This short, interpretive trail is dedicated to the spirit of the 1982 expedition, which saw the first Canadian set foot atop Mt. Everest. It is located in Peter Lougheed Prov. Park in Kananaskis Country, and follows a 2km trail above Kananaskis Lake. A nice, easy, short trail with very little elevation gain, with a nice view of the lake.
As well, the PLP Visitors Center features a great display area with stuffed Mountain Lion, Big Horn Sheep, Griz & few other critters.
NTS Map: 082J11
Elevation Gain: 100 m (328 ft).
From Hwy 1, drive 50 km south on Hwy 40, turn right (west) onto Kananaskis Lakes Trail. Continue 12.7 km and turn left (south) into White Spruce parking lot.

UpsideThis is among one of the best of the short interpretive trails in Kananaskis Country. There are staris up the steep hills. DownsideIf you always have to have outstanding views, you will be disappointed as you only have views for a short portion at the top. CommentA great walk for anyone who is camping at either Mt. Sarrial or Interlakes Campgrounds. It easily gets the hiker to a spectacular viewpoint with very little effort. Suitable for everyone including small children.
