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


    • Bears, Elk and other Wildlife in the region are active. Practice wildlife safety. Make sure you're making noise on the trail, paying close attention to your surroundings, and carry bear spray and know how to use it.
    • Caution is advised for natural hazards such as downed trees, washouts and missing bridges. Route-finding may be necessary. Please report any downed trees on the trails.
    • Be sure not to overestimate your ability when planning your trip: Humility can be a life saver. Plan for rapidly changing conditions and bring extra socks.
