King Creek Ridge

• CORA Organizers no longer accept cash at the trailhead! In order to join this event you need to be a CORA 2014 member; there is no alternative. Payments are done online (the blue link on the left. Type the amount of payment in the box. Smart phones don't have this application, so you need to do this on a PC/Mac). 

 

King Creek Ridge is a minor elevation ridge along the western edge of the main range of the Opal Range in Kananaskis Country. Despite its minor elevation this ridge provides a hike to some of the best views of the Opal Range and the southern Kananaskis River valley. The name is an official name, assumedly named since the valley east of the ridge is the source of the north branch of King Creek. There is no record of the first ascent, but given the straightforward ascent hike, it was likely quite some time ago.  King Creek Ridge only links to another peak with one col, a col shared with Mt. Hood.  There is 185 metres of prominence from this col (col elevation 2240m).

Getting There: Park in the King Creek parking lot, opposite the turn off for Kananaskis Lakes, approximately 50 km south of the Trans Canada Highway. To gain the South Ridge of King Creek Ridge you hike north along the highway, taking the bridge to cross King Creek, then take the obvious trail heading north of creek.

    If you want to do it as a loop, probably I won't go, it's not that fun to cross the same creek like 20 times.

    Along with the usual gear, icer's etc..... it may be wise to bring your snowshoes along just in case.
