Drivers will be required, so please indicate if you can drive.

Red Earth Creek Trailhead is 20 km west of Banff on the Trans-Canada Highway. The trail climbs gradually through lodgepole pine forests to the Shadow Lake Trail. The last few kilometres returning to the highway can be exhilarating. This will be a long day.

It is your responsibility to make sure you have acquired all required equipment, clothing, and food for this trip. All outdoor activities involve a certain degree of risk, so it is up to you to be prepared, self-reliant, responsible, cautious, and aware of hazards. As well, mountain weather can be unpredictable, so be prepared for changes. Check the weather before the trip to determine appropriate clothing. For safety reasons, if you show up for this trip unprepared or with inappropriate clothing / gear you will not be permitted to continue on the trip.

If you have any questions I can be contacted at [masked]

    Hi all,

    I was hoping to have purchased a new pair of ski boots for this trip and have found out they are now sold out. This is causing problems for my next three trips. I need another organizer to take over this trip so I can fix by boot problem or find a available rental solution. If I can't find someone to take over the trip I will need to post pone until January. I will let you know what is happening soon.

    This trail is considered advanced, and we will be spending time out of the tracks with fast down hill sections.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
