Knoll Hill and Ford Creek

On Saturday we explored an area of Kananaskis we haven’t been to in a while. It was part of my reconnaissance of my race next weekend and we turned it into a weekend family hike. The trailhead was near a picnic area at the forget-me-not pond which was absolutely packed on this beautiful weekend. After our picnic lunch we hiked up this lonely trail that the tourists obviously were not fond of.

We hiked up an hour, saw an amazing view of Powderridge Mountain and then went back down to the river to cool off.

This area is popular for horse back riding so the trails seem wider, but not less steep. There are lots of loose rock and tree roots so it will be a pretty hairy section.

It was good to be able to check out this part of the trail race so I can visualize it before I get there.
