Quaite Valley is a short trip from Calgary, but offers a great backcountry experience. Best of all, there is a hike to a lookout that is stunning.

When I was volunteering for Cub Scouts, we did a "Big Adventure" every year. Throughout the year we would do camps and training in preparation of a backcountry trip to close the year. Quaite Valley was one of these trips!
