Kananaskis – Smith Dorrien Hikes
Kananaskis Country, or K – Country, is an undiscovered gem for outdoor lovers, and has fewer crowds than the adjacent Banff National Park. Arguably the best part of K – Country is the Smith Dorrien Highway (Hwy 742), which we cover here. The Smith-Dorrien connects Canmore with the Kananaskis Lakes on a well-maintained gravel road. The hikes accessed from the Smith-Dorrien are wonderful. Starting at a higher elevation means that there is usually less elevation gain! Here we share some of the greatest hikes in the Kananaskis region and include the Spray Valley Provincial Park as well as parts of Peter Lougheed Provincial Park.
