Moose Mountain
Kananaskis Country Trail Guide
May 23, 2010

It's been over ten years since I've been to Moose Mountain and even then I mountain biked it. This time I went on foot with Dinah, who had never been there. The trip was unremarkable although we were surprised at the amount of snow on the mountain. But the snow didn't stop other hikers we saw along the way, including some who hiked to the top in running shoes!


Fresh snow on the trail


A break in the trees allows a view of Moose Mountain.


The trail here is under a few feet of snow.

The lookout from the false summit


The road below the lookout is buried under snow so we ascended the rocks.
