Map Coverage

The Bragg Creek & Sheep Valley map covers a large chunk of the eastern portion of Alberta’s Kananaskis Country. The map centres on the Elbow Valley, which is accessed from the village of Bragg Creek, a short drive southwest of Calgary. It extends coverage north from the Sheep Valley, where the Highwood & Cataract Creek map leaves off, and extends as far north as Sibbald Flats, south of the Trans-Canada Highway.

It includes hiking, biking and equestrian trails beginning from the west end of West Bragg Creek Road, along the length of Highway 66, in Sibbald Flats, and throughout the McLean Creek Public Land Use Area west of Millarville. Popular hiking and biking trails covered on the Bragg Creek & Sheep Valley map include Elbow Falls, Prairie Mountain, Fullerton Loop, Moose Mountain, Sulphur Springs, Nihahi Ridge, Powderface Ridge, Jumpingpound Ridge, Cox Hill, Sheep River Falls, Volcano Ridge, Ole Buck Loop and Deer Ridge.

The complete Elbow Loop Trail and the west end of the Sheep Valley is covered on a 1:100,000-scale inset map on the back of this map. Another inset on the back of the map gives more detail to Little Elbow Campground, at the west end of Highway 66.
