Good for a run.

Living across from the lake has its advantages. Great place for a jog or a walk. Also a good place if you want to train for endurance hiking.

This was a walking trail, it is rated very poorly. The hard rating is where hiking ends and becomes an easy scrambling.

It is a nice, walk.

Nice for bike paths , took my 6 year old and she loved it .
Very busy path on weekends.

Short very very easy walk

Meh, considering its built on the garbage dump, I guess it's not that bad if you dont look too close. Good place to bring the pooch for a run.

It's a decent city trail for a walk. There are several social trails that take off from the main trail and there is construction of a water treatment plant that has closed off some of the trail so navigation is a little challenging. If you're just out for a walk along the river and golf course, it's fine.

A great short nature walk/hike right in downtown Calgary.

Great for being right in the city.

I love it

So much fun, mostly tree covered so if it’s really sunny out you’re not boiling. The stairs really get your heart pumping!

Nice trail!! Wish we knew part of it was closed.......still a decent hike before we had to turn around.

Beautiful trail in the middle of the city!

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.

Lots of waterfowl and owls

A walk in the park

great for dog lovers

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

Nice trail, well maintained. Better signage system or more maps along the trial would be nice. How ever I will definitely do this one again.

go into the river cafe to drink a coffee.

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

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

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

Decent hike. Legs of fire stairs and occasional scenic river views were a plus. Mostly was just a walk thru the forest, not anything special.

It's a short beautiful paved trail. I was hoping it was single track. At the time it was under construction at one section.

Perhaps signs informing people of closures and detours could be posted. We did come across one and only one after an hour of stumbling about in the woods being eaten alive by mosquitos. The trails that worked were beautiful but half of my hike was so frustrating that I will never return.
