Absolutely stunning views of the foothills! Did this hike with 4 children 8-10 and our dog. We will have to go back to complete all the trails in this beautiful park. We had a blast, felt like we were in Vancouver and the wildlife was amazing. Saw many butterflies, deer, flowers, creeks, abandoned cabins, (my kids favorite) and breath taking scenery. We will be back!

This was a lovely trail clear of all snow. A few wet spots. The perimeter route my gps marked as 8km. Well maintained. The dog loved it.

A great shady hike ideal for a hot summer's day with a good mix of up hill, down hill and flat sections. Take the short hike to the viewpoint on the back section for some great views of the Rockies from the ridge.

Great little trail system and not far from Calgary. The trails were packed down but we snowshoed anyway.

Did this trail with my pregnant wife, recovering dog from surgery, and 4 year old son. Very family friendly, but still somewhat hidden from the crowds. Great forest setting.

This trail was a lovely walk. At this time one of year the ground had every condition - dry, boggy, snow and icy. We didn't need crampons, our waterproof walking boots were perfect for this trail.

Once on the trail we took the right turning to begin and I'm glad we did. Taking the trail this way meant the incline was a challenge but not too difficult. The lookout point is beautiful.

We got round the full trail in about 2 hours, seeing only 1 other person the entire time.

There are toilets in the car park but no rubbish bin!

Lots of mud/snow right now (April) but I really enjoyed the trail! Really accessible for newbies, the woods felt lovely, and the occasional view. All that, and it's just an added bonus it's a 5 minutes drive from my home!

April 19,2017. Trail is dry for the most part but there are quite a few mud, snow and ice patches. We could bypass most of it and my mom used her hiking poles. Crocuses are blooming at the lookout and all in all It was the perfect hike, with a dog within 30 minutes of the city. Can't wait to go back with our kids!

Nice little 7kms with some nice view points. Very icy, wear spikes until no snow, lots of shade and icy steep bits. Lots of variables for trail lengths and would be a good snow shoe with more snow.
