Don’t have much time and or new to hiking in the mountains? Why not check out Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, located in Golden, British Columbia, just 2.5 hrs from Calgary along the Trans Canada highway. For first timers will love that you can access the high alpine country, that would normally require a massive climb of vertical by foot up a trail. Here you ride the Gondola up.
Offering the only Gondola accessed hiking in the region, Kicking Horse is a place where you can feel far removed from the hustle and bustle of busy life and stop to relax for a moment. Stepping through the Gondola doors at the top on a balmy summer day, whether it’s the first or fortieth time can induce feelings of awe and wonder.
For an easy/moderate hiking venture try the CPR ridge guided hike and learn about the vegetation and views surrounding you from our resident expert. If you are looking to explore on your own, grab a trail map and check out one of our hiking trails with some friends, hikes can range from 20 -30 minutes up to 6 hours and will leave you wanting to return to try them all!
