.

  1. Widowmaker Trail: from Canoe Meadows, at the "Green Tongue" river feature, upstream to Barrier Visitor Information Centre
  2. Paving Project along Highway 40: South of Kananaskis Village to the Junction of Highway 742.
