Description

Great Divide Trail - Section C (Kananaskis Lakes to Field) Alternate Route.

This Alternate Route runs along Upper Kananaskis Lake, crosses a creek, goes through meadows, and then climbs up onto the Continental Divide. Following the snowy and icy Continental Divide, the views are awesome. It eventually drops back down to rejoin the main GDT Route.

Please see the resources listed above under Need to Know for up to date detailed descriptions and valuable hiker information.
