Mist Ridge

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

Mist Ridge Trail is accessed 2 km up Mist Creek Trail. This enjoyable ridge walk makes a great outing when combined with Mist Creek Trail. The picturesque trip provides good views of Mist Mountain and Mount Gibraltar but it makes for a long day. If bad weather arises, options exist to drop off the ridge back to the creek.

Backcountry travel knowledge is essential on this trail as it is backcountry in nature and receives limited maintenance.


Downed trees and other debris could exist on trail.
