So, where are the best larches in Kananaskis Country. There are many old favourites — Burstal Pass, Pocaterra Ridge, Chester Lake — but there are many others. Here is our selection of some of the best larch hikes.
Arethusa Cirque – much better than neighbouring Ptarmigan Cirque and only a 5 km round trip.
Rummel Lake – likely to be less crowded than Chester Lake. Has a fine display of larches.
Tryst Lake — the lake may have drained away but the larches here are spectacular.
South Mist Hills — these hills at the south end of Mist Ridge are a worthy objective, though little more strenuous than the previous hikes.
