A cute and easy hike along side the springs. Lots of bugs during the summer so don't forget the bug spray! There are also some beautiful birds showing up every now and then throughout the hike.

This area gets very busy on the weekends. I'm fortunate to live in north Calgary so I love taking the kids up for a quick visit and fresh air on a week nights (it's not as busy). The kids love exploring the area and teepees others made ! I think this trail is great if you have young children.

Lots if fun. Been a few times and have taken our 4 yr old, 2.5 year old and 6 month old. I wore the baby (definitely not a stroller friendly trail) and the kids walked. Took us about an hour when we walked it and didn't stop much and about 2 when we let the kids explore and took pictures etc. Really beautiful. Busy on weekends but still worth it.

Don't expect the "sanctity of nature" here. The word that comes to mind is "infested". WAY too many people here. Nice trail, close to home for a quick drive and walk. maybe a family pic-nic but the landscape is heavily damaged from overuse. If Parks Alberta has any sense, they will begin to close and rehabilitate portions of this beautiful area on a rotating basis.

Very short but nice. Good for young families. If you are in NW Calgary it's close. Spend an hour walking have a nice picnic.

Pretty short and a lot of people. But it's close to nw Calgary and is a nice walk/hike on some well maintained trails.
