Over twenty kilometers of trails wind through the Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area (ASCCA). Four lookouts provide spectacular views of the surrounding foothills. The Chevron Aspen Trail and the Fescue Trail are self-guided interpretive walks with education stations highlighting species found on the land.

Note: We are currently updating our trail map.  We have laminated trail maps for visitors located in the Welcome Kiosk that you are welcome to use during your hike as well as extra copies in Belvedere House.  Please return the laminated maps to the Kiosk after your visit.

Please read our guidelines before you book your hike to the ASCCA.
