Rawson Lake South Ridge

Hazy reflection at Rawson Lake

Rawson lake is a popular day hike from Upper Kananaskis Lake. This South Ridges adds to the excitement and adds a difference. Unfortunately we took the wrong way up but my pictures show the best route and the wrong route. I was surprised at the amount of flowers on the ridge which added to the enjoyment. An animal / human trail goes along the Ridge. As you drop down keep to the ridge close left side as you want to come out onto the Rawson Trail behind the washrooms. We walked a long a wide grassy treed ledge dropping down to lake level. Then bush whacked to the washroom and trail, going back down the main trail.
