Burstall Pass hike | Kananaskis Alberta

Burstall Pass is a must do hike, especially if you do it during the fall when the larch trees begin to change colour. I promise you will not be disappointed.  The first 3 km are on an old logging road, so not too exciting. But keep your eyes open for moose in the swamp to your right. Once you reach to the bike stand, the path takes off through the trees. After a bit...

Moraine Lake… Banff’s gift to the world. One of the most spectacular lake on earth, its unique blue colour is second to none. The colour is because of the refraction of light off the rock flour deposited in the lake year round. The view from the rock pile is one of the most photographed places in Canada. And with a view like that it is no surprise.  The...

North Buller Pass This trail is beautiful!  The path begins at a wooden bridge directly across the road from the Buller Mountain Day Use Area. The first part of the trail ambles through a thick moss covered forest at a nice flat incline.  We were passed by three guys on mountain bikes heading out to tackle the intersecting Trans- Canada Trail. At about 1 Km in to...

Compression Cirque – The Backside of Compression Ridge. We were feeling a little cheeky today.   We wanted to do a hike off the beaten path, to some place the world had not found yet! (Or at least had not mapped!)  That’s when we decided to try a lesser known section in Kananaskis along the Powderface Trail.  We had driven about halfway up the Powderface Trail when...
