Razors Edge Hike is also bike trail that connects to Jewel Pass. The Jewel Pass trail connects to Praire View Lookout and the Quaite Valley. The trail starts from Hwy #1 T.C.H at the Quaite Valley Road parking or drive into the ditch on the south side of the road, going east, just before the uphill bend with the big rockband coming down to the road. The Razors Edge is actually a ridge of McConnell Point leading up to Mt. Yates
The views up the Bow Valley contrast with the views east on to the prairies.
On this ouing we walked to Jewel Pass and unsure if the Quaite Valley was open after the floods turned around to return the same route. Another time it would be good to have a car at Barrier Lake and walk right through. I later found out that the Friends of Kananaskis have already worked on the trail and it is open.
Chilver Lake and Chief Hector Camp area also the site of many scout camps.
