Barrier Lake Trail is a 5.3 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Kananaskis, AB that features a lake and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for walking and is accessible from March until November.
Nice enough, but nothing too crazy. Took us about 2 hours to make it to the campground and back using the path that tracks closest to the shoreline.
Great hike. I would rate this hike moderate due to the steep incline on the way up.
I love the views. easy hike.
Today I completed the Barrier Lake lookout hike that links down to jewel pass which connects to the barrier lake trail that circles the lake. This hike was roughly 14km and one of my favourite hikes this season! The views were breathtaking and the hike was moderate.
It was a beautiful hike, awesome scenery!!
Super easy to navigate through. You can literally do this blind. Only thing that's a downside, is the amount of people on this trail, but other than that, the views are very pretty! Definitely doable for families and those that want to bring their furry pets along :)
Great trails. lots of various trails you can take.
We went early spring without ice cleats...big mistake.
Great short trail. Great views. The noise from the highway is distracting though. Good 2nd hike for the day short and easy
Nice little trail...a bit steep but great views of Barrier Lake and of the highway very quickly.
Nice little trail for kids and beginner. nice view
