Mist Creek

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.

This trail passes through mixed forest then long meadows. A series of steep short traverses then brings you to Rickert's Pass. From here, there are excellent views of the Sheep, Mist and Highwood valleys.
