Explore the most popular mountain biking trails near Calgary with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

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.

This is a great loop to do with the family on bike or foot. Lots to see and do along the way. One of Calgary’s gems. If you want to add a little more of a hike, go back into the trees west of the Stoney bridge.

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.

Glenmore Reservoir provides a great loop pathway- perfect for those mid-to-longer half-marathon training runs. Given it's all on pavement, I wouldn't classify this path as "trail running" but that's the only running-related activity option listed by AllTrails. Love the variety of scenery and occasional hills. While not nearly as fast to run around as to cycle, running the loop cuts the time almost in half versus walking it. So if you're short on time or want a great place to train for a race, Glenmore is it.

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

Huge park. Lots of room for the dog to play around.

Huge park! I always try to pick a different entrance each time I take my dog. He loves it there. Nice city views from one side of the hill and mountain views from the other side. I prefer it when it's got more colours in the spring and summer. Small dogs seem to go missing in the tall grass a lot here so do be careful. They are often found but lots of coyotes in the area to be aware of as well.

Faire le tour complet avec un enfant de 7 ans ça prend 4 heures! Belle randonnée!!

I spent a week here I. The fall as the colors changed. There were many other areas to explore and felt close to the mountains without the distance.

I walked today for the first time.It is beautiful but to finish the trail you must be be prepared to wear water and a sandwich or snack cause the walk it takes around 4 hours.

I will choose next time to do it by bike.

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!
