Terrace Trail is an easy, undulating trail that follows the terraces of Kananaskis River, from Kananaskis Village to the Galatea Creek trail. The trail affords some great views of Fisher Peak and K Country Golf Course. We will be hiking at a moderate pace. Once we reach the Galatea Creek trail, we will cross the river and find a nice spot for lunch before heading back the way we came. Note that there might be a creek crossing, although it should be fairly low at this time of year.

Required Items to Bring:
hiking boots
lunch and snacks (not for sharing)
appropriate clothing
bear spray
Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
hiking poles
bug spray

How to Get There:
Event Directions:Take Trans-Canada Highway (Hwy 1) to Highway 40. Note that there is construction on the bridge over Hwy 1 so allow some time to get through that. Follow Highway 40 south to the turnoff to Kananaskis Village (Mt. Allen Drive). Turn right off Hwy 40, then left onto Centennial Drive, following signs to Kananaskis Village. Turn right onto Terrace Drive and park in the parking lot behind Woody's Pub. We will meet close to the open field right beside the lot.

Carpooling is not permitted.
