Photograph Wedge Pond

0.25 Miles Total - 10 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Joseph Gulizia

A short walk takes you to an epic reflection in the Canadian Rockies!

Just off Highway 1 in Kananaskis Country is a beautiful pond that makes for a wonderful spot to enjoy the first light on the Canadian Rockies. Bring warm clothes as this place can be especially cold. Don't forget a camera and a blanket. I recommend going for sunrise as this is when the lighting is the best. You will also have a better chance at having no wind for the optimal reflection.

Wedge Pond is super easy to get to. From Highway 1 follow signs for the Mt. Kidd RV Park, on Kananaskis Trail. Just past the RV park you will see a sign telling you to turn left into the Wedge Pond parking lot. From there park your car and follow the short trail to the water's edge. 

Enjoy the views, and as always please pack out everything you brought with you!

Overall rating: 

Simple yet great photography spot.

This is a very accessible pond and solitude may not be found as there will likely be a good bunch of other photographers. It is however a great photography location as on calm mornings the small pond offers a mirrored reflection of Kidd Peak on the far side of the pond. In the fall, yellow trees line the banks of the pond as well.
