A Kananaskis Conservation Pass is required to park your vehicle in Kananaskis and the Bow Valley.
Alberta Environment and Parks, in partnership with Bragg Creek Trails, is developing a new trails plan for the West Bragg Creek area.
Visit www.Alberta.ca/WBCtrails for more information.

    Notes:

    • Dogs must be on-leash within the Provincial Recreation Area
    • The georeferenced maps at right can be downloaded and used on Apps such as Avenza to follow your position while on trail.
    • There is now a free public cellular hotspot immediately south of the Trails Centre at the West Bragg Creek Parking Lot, which enables visitors to make emergency and non-emergency calls.
    • The All Season Trails system was created in partnership with the Government of Alberta and the Greater Bragg Creek Trails Association (GBCTA), recently rebranded as Bragg Creek Trails. Please visit the Bragg Creek Trails website to learn more.
    • Practice wildlife safety. Travel in groups, make noise on the trail, and keep pets on leash. Carrying bear spray and knowing how to use it is highly recommended, even in winter.
    • It's tick season! Make sure to check you and your pets when you get home. For best protection, use a bug repellent with DEET.
    • 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.
