Death Valley

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.

This trail is an easy, scenic foothills trail. Death Valley Trail is often combined with Windy Point Trail, Foran Grade Trail and Sheep Trails (for 16 km total.) The trail also connects with Ware Creek Trail and 9999 Trail.

  1. As horse use is not permitted on Pine Ridge Trails in the winter, Death Valley is an out-and-back winter equestrian trail.
  2. Fat biking is allowed on Death Valley Trail but not Death Valley Loop.
  3. Death Valley Trail is regularly maintained between Long Prairie and the second Windy Point Junction. The remainder of the trail is on public lands and is not regularly maintained.
