Kananaskis Maps

The best Kananaskis Country maps are produced by Gem Trek Publishing. This company divides the region up by popular recreation areas, with maps that include Canmore & Kananaskis Village (1:50,000) and Kananaskis Lakes (1:50,000). Like all maps in this series, they are created using computer-generated 3-D imagery to clearly define changes in elevation and GPS to plot hiking trails. The backs of the maps are filled with trail information as well as tidbits of history.

These Kananaskis Country maps are available at information centres stores throughout the region, as well as at local gas stations and gift shops. In Calgary, Map Town (400 5th Ave. SW, 403/266-2241) is a specialist map shop worth stopping at as you pass through.
