 A beautiful hike and a cold pint!

Your Kananaskis hiking tour begins with meeting your guide in Kananaskis village. You’ll take a short shuttle ride to the trailhead where traces of the former mining town remain. Kavach, in the heart of mountainous Kananaskis Country, was a tiny town where the workers and their families from the coal mine once lived.

The hike takes you along the trail where horses used to haul the coal, to a spectacular viewpoint where the mine scar is visible. Along the way, you’ll spot old mining equipment, abandoned mining shacks, and the remnants of rail ties, used to move coal cars from the mine.

As you retrace your steps through the forest you can imagine miners walking home from a long day in the mine to their homes in Kovach.

After the hike, you’ll return to Kananaskis village where a cold pint of Ghost Town Ale or a Shirley Temple awaits you.

The hike is 5 km hike with a 250 m elevation gain.
