October 18th Friday
The parking for the trail for Wasootch Ridge Kananaskis is about 17 km up Hwy 40 on the left hand side and is sign posted.
Beware the trail starts at the same place as Old Baldy Pass which sets off to the left. Wasootch is not signed but is hidden behind trees straight ahead.
The first 15 to 20 minutes goes up at a steep gradient after that the ridge appears as the trees thin out.It is straight forward from here on in,follow the trail.
Elevation is gained and lost the whole way but the views never stop.
We only went to the end of the official ridge walk,where the stone shelter is built. The far peak we left for a summer’s day with longer daylight and better conditions.
Distance 11.5 km Elevation gain 1060 m High piont 2160 m Time 6 hrs
