As a guest on our lands, your safety and comfort is important to CTFN. Please read the following information to ensure that your Montana Mountain experience is a positive one.
Choose Your Routes Conservatively
Many of the trails on Montana Mountain are rocky, rooty, and technical in nature. Please consider a “warm up” lap on easier trail to gauge your skills in relation to the trail difficulty ratings. A list of Recommended Routes is available at the Visitor Information Centre in Carcross.
Be Prepared And Play Safe
You are venturing into a wilderness environment. There is no mountain patrol and rescue may not be available. Weather and conditions can change rapidly. You may encounter wildlife, including bears. We recommend that you:
- Carry extra clothing, food and water;
- Hike or bike with others;
- Pack a trail map and take note of signage;
- Carry a First Aid kit and bear spray (and know how to use them!);
- Let someone know your whereabouts and anticipated time of return;
- Take spare tubes and/or patch kit and bike pump.
Special Note for Mountain Bikers
Mountain biking is a high risk sport. To minimize your risk:
- Always wear a helmet
- Wear protective armour if possible
- Inspect technical trail features/structures prior to riding
- Ride within your ability level
