Kananaskis Fire Lookout from Pocaterra\’s \”Back door\”

Date(s) - Mon Aug 02
8:30 am


This is a relatively easy wide forest trail to a fabulous viewpoint of Kananaskis Lakes.   It is an unmanned Lookout and no facilities available at back door, which is about 8 kms over Highwood Pass (small square shaped parking lot on right).  Can be mountain biked, or snowshoe’d or X-C skied in winter.   I am going to be “off the grid” July 27th thru 31st so cannot communicate until evening of 31st.
