by Gillean Daffern

Kananaskis Country is Alberta’s most popular recreation area, covering over 4000 square hectares of the Canadian Rockies south and east of Banff National Park. The country is spectacular: mountains, forests, lakes, glaciers, canyons. Its diverse topography is reflected in the varied nature of the walks, over 60 described, which include all the interpretive trails, a selection of other short walks, plus five in the town of Canmore itself. Whatever your choice, all trails are well marked and require no expertise on the part of the walker.

Gillean Daffern needs no introduction. Author of the hugely popular Kananaskis Country Trail Guide, she has produced a series of factual, informative guides for those who wish to explore the delights of Kananaskas Country.
