A lovely walk in north Edmonton with lots of birds to watch. It takes about 30 min to walk around at a medium pace.

It can be quite busy with strollers on nice days but very approachable for families.

Beautiful area in the city and good for an easy walk. Saw deer, ducks and geese. Should be rated as easy though, not moderate.

very easy, but beautiful trail. there are some repairs on the bridge on the start/end spot. the bridge is closed, so no way to get there from the bow valley trail side.

This is a path that goes around the pond in a neighbourhood of Calgary. Takes about 40 mins from start to finish if you do a complete loop. No shade on hot days.

Easy hike,without the need of crampons. Due that it is short, my friends and I have extended the trail until bow river close to the golf area and adding in our way back a visit around the coal bridge and the view of an hydro plant.

cant go during winter

It was extremely easy. We did this with our dog and in the middle of winter and she seemed to enjoy it. It was like taking a walk at the park.

Saw a herd of deer...it was a nice walk.

Very pleasant snowshoeing circuit. Fairly easy for kids and not busy at all. Great views once you get to Marl Lake.

Beautiful area for hiking. Lots of opportunities to put some mileage on your hiking shoes! I’d recommend carrying crampons in the winter, as there can be icy patches throughout the ranch’s trails. I’ve never been here in all the time I’ve lived in Calgary, but I’ve used it 3 days in a row, and logged 35 kilometres! I can’t wait to see it in the summer, and the river has thawed!

Great trail system close to home, great biking and hiking opportunities. Great views of the river and railway... Depending on the time of year you'll also see the cows grazing in the fields.

Was a nice walk, groomed and paved trails. Dog friendly. Not my cup of tea but was nice afternoon outing.

Fantastic views all the way along the trail. Trail is paved and perfect for walking, biking, strollers, wheelchairs etc. You can take the path from near the park entrance, all the way down into the townsite.

I love running the path along the stream to see the grandfather tree and looping back to hit the hill. Great place for trail running

this is great views from the top and a good workout!

Scenic stroll... great little walk after exploring downtown Canmore. Very easy.

Great for being right outside the door good place to walk the dog and meet the friendly people of Mackenzie town

Great day for an in the city adventure. Great for all ages and dogs

Paved path for about 1km. Then a dirt road. Great for a quick family bike ride or family hike. Easy, dry with limited views of the lake.

Easy stroll with little to no elevation. Make sure you go right to the end of the trail so you can see the river. We were there at the end of August and the river bend was dried up so we walked along it until we got to the main stream and soaked our feet in the freezing cold water.

Great views, and nice walk for those visiting in the town of Canmore. Great for Elderly couples. But the sound of nature mixed with the sound of nearby construction let's you know you're in a town. Buildings being built right next to it?? Just takes away from it. I wouldn't go out of my way JUST to check this out.

To much construction. Cool boardwalk but not for me.

It's a short beautiful paved trail. I was hoping it was single track. At the time it was under construction at one section.

Did this with my daughters and our dog over the weekend. It was a nice walk with a few small elevation changes with most of the change as you leave / come back to the trail head / parking lot. Kid and dog friendly with nice views of the countryside and the mountains if on a clear day.

A nice walking trail - the mosquitoes were pretty bad so I'd definitely bring bug spray. There was a grizzly in the area at the time we were just coming back and they were closing off the trail.
I like that it's a longer paved trail - my son who is in a wheelchair loved being included in one of our hikes and it was easy to push him - not much of an elevation gain.

Beautiful but hot and wide open.

Trails are nice but partly closed due to some cattle guy who drives down the path FAST with his caste trailer without any regard for bikers WTF?
