Trail upgrades in 2021 improved scramble conditions to the summit of Yamnuska. But this is still a challenging half-day adventure, especially daunting for those with any fear of heights/exposure.
Yamnuska Natural Area Winter Hiking
Now part of Bow Valley Wildland Provincial Park, the former Yamnuska Natural Area features a network of unsigned trails that weave around multiple ponds and small lakes. With lots of options for out-and back and loop hikes of various distances, it's a good destination to explore with kids. Just be sure to stay away from the south end, which neighbours the area's landfill!
