Canmore Benchlands signs

Right now, GPSing the trails on the Canmore benchlands for Volume 3 of the Kananaskis Country Trail Guide. When having a drink on Stoney’s patio at Silvertip and feeling remarkably out of place amongst the golfers, we were asked if we were hiking. “Yes”. “Didn’t know there were any trails around here.” “ Yes, must be 100 km of them, or at least it feels that way.”

Haven’t total them up. But, anyway along the way are many signs, mostly of the “No Trespassing “ or “Area Closed” variety. Here is a selection.

    What’s with the Area Closed signs anyhow? Along Montane Traverse there must be one every ten metres!

    Clearly this is why I haven’t hiked around the trails on the bench much. Look at those signs! Can’t wait for the next book to help make sense of the trails there.
