As I emerged from the deep pine forest trail into the beautiful, open alpine meadow one chilly October morning, I found myself amazed that after all these years, the Chester Lake hike can still wow me.
Snowshoeing in the Canadian Rockies is one of the best ways to get out and experience the beauty of these majestic mountains in the winter. Imagine being on the quiet mountain trails with large snowflakes falling and having the feeling of being in a Christmas snow globe. It really doesn’t get any more peaceful than that and you might even start calling the Kananaskis snowshoe trails your happy place.
Karst Spring Trail is one of our favorite Kananaskis hiking trails, in fact, it’s one of the few Kananaskis hikes we try to make time for each and every year. We love hikes with a payoff, and this hike delivers big-time!
