Description

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

This Alternate Route was the main GDT route to Mt. Assiniboine until the more scenic Wonder Pass route became the main route, relegating this route to Alternate Route status. This route is predominately in the forest, including Assiniboine Pass. Thus, views are limited.

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