Kananaskis Country

The Kananaskis Region of Alberta is well known for being one of the more beautiful regions of the country. Discussed here as a loose collection of provincial parks (Elbow-Sheep Wildland to the east, Peter Lougheed to the south, and Spray Valley to the west), this entire region can be reached within a 1-2 hour drive from Calgary and affords incredible access to countless hiking and scrambling objectives year round.

Visit the official website for advisories, trail conditions, maps, access information and other details about the region.
