A drive along the Kananaskis Trail is certainly in of the most scenic drives in Canada and in my opinion comparable to the Icefield Parkway or the Sea to Sky Highway.
As further you go as more impressive it gets and I felt like making pictures around every corner.
Since the beginning of the highway is on lower elevation you get a great view of the surrounding Rocky Mountain and just the rise was worth the flight there.
Eventually the trail leads to a higher elevation with even more beautiful scenerie. The drive is pretty easy since the most tourist head towards Banff without knowing about this gem just south of it.
Eventually you will teach the Highwood Pass what is the highest paved pass in Canada.
If you are in this area plan a trip along the Kananaskis trail and you will get a real view of the Rocky Mountain without being rushed by tons of tourists.
