Bing: the adventures of baldys


The hike to the top of Old Baldy in Kananaskis Country begins from the Evan-Thomas Creek parking lot located on the east side of Kananaskis Trail   (Hwy 40), south of Boundary Ranch , and north of Wedge Pond , across the trail from Mount Kidd .  It is about 2 KM (1¹⁄₃ miles) from Evan-Thomas parking to the trail-head and 5.3 KM (3¹⁄₃ miles) from trail-head to summit with net elevation gain of 862 m (2,830 ft) to maximum altitude of 2,286 m (7,830 ft).  

Out of the parking lot, a brief walk south leads to a left turn onto Evans-Thomas Creek Road which parallels  Evans-Thomas Creek and provides impressive, periodic views of  'the Wedge' and the Fortress .

On about 2 KM (1¼ miles) of straight and relatively flat road, with leisurely elevation gain, it is important to resist the urge to take multiple trail alternatives on both sides until arriving at a clear option on a road turning left.  Hiking at an average around 4 KM per hour will arrive at the correct trail junction in about 30 minutes and it looks like the photo following the pretty bee-laden flower.
