Boulton Creek (Kananaskis Lakes Trail) to Lower Lake Campground has been closed off due to multiple Grizzly Bears in the area.

The closure comes a few days after the Peter Lougheed Paved bike path from Lower Lake Campground to Mount Sarrail Campground in K-Country had been closed due to bear activity in the area. Both closures are in effect until further notice.

"Although an advisory is in place for this area, bears can be encountered anywhere in the Kananaskis Region at any time," parks officials stated.

To avoid a surprise encounter with a bear:

  • Make plenty of noise and travel in groups.
  • Be aware of your surroundings. Look and listen for bears and their signs.
  • Keep your pet on a leash.
  • Carry bear spray. Make sure it’s easily accessible, and know how to use bear spray.

Visitors are asked to report all bear sightings immediately to 403-591-7755.
