A short guide to the path of The Great Trail through Kananaskis Country with lots of links to maps, and to Trailfinder information screens where you will find more links. Most sections are described in Gillean Daffern’s Kananaskis Country Trail Guides.

We walked the well-packed section of the High Rockies Trail between Driftwood day-use area and West Wind Pass trail to the accompaniment of yipping sled dogs running on the other side of the reservoir.
