    The Sheep River area is the gateway to Kananaskis ( also known as the cowboy trail) - a beautiful small two lane "highway" more like country road to some of the most beautiful back country there is. If you take hwy 546 west of Turner Valley you will come across lots of camping sites, hiking trails that are both for foot and horse traffic and actual horse ranches that will take you into the mountains for a few hours to a few days.

    The hiking is free and there is a ranger station that will outfit you with a map but all the trails loop around so you can't get totally lost. You can also stop into the tourist info center in Turner Valley and they will give you directions.

    This place is a warm coffee stop that has a wood burning stove in it. A perfect place to get a coffee, breakfast or lunch and warm up. The staff is friendly and inviting and the coffee comes with a refill so don't worry that you paid $2.35 for a cup.

    Favorite Dish: Try the dark roast. Yum. They also are one of the only places to get a greasy spoon breakfast and a slice of cake.

    They are open 7 days a week from 7-3pm and on Sundays 7:30-2:30.

    Check out the friendship trail for some awesome chances at seeing wildlife up close and personal. You can see deer, hawks, eagles and gophers.

    It starts up along the parkway from Turner Valley at the 4 way stop and follows the highway to Black Diamond. Aprox 3-4km.
