Coral Creek Canyon Guided Hike

This hike takes us along two narrow canyons: the Coral Creek Canyon and the Cline River Canyon. We take our time walking along them to enjoy the views and surrounding mountains.

This is a moderate hike with some short steep sections along the way.  The hike is approximately 8 km long with an elevation gain of 350 metres.

This hike appeals most to curious adventurers who are relatively new to hiking but who appreciate getting away from the crowds. They are looking for an opportunity to connect with the area and slow down in a more quiet area of Abraham Lake.
