One of our favourite early-spring hikes. Carry Ridge, a ruler-straight ridge running SE-NW between Macabee Creek and Ware Creek, is named after Bob Carry who homesteaded on the site of Anchor D in 1912. A trail runs all along the crest to the far north end. Side trails peeling off its west flank onto the west fork trail of Mud Springs Creek allow loops to be made. There are also longer return options.
Start: Hwy. 546 (Sheep River Trail) at the Kananaskis Country boundary sign.
Difficulty: Easy ridge hiking with a short muddy section early on.
Note: See sketch map on page 45 for the various options.
Please refer to the trail description in the guidebook, especially for unofficial, off-trail hikes.
