The only public access point to Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park is from Glenbow Road, off of Highway #1A. From our main parking lot, follow the signs and pathways to the Visitor Centre or one of the map kiosks.

Was a nice walk, groomed and paved trails. Dog friendly. Not my cup of tea but was nice afternoon outing.

I love running the path along the stream to see the grandfather tree and looping back to hit the hill. Great place for trail running

Did this with my daughters and our dog over the weekend. It was a nice walk with a few small elevation changes with most of the change as you leave / come back to the trail head / parking lot. Kid and dog friendly with nice views of the countryside and the mountains if on a clear day.

Beautiful but hot and wide open.

Trails are nice but partly closed due to some cattle guy who drives down the path FAST with his caste trailer without any regard for bikers WTF?

Great set of trails 15 mins west of the city. Best in spring or fall or early morning or evening in the summer. Our fave place for an evening hike for those looong days of summer. Little shade during hot summer days, and NO water sources. Always something different each season. Still a working ranch so some trails may be closed on different days.

Just took my two dogs with my sister, awesome trail, lots of up and down. Took us about 2 hours to do the longer trail and loop around. Great little hike if you don't have the whole day to be out! Went on a whim and did not wear the proper attire but there is a paved path as well as the trail.

I enjoyed this one a lot - such pretty habitat in full autumn splendour. A good moderate work out. There are mo water taps, so don't forget your bottle!

Not impressed

Very pretty landscape. Mountains, prairies, cattle, CP rail trains, River, trees, wild life… Pretty much everything Alberta has to offer all in one spot. Pathways are all gravel or paved so I would describe it as more of a walk than a hike.
