Route Description for Terrace Trail
There are two segments of the Terrace Trail in Kananaskis, and our route follows the south trail. Both leave from Ribbon Creek day-use and both are very popular with mountain bikers. When hiking, watch for traffic when the trail narrows from wide and open to singletrack. From the Ribbon Creek day-use, join the Terrace Trail towards the Kovach Trail and stay on the well-maintained and easy-to-follow trail. You’ll pass by Kananaskis Village and the Kananaskis Country golf course as you make your way towards Galatea. When you reach the junction with the Galatea Lakes Trail, it is time to turn back and enjoy the rolling descent back to Ribbon Creek.
Getting to the Terrace Trail Trailhead
Take the exit onto Highway 40 from the Trans Canada Highway and follow this road for 22.0 km before turning right onto Mount Allan Drive at Kananaskis Village. Turn left onto Centennial, and right onto Ribbon Creek Drive. Park at the Ribbon Creek day-use area.
