New construction is in full swing along the old haul road that allowed access to the start of Quebexican and to Middle Sister via Stewart Creek. As you can see from Iain Ramsey’s photo there’s heavy equipment working and a “no access” notice. While you can probably walk the road safely Sundays and holidays, during busier times it might be best to use the new start to Quebexican used by mountain bikers and cut across to the haul road beyond the construction.
Currently the route is not that obvious when coming from the Canmore direction. I will try to describe it. Head up Three Sisters Parkway to the traffic circle and take the third exit up Stewart Creek Rise. On the left is an open gravel area. You can probably park here. Follow the gravel uphill, bearing slightly left behind the houses and you will find yourself on an old gravel road. Follow it down to where it flattens out in about 400 m. Looking for bike tracks and pink flagging heading up right to an old grassed road and the green eco-barrier at the edge of the construction. Gain a grassed road and head up it to where a line if stones bears right. Cross another grassed road. By now the bike tracks are more obvious and lead on to Quebexican. The route is now marked with pink flagging.
Where the route joins Quebexican is very close to the northeast corner of the new construction, the boundary of which is marked by a green protective eco-barrier. To get to the old haul road and Stewart Creek, follow the east boundary in the trees and drop down onto the road.
Of course this will all change when they open up new phases of construction to the north and to the east. Hopefully not for a couple of years.
