In response to the Canmore community expressing a need and desire for more public engagement and volunteer stewardship of local trails, primarily located on Kananaskis County park land, the Friends of Kananaskis County initiated the Canmore Trail Alliance (CTA). The CTA is working in partnership with land managers, recreational groups, clubs, businesses, and the community at large, to support an integrated trail system that contributes to a vibrant, active Canmore. Trail days will be very Thursday evenings (6-9pm) and most Saturday mornings (9am-12pm).

The CTA is guided by passionate trail users from the Canmore community, Alberta Parks and the Town of Canmore. The CTA has a dedicated group of crew leaders. Our crew leaders take out volunteer crews so they can give back to the local trails – and keep trails in top shape. These dedicated trail lovers help make Canmore’s trail awesome!
