Jewell Pass, Kananaskis


Trail descriptions

Link to trail description.


This is about a 4 hour round trip that we have done a few times. If you wanted to do it quicker you could do the Quaite Valley trail also in this web.


We take the dog. It is fine but I prefer to keep her on leash. Once we had heard there were bears on the trail down.

Getting there

Parking and trail finding is pretty easy. Just park at barrier dam parking site and follow the trail around the lake. Map below. I like this hike as it is one of the closest and easiest ones to Calgary so there is a minimal driving commitment.

Descriptions of the trail we take

We always go up the trail to Jewell Pass and then down the switch backs
