Very easy accessible Trails short distance from Calgary. Great day hikes or multi day Trails. Kananaski village has a store on the right just of the parking lot. In high season it's recommend to book spots ahead.

We drove south from Calgary to Waterton National Park on Hwy. 1 but decided to return north on the parallel route through the Kananaskis Valley. So glad we did this. The 50 interconnected provincial parks and recreation areas hide well any buildings, etc. This scenic landscape in the foothills of the Rockies is all but pristine (we didn't mind the... More

Kananaskis Valley is so close to Calgary, its our favorite playground in Winter or Summer, we call it K Country. Accessible via Hwy 1, turn off at Stoney Nakoda on to Hwy 40 or during the summer months head down to Longview (Hwy 22 Cowboy Trail) and come in from the South. Plenty of outdoor stuff to do but the... More

While there are significantly fewer options for things to see and do in Kananaskis Country in the winter, there are still lots of things to entertain. Foremost is the Nakiska Ski Resort which offers great family skiing so close to Calgary. A stop in Kananaskis Village is a must. You can spend a little or a lot for a bite... More

There are just too many great to do and say about this piece of heaven in nature. The rivers are amazing for wildlife viewing. Fishing at its best. Hiking that couldn't be more scenic on endless more les of marked trails. The best part of Alberta.

Loved our drive through Kananaskis Valley. Beautiful mountains but not as crazy busy as Banff or Jasper. Just wish we had more time to explore the hiking trails!

For most, the Kananaskis Valley is a scenic place to drive through. It is, but is is so much more. There are a few commercial facilities, like those around Kananaskis Village and Nakiska ski resort, with a sprinkling of shops, restaurants and hotels. Beyond this area, however, are many campgrounds, picnic areas and pull-asides. And for hiking enthusiasts, there are... More

Take your time to enjoy nature at the foothills of the Rockies. Lots of different places to stop and see something totally different from just a few Kms back

Beautiful drive along the valley floor. As this is not a wide valley floor it gives a more feeling as if you are in the alps. Lots fo wildlife, viewing spots along the route. We took the Spray lakes gravel road into Canmore and this was a disappointment. Gravel of course sucks and it was not as scenic as the... More
