Good trail for walking and biking.

This is one of my favourite paths in Calgary - for some of it, you forget you're even in a city. My favourite part is through the Weaselhead area, my least favourite is along the causeway along Glenmore Trail - that brings you back to the fact you're in a city REALLY fast, with cars screaming past you at 80 to 100kmh. Thankfully once you're off that bridge and either into the neighbourhood to the west or near the hospital to the east, it settles back down. Lots of opportunities for photos, for rest breaks, even a snack at Glenmore Landing (lots of selections - McDonalds, Starbucks, Good Earth, Booster Juice to name a few) - it's a good 3-4 hour journey. It is definitely a busy path with bikers, runners and walkers, but it's worth the journey.
I am looking forward to when the dam deck is open to extend the walk - but that's a couple of years away!
It's a beautiful day for a walk, so off I go!

A nice Sunday walk. Trails were snowy and slushy but coming along nicely.

Nice views and a good walk. Still pretty snow covered in most spots and I found the on site maps a bit hard to figure out. The loop I took was about an hour walk :)

Nice place to walk the dog.

Great place to take your dog for an off leash walk or swim in the river.

Excellent trails for the evening weekday rides, not many places you can still hit the single track when you get off at 6PM. If you want single track and a forest like setting stay to the west end. The east end is pretty sparse.

Great little walk!

nice easy urban walk with great views of downtown and close to bars and restaurants

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

Went yesterday after the snow storm mid week. The snow was deeper than usual. Good option when getting out to the mountains isn't possible. My dog loves it too.

Good photography walk. Lots of deer, beaver, and birds.

Good walking or running circuit. Good hills for cardio.

Nice and easy, pretty lake. Easy to find and access.

Huge amazing off leash park, totally fenced. The river is near by but there are gates to keep your dog from the water if you want to keep them dry. Always packed with dogs, but otherwise it’s my favourite park.

Beautiful park on a very nice lake. Always friendly people around and lots of friendly dogs in the off leash area!

This place is beautiful when the leaves are changing and all through the spring months. There are more trails that you can branch off on and feel deep in nature without having to drive far

Better for bikes than walking with kids. Bike traffic can be heavy on weekends and rush hour times. very nice for inner city walk during quiet times

What a great place. From the blvd, it looks like a hill, but from a top: it's so much more ...

Nice in town hike. We took some of the dirt pathways for a little more adventure/interest. I feel like there are so many routes through the park that every visit could be unique!
