Jura Creek

We're sorry; registrations have closed for this adventure.

Distance: 8 - 10km
Elevation: 750m
Expected time: 5 hrs
Difficulty: moderate-

Ever wanted to hike through a cool stream in a slot canyon on a warm summer day – an hour’s drive from Calgary? Further up the valley you can visit a geology teaching site where three rock formations meet up, all several hundred million years old. Sign up to walk with Heinz up Jura Creek, and maybe even scout out the “trail” to Loder Peak. It’s a pleasant walk along the creek above the canyon, and for the way down you may choose the alternative forest trail. It’s about a 5 hours’ outing, and water shoes are essential for the canyon hike, plus some basic scrambling skills.
