Weg im Winter gut machbar, bis auf wenige Stellen wo zugefrorene Flüsse über dem Weg liegen. Kurze Anstiege und einige aussichtspunkte. Laut Tafel im Winter geschlossem, Tore standen offen und andere Wanderer anzutreffen

This trail is super fun with lots of wooden features like rope bridges and stairs. Perfect for an evening walk to go on to get your heart rate going slightly.

Good family hike for being in the city. My 4 and 5 year old hiked it no problem.

Very muddy today. Took a few slips and spills! But will definitely come back when things have dried up a bit.

Dry. Some stairs need work. Did whole trail and loved it. Like being out of the city. Dense forest in the city.

Only did half of this trail. Really slippery in sections and some of my party was nervous about the railings, but I would attempt the full trail again. Trail is very narrow at times so when you have to pass others on the trail, not a lot of room to move over. Nice that it’s so close.

A cool hike in the city with natural shade provided some steep sections and mosquitoes in the forest a nice alternative if you don’t want to drive to k- country.

Spectacular and stunning little trail that so few people know about. 10 or 20 minutes away from just about anywhere in the city. But feels like you are out in the middle of the mountains.

Absolutely killer trail run - lots of stairs, but such a good workout and hidden away from the city it's like you're in the mountains. Definitely recommend.

Beautiful trail - you forget you're in the city! It took about 45 min each way and wasn't too busy (Tuesday morning though) Very clean, although there were some washed out muddy bits and lots of mosquitos in the second half of the trail. My pup LOVED this trail

Loved this for the trees, the water, train tracks and berries. Great escape within city limits.

Great trail, hard to believe it is in the middle of the City. Similar to a mountain trail.

I can't believe this is the middle of the city, you get tiny muddy Creek crossings, steps, up and downhills, amazing gem to take the kids on an adventure without leaving Calgary!
