Getting to Peter Lougheed Provincial Park:

Parking access to Kent South Peak hike:

From Calgary: 130 km – 1h40 driving time

Take the Trans-Canada hwy AB-1 West toward Banff for 66 km until the 118 exit toward Kananaskis Country. Follow the AB-40 South for 55km and turn right on AB-742 toward Kananaskis Lakes. After 2.5km, take another turn right toward Spray Lakes Reservoir. Your destination will be on your right, 3 km further.

Helpful information

To enjoy your hike, you must:

Be Equipped: Hiking boots are a necessity. A steep section of the hike (easy scramble) requires ankle protection. Hiking poles are also recommended on your way down. Grizzlies are usually present in the area, therefore bear spray should be easily accessible in the case of unexpected encounters. Finally, always bring water and food in sufficient quantities.

Parking: You can park alongside the edge of the road (Right side).

Information: Access to Kananaskis Country is not free. You will need to register your vehicle(s) online on the Kananaskis park website and purchase a daily or annual pass. Note that the fees are per vehicle and not per hiker, so carpooling is an option. Be mindful of the forecast and visit the park’s website before your hike to find up to date information such as last seen wildlife, trail conditions, etc.

The Hike

For the most part, this hike is in the forest. While less interesting in summer, winter offers more openings to the surrounding landscape through the trees. 

The hike starts by climbing a slope directly off the road to reach the forest. The first 2.5 km (1.55 mi) will climb continuously with a few steep, albeit non-technical, sections. Next is the summit ridge offering scenic views on one side. 

Accessible all year long, this mountain can be climbed without any technical difficulties and offers a 360 degree panorama of the surrounding mountains (such as South Lawson Peak) and Lower Kananaskis Lake.

After 500 meters, you will reach the summit after a last (and short) return to the forest. The 360-degree view at the top is worth the effort. You will be surrounded by high summits and can appreciate part of the Lower Kananaskis Lake. 

Retrace your steps to get back to the parking lot.

    Thanks for your article on the travel industry. I’d personally also like to include that if you are a senior taking into consideration traveling, it really is absolutely essential that you buy traveling insurance for seniors. When traveling, elderly people are at greatest risk being in need of a professional medical emergency. Obtaining right insurance package for the age group can safeguard your health and provide peace of mind.

    Okay, this might be a little bit random, but I saw your blog and had to ask, are you interested in a translation job? I know I’m a stranger but I felt like doing a good deed today by alerting a couple people that a good position has opened up here: and they pay sometimes even $70/hour. Okay, they won’t always give that amount, I only made around $400 last week, but it’s part time and when times are tight, every little bit helps. Hope it helps, and my apologies if you’re not interested. Have a great day/evening!

    Hey, honestly your site is coming along :-), but I had a question – it’s a bit slow. Have you thought about using a different host like propel? It’d help your visitors stick around longer = more profit long term anyway. There’s a decent review on it by this guy who uses gtmetrix to test different hosting providers: and the whole video has a bunch of gold in it, worth checking out.

    I have been surfing on-line more than 3 hours as of late, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is lovely value sufficient for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you did, the net will probably be a lot more useful than ever before.
