This is an update of my 2016 article. Since then Friends of Kananaskis Country volunteers have brushed-out more kilometres of trail and even created a completely new one. This allows me to suggest more loops for snowshoers to enjoy from the easy 3.8 km South Sawmill Loop to a demanding 10.8 km Sawmill North Tour.
The Smith-Dorrien area with its ample snowpack has some of the best snowshoe trails in Kananaskis Country with something for everyone. Here I am featuring the Chester Sawmill Snowshoe Trails, suggesting four loops varying from the popular 5.1 km Sawmill Loop to a 13.3 km Grand Tour.
The Smith-Dorrien ski trails are in jeopardy. The latest demotion has been the removal of all signs. We want to know what you think of this?
