Castle Parks hiking view

"Wow!!! Just spent two days with Uplift Adventures camping in the backcountry! Heather and Lisa's extensive knowledge of the backcountry was phenomenal! I learned SO much about safety, best practice, hiking tips and more. Heather was a nature guidebook pointing out flowers, terrain, trees, animal prints, etc. Never was a question unanswered! It was an amazing experience! I highly recommend Uplift Adventures! If you are planning a trip in Crowsnest TAKE Heather!!!"
