Should you decide to visit Canada by hiking through its beautiful mountains, there are several trails that you shouldn’t miss. The following are some of the best hikes for enjoying nature at its fullest. For more specific information on these and other Canadian activities, you can always check out Canada 411.
The first trail you must try is the Killarney Wilderness Trail that extends 7.5 kilometers. It can become challenging in some areas but it’s perfect overall for the average hiker. It is located in a remote area, so bring signaling and other safety devices.
The second hike to try is the Crobe Lake Trail, a little more advanced than Killarney. Most inexperienced hikers take this trail in a counter-clockwise direction, hitting the steepest areas first while they are still fresh. It takes about six hours to complete, which is fine since you will see some of the most beautiful scenery including bridges, lakes, and fantastic lookout points.
The third trail is in Waterton National Park located to the west in Alberta. Here you will find several trails that require more expertise on the trail. Together they are almost 200 kilometers of phenomenal hiking. Be sure you’re an expert before you leave, take plenty of water and a first aid kit.
Finally, the fourth trail is found in the newest park in Alberta, Cypress Hills Provincial Park. Here you will find much easier terrain to cover. There are also perfect areas for family groups and other beginners who prefer trails that are more laid back and beautiful. The good news is that the park has free admission and there are many other outdoor activities in which you can participate.
