Its a great area to start your hiking as it offers several trails and has a boat launch. In the winter time is great for cross country skiing

Peter Lougheed provincial park is a gem in all of Canada and my favorite park in all western Canada. So many trails and a view to die for at every turn. Extremely high chance of seeing bears in summer!!!

Canada scenery is amazing and Upper Kananaskis Lake is beautiful. The water is a clear glacial blue-green and I could have spent the whole day just staring at it's beauty.
