October Festival and Hike Pairings - Calgary & Bragg Creek

While hiking is definitely my favorite thing to do in fall, the kids love pumpkin and scarecrow festivals more, so we try to combine the two for fun and fitness. Here are some festival and hike pairings for you to try this October.


1. Alberta Culture Days - September 30 - October 2: Learn about our province's arts, heritage and cultural diversity at several free events and get free admission at Frank Slide Interpretive Centre, Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump and more!

Hike and Culture Day event pairings:
  • Bike the Bow River Pathway and cycle tracks to Decidely Jazz Danceworks for a free dance lesson! More bike ride ideas here: 10 Fun Family Bike Rides in Calgary.
  • There is a fun 1.5 km interpretive loop at Frank Slide Interpretive Centre & Lundbreck Falls (day use) is a must-see on your way home! 
  • Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump Interpretive Centre has a 3 km interpretive trail. Learn how buffalo were traditionally hunted.
Frank Slide Trail, Alberta

Lundbreck Falls, Alberta
2. Butterfield Acres Pumpkin Hunt - October weekends by reservation: Take a tractor-pulled wagon ride to the pumpkin patch and pick out your very own pumpkin, then decorate it and visit the farm animals. We love visiting the goats, bunnies, sheep, and pigs (but there are horses, donkeys, and birds too!). Book your tickets asap as this popular event sells out fast!
Waterfall Valley Lookout, Bowmont Park
3. Calgary Corn Maze Pumpkin Festival - October 1 & 2, 8-10, 15 & 16, 22 & 23: Enjoy the Pumpkin Explosion, corn maze, pony rides, fun farm, and pumpkin decorating. Mini pumpkin and pony rides included in admission for kids under 17!
Corn Maze
Fish Creek Park
4. Bragg Creek Scarecrow Festival - October 7 - November 6: Visit and vote for your favorite scarecrows then enjoy an ice cream or bite to eat.
  • Nearby hikes: Alder Loop (1.6 km), Elbow Falls (day use), Forget-me-not Pond (picnic area and 2 km hike) and Prairie Mountain (7.8 km, 700 m elevation gain).
Bragg Creek Scarecrow Festival
Forget-Me-Not Pond
5. Blue Grass Nursery Pumpkin Festival - October 8: This festival is the most affordable pumpkin festival in town as admission is by donation to the Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation (recommended donation: $10-20 per car), but it is by no means a small festival. With a petting zoo, pumpkin decorating, Cinderella coach rides, massive pumpkin smash and more - they smash a car with a massive pumpkin dropped from a crane - it's fun for everyone.
  • Nearby parksConfluence Park (look for the goats doing weed control!), Nose Hill Park (hike to boulders, a pond, and aboriginal Medicine Wheel).

Camping in the David Thompson Corridor

If you want to get off the beaten path, go camping in the David Thompson! Only three hours from Calgary, this beautiful area boasts quiet campgrounds and great hiking. From the Icefields Parkway to Rocky Mountain House, you can find a peaceful place to stay. Here is where we like to stay on "the road less travelled", the David Thompson Highway (Hwy 11).



WEST CORRIDOR

Thompson Creek is the closest campground to the Icefields Parkway. Sites are of varying sizes, but all are well shaded. Non potable water and free firewood are available. First come, first served. We stayed here on a Sunday night in July and found a spot easily as the campground was only half full. The location makes it a great base camp for exploring the Icefields Parkway and West (David Thompson) Corridor, but I recommend Two O'Clock Creek for mountain views!

Thompson Creek Campground
Crescent Falls
Two O'Clock Creek is across the highway from the Siffleur Falls trailhead. Sites are partially shaded or in full sun, but (most) have beautiful mountain views. The campground can get pretty windy, so peg your tent down well. Non potable water and free firewood (1 wheelbarrow full) available. First come, first served. A great base camp for exploring the western corridor.

Two O'Clock Creek Campground
Trail to Siffleur Falls
NORDEGG AREA (Central)

Fish Lake is one of the largest campgrounds in the area and has lovely, coveted lakeside spots in Loops 1 & 2. Loop 4 is reservable and Loop 5 has sites backing on to Mud Lake (not a swimming or fishing lake, but you get a nice view). Purchase snacks, camping gear, and fishing lures at the Bear Essentials Store in Loop 4. 

Our favorite things to do here are fishing (the lake is stocked with rainbow trout), paddling, and walking around the lake. Bikes are permitted on the trail, but we found the trail a bit narrow and rooty for the kids. Centrally located about 6 km from Nordegg.



  • Nearby attraction: Brazeau Collieries (National Historic Site)
Fish Lake
Windy Point Ridge Lookout
Goldeye Lake is across the highway from Fish Lake, a short drive from Nordegg. Campsites are smaller with fewer trees in between, but there are a few campsites near the the lake. There is also a lakeshore hiking trail, fishing (the lake is stocked with rainbow trout), and paddling. For canoe rentals, contact Goldeye Centre.

EAST CORRIDOR

Crimson Lake Provincial Park has two campgrounds: Crimson Lake and Twin Lakes. We love beach time, biking, and paddling at Crimson Lake. With great family and evening programs and the friendliest campground hosts ever, you will want to return year after year!

Crimson Lake is a large, full-service campground and Twin Lakes is a basic campground. For more information on camping and recreational opportunities in the park, please see: Fun Times at Crimson Lake Provincial Park.

  • Nearby hiking/biking trails: Amerada Trail, Beaver Pond, Twin Lakes Boardwalk


  • Nearby attractions: Wilderness Village petting zoo (free), Rocky Mountain House National Historic Site

Twin Lakes Day Use Area, Crimson Lake Provincial Park

RANDOM CAMPING

Random camping is not permitted in the provincial parks or provincial recreation areas, but is allowed in wildland areas and public land use zones (PLUZ) with some restrictions. For more information, please see Alberta Parks - Random Backcountry Camping. Some popular spots to random camp in the David Thompson are along Abraham Lake.

If you choose to random camp, please practice leave no trace to keep the area beautiful and clean: bury human waste, pack out ALL garbage (even if it's biodegradable), and dispose of grey water properly. It is most important to not go to the washroom or dispose of grey water within 60 metres (200 feet) of the lake or any water source. Also, bring your own firewood. Did you know it's a ticketable offense to collect and burn deadfall? Dead trees are a home for small animals and an important source of nutrients to other forest plants as they biodegrade especially in fragile alpine environments. Finally, wherever possible, reuse an existing fire pit before making a new one. Best practice is to dismantle fire pits when they're no longer needed.

Crescent Falls and Bighorn Gorge Lookout

Crescent Falls is where the Bighorn River plummets 30 metres over two ledges. After visiting the stunning falls, you can hike or drive to Bighorn Gorge Lookout, a deep and dramatic canyon. Just half an hour from Nordegg, or 3 hours from Calgary!


While the upper falls can be viewed from viewing platforms near the parking lot, it's a bit more work to see the lower falls. For a complete view of the upper and lower falls, hike 1 km towards Bighorn Gorge Lookout. *Most of the trail isn't fenced, so use extreme caution.* From there, you may continue on to the canyon lookout (6 km return from Crescent Falls Day Use) or go back the way you came.

I recommend turning back after 1 km and doing a more scenic hike such as Siffleur FallsVision Quest, or Hoodoo Creek. You can easily view Bighorn Gorge Lookout from a pullout on the way back to Highway 11 (signed & on the right). If you choose to hike to the lookout, it is an easy, forested walk with a logs to climb over.


Crescent Falls
Trail to Bighorn Gorge Lookout


Crescent Falls - upper & lower falls

Crescent Falls at a Glance

Directions: 18 km west of Nordegg, turn right at the Crescent Falls sign. Continue for 4.4 km, then turn left towards Crescent Falls Provincial Recreation Area. After 1.7 km, park in the day use parking lot on the left. 
Washrooms: Pit toilets at Crescent Falls Day Use area
Stroller friendly: No
Nearest Campground: Crescent Falls campground is across the creek from the day use area. Sites are unserviced, first come-first served, and quiet.

Sketchy sidetrip: If you have time and good shoes, you may take a sketchy, unofficial trail to the pool below the upper falls, but do so at your own risk with extreme caution. Several people have lost their lives here. The water is powerful and the rocks near the falls are extremely slippery. NOT recommended for children. Allow 30 minutes return.

Directions from Nordegg: Drive west on Hwy 11 for 18 km, then turn right at the Crescent Falls sign. Continue for 3.5 km. Park at the small parking lot on the left side of the road.

Directions from Crescent Falls: Drive SE towards Hwy 11. In 2.7 km, the parking lot will be on your right.

Bighorn Gorge Lookout
Thanks to Melissa from Rockieschick's Adventures for the beautiful photos of Crescent Falls! I've been twice, but was the first time it was smoky (forest fires in BC) and this year, it was rainy. Fingers crossed it's a clear, sunny day next time we go!

Vision Quest Hike, Clearwater County, Alberta

Vision Quest is a local's favorite for gorgeous views of Abraham Lake and surrounding peaks. It's a quite a grind, as it's an unrelenting climb, but totally worth it. After about 1.5 km, you are rewarded with a beautiful lookout (plateau) at an aboriginal vision quest site. 

Continue on to the top of the ridge for expansive views towards the north if you still have energy, then return the way you came. This trail is considered an easy scramble due to the steep grade and loose rock near the top. Be sure to wear good hiking boots! 

A huge thank you to Melissa from Rockieschick's Adventures for the amazing photos and hike info! Please follow her if you don't already! Melissa adds that a rock helmet is not required for Vision Quest (unless you like to scramble crazy stuff like her adventurous daughter). 


Vision Quest Trail At a Glance

Distance: 5.2 km return
Elevation Gain: 700 m gain
Difficulty: Strenuous hike / easy scramble (lots of scree on upper half of the trail)
Stroller friendly? No
Washrooms? No
Time: Allow 4-6 hours with kids; less if hiking to the lookout only

  • From the Nordegg turnoff (Hwy 11 & Stuart St), travel west on Hwy 11 for about 42 km. Turn right onto Township Road 37-5. Drive 2.4 km to end of the road and park on the side of the road (don't block the entrance to the dump!).
  • From Saskatchewan Crossing, turn left 1.6 km east of David Thompson Resort onto Township Road 37-5. Drive 2.4 km to end of the road and park on the side of the road (don't block the entrance to the dump!).
The trail starts on the right (north) side of the dump and is marked with a sign saying it's not an official trail.

Vision Quest is a must-do if you're in the Nordegg / David Thompson area and is hikeable most of the year as it's usually windswept and snow-free.  Let me know how you like it!

Family Season's Passes at Nakiska & The Big 3

There are few things more thrilling than flying down a snowy slope on a bluebird Alberta day. Whether you board or ski, you know what I'm talking about! If you just can't get enough snow and speed in your life, it's time to take the next step and commit to a season's pass. Here's what you need to know before saying I do:
  • When does a Family Season's Pass save you money? 
  • How to save money if you have little kids, post secondary students, or ski infrequently.
  • Key Features of Nakiska, Norquay, Sunshine, and Lake Louise's Family Season's Passes. 
This post was NOT sponsored.


When Does a Family Season's Pass Save You Money?

A family season's pass is the best deal for families with 2 adults and at least one child 6-17 years old* provided you ski at least 10 times a season (at sale pricing)

If you have 2 children 6 & up, your pass pays for itself in only 8 visits (at sale pricing)!* 

Single parents with 2 teenagers can save with a Family Season's Pass at Nakiska, Norquay, and Lake Louise at sale prices (and at Nakiska and the Big 3 at regular prices).

*Exceptions 
  • If you only have one child who is eligible for the Grade 2 $20 Fun Pass (available at Nakiska, Sunshine and Lake Louise), it's more economical to purchase Adult passes and a Grade 2 Fun Pass.
  • The Nakiska Family Pass or Norquay 90 Family Pass pays for itself in only 4 visits at sale pricing!
  • The Lake Louise Parent Pass allows 2 parents to share a pass and receive a complimentary Beginner Fun Zone ticket for the other parent. One parent skis while the other teaches the kids to ski in the learning area! A great option for families with kids aged 0-5! 

Skiing is fun for the whole family!

Family Season's Pass FAQs

  1. What about kids under 6 years old? Kids under 6 ski free at our local ski hills, but if you are a frequent skier, you may wish to purchase a Tiger (0-5 yr old) Season's pass so you don't have to line up and get a lift ticket every time you ski.

  2. What if I have more than 2 kids aged 6 & up? Mount Norquay, Sunshine and Lake Louise Family Season's Passes include all children under 17 that live with you. Nakiska's pass includes only 2 children, so you will need to purchase an additional child/youth/student pass (but this still works out to less than a family pass at Sunshine or Lake Louise). 

  3. What about kids over 17 years old? If you have Post secondary students (18-29 yrs old) at home with you as well as younger children, get a Student Add-On to your Family Season's Pass for about the same price as Youth passes. Non-students will need adult season's passes.

  4. How can I save money if I only ski a few times per season? 
    • The best deal by far is Mount Norquay's Toonie Days. Ski all day for $2 !
    • If you have a kid in Grade 4 or 5 and like to ski at different resorts during ski season, consider the Grade 4 & 5 Snowpass that lets your child ski 3 times at each participating location for $29.95. 
    • Purchase a discount card from your favorite ski hill. For little more than a daily lift ticket, you get your 1st, 4th, and 7th day of skiing free and discounts on other visits. Look at the Big Drop (Norquay), Lake Louise, RCR (Nakiska), or Sunshine cards.
    • Take advantage of coupons, Groupons, and Costco deals. Costco sells lift tickets to Norquay, Lake Louise and Sunshine for 20-30% off. 
    • The ADmazing Savings Ticket Pack (formerly Student Union Ticket Pack) also has coupons for Nakiska (50% off lift tickets) and Mount Norquay (2 for 1 lift tickets and rentals).
    • Look for hotel ski & stay deals. Several hotels in Canmore, Banff and Lake Louise bundle accommodation and lift tickets for great prices.

Hoodoo Creek Trail, Bighorn Backcountry

To see hoodoos, a cool cave, and great views of Abraham Lake and Mount Michener, head to Hoodoo Creek in Bighorn Backcountry! Although the hike is only 5.2 km return, allow at least half a day for exploring the cave and playing on the rocks.


Hoodoo Creek Trip Report
Guest Post By: Philip Lund, All Out Kids

We hiked up to the cave with our 4 and 6 year old who both did amazing, as Hoodoo Creek is a moderately difficult hike. I would recommend a minimum age of 6 years old, unless your children are used to big hikes.

Heading up the creek bed

I would also recommend hiking boots as it is a really rocky hike up the creek bed with a short scramble at the top to the cave.

Snack time at Hoodoo Creek

You have two options to do this trail: the creek bed or trail along the right bank. We hiked up the trail and came back straight down the creek bed. The trail bypasses more difficult parts of the creek, but in other parts, the creek is easier, so you can choose your own adventure.

Lots of rocks to climb over

The trail brings you back to the creekbed right before the hoodoos.

After the hoodoos, the canyon narrows dramatically. Continue through the creekbed until you get to a fork in the stream at the top of the valley. The cave is on the right side. It's a steep 50 m scramble (4-5 minutes) to get up there, but it's worth it!

We returned via the creek bed and were able to keep our feet dry by hopping in and out of the creek bed.

All in all, it was a fun hike through some really cool rock formations with the added bonus of a cave and beautiful view!

Know Before You Go

  • JP Fortin at Pursuit Adventures recommends avoiding this trail on rainy days as there is a risk of flash flooding in narrow parts of the canyon (upper reaches). 
  • We found a few ticks so make sure to do a tick check as usual. For tick safety tips, see this post: 5 Myths About Ticks & Tick Safety Tips.

Distance: 5.2 km
Elevation Gain: 400 m
Target age: 6+
Time: Allow 4-5 hours with kids (including lunch and snack breaks)
