Route Description for Bull Creek Hills Loop

The hike begins 100 m from the large wooden Kananaskis sign. It starts by making its way up through some tall grasses where you can see your objectives. Be sure to have a GPS track with you because the trail can disappear and some areas require route-finding. The route gets very steep at times, but this is quickly rewarded with incredible wildflowers and panoramic vistas. Traverse along the skyline tagging all the high points of the hills along the way before returning back to your vehicle.
