he 41 trail maps from the back of the five volumes of Kananaskis Country Trail Guides are now available for you to view and download to your computer.
Printed out actual size, the map scale is 1:50,000. They can be printed on 11″ x 17″ paper, although some of the maps will need to be scaled down to fit. It is not intended that you try to assemble a mosaic of all the maps, though it would be possible if you have a wide-bed printer—but a lot of work as many of the maps overlap and they are not all exactly the same size.
The trail lines on the map were obtained in various ways: A large number of them are from our own GPS track logs and we consider them accurate. Some are from other people’s track logs that we considered accurate enough to use. Many others are drawn on the maps from Gillean’s notes and are approximate lines. If you notice any that are obviously way out, please let us know and if you can give us an accurate track log we will update the map.
Note that the government topo maps that cover Kananaskis Country come in a mix of imperial and metric. Therefore, the contour intervals vary. Some of our maps have both imperial and metric contours when they span two types of government map. Imperial contours are 100 ft intervals and metric 40 m intervals.
