This trail is the first part of the Kananaskis classic Quirk Creek - Wild Horse Loop. It's very much a backcountry trail, made up of single and doubletrack, gravel road and old horse trail. It doesn't get much [any] maintenance, so expect it to be rough in spots.

Access Info

Access is from Cobble Flats. You'll need to ford the Elbow river at least once depending on the braids. The river can be cold and fast, so take care when crossing.
