Tombstone Pass Backcountry Ride


Tombstone Pass Backcountry Ride
Alberta Canada

Explore some of the most remote parts of the Kananaskis mountain range.

Over 5 days we’ll move with packhorses and occupy 3 camps in 3 different mountain valleys, separated by Tombstone Pass. Because we’re traveling with packhorses and very little of the trail is suitable for speed, most of this trip is done at a walk with the occasional trot.

We’ll cover roughly 100 kms in the Elbow, Sheep and Little Elbow valleys of Kananaskis Country. This is a great ride to combine with the Kananaskis Country Explorer.
