Elbow-Sheep Wildland

The Elbow-Sheep Wildland Provincial Park includes most of the front range 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 front range areas along the eastern edge of the Canadian Rockies, this region traditionally doesn't receive a ton of snow, making it a good destination for shoulder season (or even winter) trips.
