Highwood Pass Larches

Drive south on Hwy. 40 – Kananaskis Trail – from Hwy. 1 all the way to Highwood Pass, the highest road in Canada at 2206.3 metres/7239 feet. Park in the parking lot just past the Highwood Pass sign.


For fabulous views of the larches and a great hike, follow the Ptarmigan Cirque Trail that climbs about 100 metres above the pass. The trail is about 5 km round trip and is not difficult. To see the larches in living colour go before the end of September.

I’m sorry this photo doesn’t show the larches, but hopefully I’ll get one this year. Double click to enlarge.
