Great walk, bike, scoot, rollerskate, etc. Plenty of paved and offshoot bike/hike trails. Busy pathways for a variety of users. Great for all abilities and age levels, do what you can do. Lovely views of the reservoir.

Great for a quick bike ride near my house. It can be beautiful in some places. The trick is to avoid the crowds (sunny Sunday afternoons for example); go early or later in the day.

great one to do with the dog when have limited time and need to stay local...

Love this walk. I’ve done it 3 times twice in summer and once in fall. The best is in the fall is beautiful with all the leaves changing colours. Highly recommend.

Went looking to Mountain Bike, trails looked great for hiking but you’re better off going somewhere else for mountain biking. The short area for riding was pretty hard to find, a lot of bush.

Horribly laid out. Was following what I thought was the path and then checked the app and realized we were completely off the map. Used all of my data to stay on the map on the app but most of it was not a path and through tall grass. It had delightful paved and gravel paths throughout Nose Hill, but not on the 12.7 km route.

Enjoyed plants. Picked and ate some saskatoons.

Love this park. Spectacular views and each visit is unique. My dog loves it.

Nicely paved and maintained trail. Easiest to run the loop clockwise! Took me approximately 80min to run.

Summer or winter a good hike !

Honestly don’t walk it unless you’re prepared and it’s early in the day. The walk is very leisurely but is extremely long, expect around 4-5hrs to complete the walk. Gorgeous scenery.

Took the dog and it was great! A little narrow in some spots but nice views.

can complete in under an 1.5 hours on bike. I happen to live by this trail and love the far west end in weasel head. if you go off the paved road there is some great hidden gems and you don't even feel like you're in the city at some points. Once back on the paved trails it's a fairly busy area.

Beautiful view, right on the water, and super close to home... doesn’t get much better.

It was a great walk. Saw deer, ducks, bobcat. Very nice. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

great for kids! calming views. bring a bike, it's a large area and you'll want to see everything .

Calgary has a rare opportunity now that these slopes are being returned to the city as a park to maintain a piece of wild land in the city and for hiking / mountain bike trails to make an inner city tidal system (connecting with Beaumont & Tuscany) into a real legacy for our city.

I completed this trail on a weekday and I am glad I did as portions of this walk were quite busy with bikes, runners and walkers. The trail is a good length with some slight challenge for beginners-those wanting to challenge themselves with a distance hike as opposed to elevation.

I just love this trail! Fell a couple of times, but it was fun. I would recommend doing the trail, Safari Planet... if you’re ok with moderate mountain biking

I did the whole trail by walking.

It is beautiful but quite long.

Next time, I will get the bike an sunscreen!

Lovely trail. Beautiful flowers

Great place to take the kids for a walk or bike. Paved and once away from Main roads it's gorgeous. Good for inner city escape

This is an easy walk and lovely easy mountain bike trails through forest. Great area to introduce small children to biking and trail running. Take the trail leading from the bathroom building, that goes into the forest . Great 100-200m trails in there

Lovely single track bike trails. i’d rate easier because a beginner mountain biker or kid could do these. Such a gem inside the city. We went left after the bridge near elbow drive (not on trail) and wound up on a steep rooty climb up the ridge. Basically the more closely you follow (or ascend) the ridge the more technical trails you can hit up. Easier ones run along fish creek itself

I walk about 5 hours. total is 18.5km.

Hurry while it lasts

A grate ride, but most of the trails are being torn down so get riding.

Great hike! Had no idea Calgary had such an awesome hidden gem. It is definitely primarily for mountain bikers but great for hiking too. It was a good one to graduate from easy to moderate and so close to home! definitely recommend it as there are many different paths you can take.
