Hiking is one of the main activities in the Canadian Rockies that can be enjoyed by everyone. You will find anything between easy, shorter hikes to long day hikes around Canmore and Kananaskis Country.

The town of Canmore has an extensive and well-marked trail system that is suited for the novice. You can take in the surrounding mountain scenery at a leisurely pace and end with a visit to the downtown area and its numerous specialty stores, galleries and coffee shops.

More expert hikers will head out to the back-country where there is an abundance of hiking options with varying difficulty levels. Preparedness and experience is key when hiking in the back-country. Check the daily trail reports, carry bear spray or wildlife deterrents, stock up on extra water and emergency supplies, and ensure your first aid kit is up to date. Safety is your responsibility.
