Mist Mountain Trail is a 6.2 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Kananaskis Improvement District, AB that features hot springs and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible from June until September. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.

The beginning of the hike is easy to moderate. A steady but moderate climb through forest until you reach a beautiful meadow situated between 2 mountains. Once you reach the top of the meadow to the saddle, the trail becomes rocky and much steeper. Plenty of wildlife and fossil remnants to be seen all the way to the top ! Although the last mile is difficult due to the steepness and loose rock, I would highly recommend this hike due to the magnificent views once you reach the peak. A helmet is recommended.
