COVID-19 Updates: Taking steps to return to normal.
Based on these identified conditions and associated infrastructure, environmental, user experience and public safety issues, we are going to have to extend (and initiate) closures of the following backcountry campgrounds up to and including July 5, 2022.
If you are travelling on these trails:
Attention hikers with backcountry campground reservations:
Although an advisory is in place for this area, bears can be encountered anywhere in the Kananaskis Region at any time. To avoid a surprise encounter with a bear:
Please report all bear sightings immediately to 403-591-7755.
- To reduce danger to hikers equestrian users and climbers as contractors work in the area falling trees, moving heavy equipment around and hauling asphalt for paving.
- There is no alternative for safe parking and trail access.
- It is more time and cost effective. The contractor needs to be able to work efficiently without keeping track of the public in the area. Environment and Parks wants to complete the project as efficiently as possible.
Conservation Officers will enforce the area closure under the Provincial Parks Act. Do not cross construction barriers and follow all signage.
Visitors looking for alternatives can call the Kananaskis Information Line at (403) 678-0760 or stop by a Kananaskis Information Centre.
