A popular set of trails in the Canmore area will see some closures over the next few months.

The Grassi Lakes Trails and day-use areas are having some maintenance and construction work done, with closures expected in various areas during the warmer months.

Scheduled closures are listed on the Alberta Parks website:

Short-Term Closure

  • June 3 – June 6, 2024
  • Grassi Lakes parking lots, including the main lot and overflow lot, will both be closed during these dates.
  • There will be no access to the Upper Grassi Lakes Trail or Grassi Lakes Interpretive Trail.

Temporary Intermittent Trail Closures to Accommodate Construction

  • May 21 – June 2, 2024
  • June 7 – July 31, 2024
  • Detours and closures will be ongoing during this project. Access to the lakes will still be available via one of the two trails.
  • Note that during construction, only the Grassi Lakes Interpretive Trail may be open for use. The Grassi Lakes Interpretive Trail contains steep sections and stairs. Users will be required to navigate these steep stairs and sections both up and down the trail.
  • Please obey all signs, closures and detours.
