Kananaskis Continental Divide Ride


Kananaskis Continental Divide Ride
Alberta Canada

The Kananaskis Continental Divide Ride is designed for keen riders who are up to the challenge of covering between 170 and 200 km of rugged mountain trails in Kananaskis Country. Over the duration of the trek you will learn the basics of horse packing, wilderness horsemanship, low impact horse camping and a myriad of other skills to fully enjoy horse trekking.

Starting from the foothills, we move progressively westward and deeper into the mountains. Trails vary from difficult game tracks that require a knowledgeable guide to find, through to some that are suitable for cantering. We normally move camp 3 times , which allows us to remain for 2 days in two of the prettiest valleys in the Rockies, and do some horseback exploring unencumbered with pack horses and unconcerned about breaking and resetting camp. This also allows us the opportunity to do more or less difficult rides depending on the interests and ability of the group.

Elevations range between 4400′ at the Ranch, to over 8400′ at Paradise Pass. Routes may vary due to a variety of natural conditions. On some sections of trail the riders are required to dismount and walk their horses for safety. There are other destinations that require the horses be tied and people hike the last mile or so to reach an alpine lake, so a reasonable level of personal fitness is required.

Explore beautiful lakes that invite for a refreshing swim, snowcapped mountain passes, and lush meadows with clear streams running through.
