nice hike but confusing because we couldn't see signs to find trails that weren't paved. beautiful view at the store!

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!

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.

Nice little hike between Calgary and Cochrane. Consists of more than one Trail. All very well marked and groomed. Good for either hiking or biking with paved and gravel paths.
