|Park in Kings Creek picnic area on the east side of highway #40 just
north of the turn off to Kananaskis Lakes Trail and before the
closed gates to the pass. There may be parking restrictions on the
highway so this may make car pooling advantageous if the parking
spaces are all occupied. Although this is only 42 k in distance there
is at least 750 m climbing some at 10+% grade. We will summit and
descend to the south boundary of Peter Lougheed provincial park
and perhaps a little beyond if the group so decides. We will stop for
lunch / snack upon returning to the summit. Expect to have close
encounters with mountain sheep and be truly impressed with the
views afforded during your ride on the highest paved road in
