The Bow Corridor Link Trail is a section of the Trans-Canada Trail and connects to the Kananaskis Country trail system. Hikers on this trail will find that much of the path passes through wooded areas and offers the occasional great views of the mountains surronding the Bow Valley. The Bow Corridor Link Trail includes sections of single track hiking trail.
Flora along the trail includes harebells, asters, goldenrod, yarrow, indian paintbrush, fireweed and northern bedstraw. Also there is a Sulphur Spring and seven Discovery Panels along the trail. The views are best when the trail is hiked east to west.
Dead Mans Flats / Lac Des Arcs:

West Access: Travelling east on the Trans-Canada Highway from Canmore take the Dead Mans Flats exit. On the south side of the highway there will be a power line running parallel to the highway. The Bow Corridor Link Trail begins under the power line travelling east. There is also a Discovery Panel at this point.
