A secondary, 6km one-way route into the famous & scenic Ink Pots and surrounding meadows. (and a secondary way to beyond there such as Larry's Camp/Mystic, etc.) A great XC ski, some challenging climbs & descents, skins aren't mandatory but can be helpful.

Very scenic route, the Ink Pots are mineral rich pools with interesting colours (somewhat muted in winter though). The surrounding area is a very scenic but reasonably easy to access area.

The GPS log shows the trip past Ink Pots following the stream bed and coming back on the official trail.

Setting out in -17C but a generally sunny day, this made a great event. Current conditions:

Directions:

1.4 km *West* of the Johnston Canyon parking lot or 4.8 km *East* of the Castle Junction on Hiway #1A (Bow Valley Parkway). You can get to it from either end (Castle or the first exit West of Mt. Norquay road). Big picture: 142km West of Calgary Olympic Park lights.
