Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area
The Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area (ASCCA) is a 4,800 acre day-use, natural area. Located south west of Calgary off of Highway 22X, it was donated to the Province of Alberta by Ann and Sandy Cross in 1987. With over 20 km of scenic trails, it is open daily from 4:00 am - 11 pm, year round. We do not allow dogs, bikes or skiing. Visitors can sign in at a hiker kiosk which is located adjacent to the lower parking lot. Larger groups are asked to book ahead of time on our website. The ASCCA runs summer day-camps, school programs and community conservation learning events, such as our annual Star Night with the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (RASC)”.
The Cross Conservation Area is dedicated to:
protecting habitat and providing space for native species of wildlife;
offering conservation education programs (particularly to youth) without jeopardizing wildlife and habitat, and
managing human use of the ASCCA through entry by registration only.
