Razors Edge

A Kananaskis Conservation Pass is required to park your vehicle in Kananaskis and the Bow Valley.

Razors Edge trail is accessed on Quaite Valley Trail from the Heart Creek trailhead on the north end and from Prairieview Trail on the south end. Razors Edge travels through Spruce and Pine forest at both ends before opening up along the ridge in the middle and lower sections providing spectacular views along the escarpment overlooking Bow Valley Park to the east and mountain vistas west toward Canmore. This 6km trail provides challenging terrain with technical features that is best travelled in a counter-clockwise direction for Mountain Bikers.


If choosing to hike this trail, exercise extreme caution and be aware that bikers may be traveling at high speed on downhill sections.
