All of my valley views were from the roadway as I drove through, and I've added a return visit because the formations are so unusual. Other places to include in your itinerary: Bar U Ranch, Canmore

Very easy accessible Trails short distance from Calgary. Great day hikes or multi day Trails. Kananaski village has a store on the right just of the parking lot. In high season it's recommend to book spots ahead.

Loved our drive through Kananaskis Valley. Beautiful mountains but not as crazy busy as Banff or Jasper. Just wish we had more time to explore the hiking trails!
