Powerhouse Trail

Project Status


The "Powerhouse Trail" (yet to be named) is open as of Summer 2020 after a successful season of trail nights organized by CAMBA and the Town of Canmore.

About the Project


The to be named trail is a short 160 meters black rated downhill trail running roughly parallel to the Legacy Trail switchbacks located beside the TransAlta Powerhouse. The concept for the trail was developed by the Town of Canmore in conjunction with Matt Hadley (McElhanney). In the the Fall of 2019 CAMBA was approached to join the project and develop the detailed design and construction. In the Spring of 2020 CAMBA started running organized trail days resulting in a complete trail by the end of Summer 2020.
