Description: To practice being ‘on top of the world’ we’ll do one of the “finest ridge walks in K-Country” (says Gillian Daffern in her Kananaskis Country Trail Guide, Vol. 5). We start from the Hwy. 40 access W of Longview. Although it’s possible to do a 23 km loop, we’ll go only as far along the ridge as time and circumstances permit. Height gain is over 800 m, so only consider this hike if you’re a fit, veteran hiker.
Notice of Cancellation: The trip leader will contact registered participants by phone or email if the trip is cancelled or postponed. Registrants are asked to change their RSVP if they have a change of plan.
