Would have rated higher but for the mountain bikes

Well maintained. Relatively easy trial. Moderate climbs.

Couldn't find a great views. Just forest

Awesome hike, pups had a great time being able to run and explore off leash.
We went at 1PM on Monday during the long weekend and it was actually nice and only a few bikers passed by. Definitely will go again! We took Ranger Summit up and Strange Brew down.
Strange Brew was a little soggy / muddy through the grassy areas

Awesome trails, love that my pups can be off leash!
Great hike took Ranger summit up and came back down with Strange Brew trail.
Took about 2 hours (Can take longer if you complete the full loop)

Hiked the trail CC on Sunday. Lots of horse and cow muck on the trail but has the path is wide all avoidable. Still a few wet spots that were either avoidable or that you could leap over.

Most of the hike is in the trees which makes for a nice hike when it's hot but not the most scenic hike. There are some great valley shots giving a great vista and a couple of open meadows which made the hill climbs worth grunting through.

If you're cycling there's one tree that's leaning/fallen that will skim your helmet as you come to the bottom of the hill. Stay right and you should be able to duck it with no problem. Its on a blind corner and below a another short hill so it can sneak up on you if you're going with any type of speed.

A nice chill hike. Prairie creek is the
nicer of the two. I’d suggest doing it counter clockwise.

Lots of animal poop.. was ok otherwise not to hard..

I would rate this trail as "Easy" instead of Moderate. While there are a few sections of elevation gain/loss, the majority of it is relatively flat. I'm sure the open fields the trail crosses are lovely during wild flower season; however, right now it's all cow pies along with horse "droppings" on the Powderface trail. Though lacking in scenic mountain vistas, the trail does provide a good stroll through the woods.

Nice easy hike to start the year. Took us two hours with two families including 5 kids ages 2.5-7. I’d suggest taking the route counterclockwise makes the incline more gradual. Some mud still but the kids enjoyed the challenges that created.

We did Telephone Trail up to Long Distance trail and took that down to Reconnect and ended with Braggin Rights. Took us about 4 hours 45 minutes including stopping for a break for about 20 ish minutes.
The ground was soft in places and icy/snowy in others but overall it was pretty dry.

Was on the trail for 2 km to use between sugar momma and sugar daddy. Good switchbacks.

Nice & Easy, but we should have done elbow trail first as it was slushy for the second half

still lots of compacted snow, then mud/slush sections, but easy to navigate with hiking boots...

Still have a lot of know at the Elbow trail

Did this last weekend with dogs. Absolutely beautiful hike. Nothing too challenging.

Went today and left the snowshoes in the car. Trail was well packed and with fresh snowfall there was no issues with mud or water as they warn about this late in the year.

A nice pretty walk. Not difficult but enough up and down that you still feel like you got a bit of a work out in.

A good steady easy hike. I quite enjoyed this one. Lots of snow on ground but trail packed down and easily walkable. A couple spots to stop and have a light lunch. Ample parking lot.

Hello All Trails.

"The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from June until October."

Actually this trail is highly used as a popular x country ski trail all winter long. It is maintained by a group of local hard working volunteers and the generous donations of those who use it. It's one of the best well maintained short x country ski trails 45 minutes from Calgary.

This trail is an intermediate level for those who've x country skied and would not recommend for those who are new to skiing.

Yesterday I had one of the best spring skis on this trail in near perfect weather and snow conditions with our later spring. Great to be able to ski as late as 6pm with the house of longer daylight.

• ~4hrs to complete. With the snow getting quite slushy I took a little longer than I think I would've been if it had been summer
• The recorded Trail on here is a little deceiving. On the way back instead of continuing to follow Telephone [South], it loops you back up through a connecting trail. I followed that one, which was good as I don't think there would've been any views continuing Telephone
• Bring LOTS of water, even for the winter. I wasn't thinking and only brought 25oz. Come summer I'd probably bring 50oz plus the bladder considering there are several unshaded points.
• Would've been nicer with company. A few points felt a bit long. Would not do again during the winter.

Nice groomed trails for cross country skiing.
Snow was great, we hooked up with a few other trails and did a loop!
Lots to explore in this area.

definitely needed snow shoes today (17th Mar 2018). Nice hike through trees. we went anti clockwise and it felt like it was uphill all the way! if you can find the trail to go clockwise from the car park that might seem a bit easier. Definately a hike thats worth the effort though

Nice short hike/snowshoe. No big mountain views. Didn’t need snowshoes (ironically) route packed down. Go early to avoid crowds on weekends.

A pleasant walk in the woods with some modest views.

The trailhead here has recently been improved with increased parking, signage and an outhouse.

Trail route is slightly modified as well between the trailhead and the Fullerton Loop junction as the trail no longer dips down to the Elbow River to join the 'pre-flood' route. No route finding issues and it avoids the area that was usually extremely icy in winter and spring.

We went counter-clockwise up Ranger Summit then down along Strange Brew/Boundary Ridge. Despite recent heavy snow, the trail was icy in several spots and the snow was thin in tree-covered areas. Lots of roots and rocks that took away from an otherwise enjoyable trek. Signage wasn't great to get onto the trail but very clear once you're there. Less traffic than the north side trails in this area but still fairly popular.

Great starter trail, family friendly. We went counterclockwise starting at the parking lot - first half is more uphill than second but nothing too much for first-timers. Quieter than the other nearby trails though still a bit busy.
