We decided to forego the start from Heart Creek Trailhead and instead drove to the Quaite Valley trailhead which is situated 2.7 kms east of the Lac des Arcs overpass. Its an easy turnoff to the side of the Trans Canada highway with good gravel base to park on.
Spring has arrived in Kananskis! Our day started off with light rainy type snow which ended as quickly as it started. We experienced a few wind gusts, but our day was mainly sunny and very pleasant. The trail up through Quaite Valley is well defined and only minimal snow. The snow was soft and, on the way up, we donned our icers only for the last few kms to the weather station. We kept our icers on most of the way down.
Barrier Fire Lookout was a good pick to get the season started! Thanks all for coming out!
