The trail disappears into the creek just after the second creek crossing.
We have seen no reports on the post flood state of the Tom Snow trail north of Bragg Creek, so decided to go take a look.
We had hiked the section between Dawson and the Husky well road previously and found a few big trees across it near the junction with Cox Hill trail, but that was all. But the section up Moose Creek was unlikely to have fared as well, even though the K Country trail report says it’s open, and with no warnings to imply there is anything the the matter with it.

Friends of Kananaskis Country, High Rockies Trail and ESRD are planning an exceptional year of flood and non-flood related trail projects for 2015. Chairman, Derek Ryder, is projecting 45-50 volunteer trail days, 30% more than last year. They are, of course, looking for volunteers. You don’t have to be a pick-axe wielding strongman — volunteers are needed for many levels of activity, from reporting on trail conditions to digging drainage ditches. Some of the tasks from least to most strenuous are:
- Litter pickup, maintaining culverts and ditches, hand pruning and disposal, and trail condition reporting.
- Small drainage ditching and deadfall removal with hand tools, and repair/replace signage.
- Trail surfacing, bridge repair, digging/clearing drainage ditches, and large deadfall removal.
