Elk lakes/ Height of the Rockies backpack trip.

Start at elk pass trailhead near Kananaskis lakes.

day 1: bike to B.C. border, then hike west elk pass to upper elk lake.
Fish upper and lower Aosta lakes, camp at upper elk lake.

day 2: hike over unamed pass to Cadorna lake.
Fish Cadorna lake and Cadorna creek (check the regs!),
camp at confluence of Abruzzi and Cadorna creeks

day 3: leave camp setup and day hike to Abruzzi lake.
Fish Abruzzi lake (there's a biffy and a bearpole at the lake but there's no firewood for miles)
same camp as night 2

day 4: hike out; down Cadorna creek and up the elk river logging road to the bikes
(hitching a ride the 16km up the elk river logging road should be no problem).

I can second this.

I never got to Abruzzi but will at some point. The name of the pass is called Coral Pass. Funny we hitched a ride as well after getting back to the road, and got a beer! Otherwise that would have been a long walk up the road.

I know some people do a longer trip over Pass of the Clouds (past Abruzzi) and up to Limestone lakes then over to North Kananaskis pass. I plan to do this in the future. Not much for fishing between Abruzzi and Maude Lake. Tipperary Lake has no fish. Tried that.
