The Natural Bridge
The Drama of Kananaskis Country:
Explore the endless panoramas and lower foothills of the Southern tip of the Canadian Rockies
Our last hike! Today we will straddle the Continental Divide between Alberta and British Columbia. Unlike most of the Continental Divide, which is characterized by sharp ragged peaks, this region offers 100 square kilometers of fairly flat, easily hiked meadows. It’s one of the most accessible and beautiful higher altitude hiking experiences in the Canadian Rockies, a garden in nature really, situated at around 7300′ (2250 m) above sea level. Ride the Chairlift , experience stunning 360 degree views from the Viewing Deck, and begin your hike!
