FOSSIL FALLS
Distance 18.2 km return, height gain 280 m, moderate
Although K Country's premier waterfall lies close to the beaten track, few people have time to make it a side trip. Why not consider it a day trip from the trailhead? A paddle 'n' hike works even better.
Start: Kananaskis Lakes Trail (road) at Upper Lake parking lots. Via #66 Upper Kananaskis Lake circuit.
Difficulty: Good trail to Hidden Lake, then more steeply up a forested headwall. It is then a bushwhack up and across to the foot of the falls.
Note: The trail around Hidden Lake has been recently brushed out.

Please refer to the trail description in the guidebook, especially for unofficial, off-trail hikes.
