Penstock Loop Snowshoe

MENU
A Kananaskis Conservation Pass is required to park your vehicle in Kananaskis and the Bow Valley.
Ice Safety: Alberta Parks does not monitor ice conditions; learn how to assess them for yourself at the Canadian Red Cross.

When this trail was originally built, it traversed alongside its namesake, the Pocaterra Penstock, which has since been upgraded and buried underground. Interesting historical features like the Kent Creek sluiceway and still visible and it provides nice views of the Opal Range.
