Beautiful trail in the middle of the city!

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.

Great for a walk with the dog. Super easy.

Nice loop for a trail run, but it’s clear that the city has been neglecting the park; there is a lot of garbage along the trail with some areas that feel like hurdles. Also, no one has been restocking the hand sanitizer in the restroom.

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.

Lots of waterfowl and owls

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.

Such a cute place! It’s nice to not have to go to far for a little bit of the “outdoors” the benches all along the walk were nice! You could sit and have a snack and enjoy the scenery!

great for dog lovers

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

Took the kids not many birds but lots of deer and very serene. Great for mindful walking.

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 did this trail with my son, stayed one night in Calgary and found an easier one to walk. Nice one and very easy!

I did the whole trail by walking.

It is beautiful but quite long.

Next time, I will get the bike an sunscreen!

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

Nice views of downtown but windy as heck up on the hill. Very short, but there is some nifty information boards and lots of doggos to be spotted.

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

Gorgeous family friendly trails great for trail strollers & balance bikes. Follow the trails alongside the river

I walk about 5 hours. total is 18.5km.

walking with friends and fam.... what a wonderful day

Beautiful spot, tons of different playgrounds, and the neatest part was watching the CP rail trains go by! The river is beautiful and the trail is really well maintained. Great for kids!

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.

Easy even for kids as well

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