Bow Valley Wildland

Considered part of Kananaskis Country, the Bow Valley Wildland Provincial Park straddles the Town of Canmore on all sides between the eastern edge of Banff National Park and the beginning of the foothills to the near Exshaw. Most of the peaks in this region can be scrambled and can be easily accessed from the local system of highways and the Spray Lakes Trail.
