Description

Kananaskis Country is Alberta's most popular recreation area, covering over 4000 square hectares of the Canadian Rockies south and east of Banff National Park. The country is spectacular: mountains, forests, lakes, glaciers, canyons. Its diverse topography is reflected in the varied nature of the walks, over 60 described, which include all the interpretive trails, a selection of other short walks, plus five in the town of Canmore itself. Whatever your choice, all trails are well marked and require no expertise on the part of the walker.

About the Author

Gillean Daffern has explored Kananaskis Country for decades and understands its landscape and history intimately throughout every season of the year.

She also travels to mountain areas outside of Kananaskis Country, and in particular enjoys visiting countries off the beaten tourist path. Gillean is the co-founder of Rocky Mountain Books and, along with her husband, Tony Daffern, was awarded the Banff Mountain Festival’s Summit of Excellence Award in 2006. She lives in Calgary, Alberta.
