Elbow-Sheep Wildland

Kananaskis Country

The Elbow-Sheep Wildland Provincial Park includes most of the frontrange mountains to the east of Highway 40 between Kananaskis and Calgary, beginning near Barrier Lake in the north to a little beyond Highwood Pass in the south. Like other frontrange areas along the eastern edge of the Canadian Rockies, this region traditionally doesn't receive a ton of snow, making it good destination for shoulder season (or even winter) trips.
