It’s an easy trail. Trail is flat. There’s well established bike lane, very nice to bike along. Best trail is on the west side, east side is just walking on city roads and service road next to the highway.

There's some free parking close to the trail beside the Heritage Park Museum. I walked this trail today, took me 4 hours. It's paved all the way. There are some short sections that are icy, no need for crampons if you hold onto the railings as you enter downhill in the Weaselhead Flats section. It's a great spot in the heart of the city and a perfect warm up for the mountains. The only downside is the detour that's parallel to the highway Glenmore Trail.

Great nature walk right in the city. Paved paths the entire way with cutoffs for more “natural” paths. Lots of access to the water. Only rated 3 stars because a good chunk of the trail runs right along a highway.. the fumes and traffic took away from the peaceful experience just a bit! Still an amazing trail system right in the city!

The walk here was absolutely amazing. What better way to share your day with a loved one than walking along the path in the fall ? After we sat on the docks and enjoyed each others time, eating snacks and watching the sailboats. Highly recommend for anyone to get out and enjoy this welcoming park. Alot of bikes and people but still fun. Looking forward to our next visit.

Another nice leisurely ride and a great trail to introduce someone new to cycling. Has some minor elevation gain, but nothing too serious - biggest gain is coming out of Weaselhead Nature Park area and the approach to Foothills Hospital when traveling in a clockwise direction. A very pleasant ride and one that will only take 1 to 1.5 hours to complete.

I took my 1.5 year old son with his Thule bike trailer. I am not fit or active in any consistent way and this trail was definitely advanced for me but the pride I felt in doing the full loop (from north glen more park, clockwise) was amazing. The views are beautiful and it took me roughly 2.5 hours to complete. It was a hot day but the no shade areas weren’t so bad.

We rode our bikes clockwise on the trail experiencing 3 steep inclines. The path was beautifully created through a mature deciduous forest that was starting to show its fall colours. The views of the foothills and mountains and the water made for great views. Stopped at Heritage Park for coffee. Will do again for sure!

Completed on bike as a nice evening out. A few big hills on either side of Weaselhead to keep in mind.

Police incident at the weaselhead flats bridge (evening of August 20) - several cop cars and the forensic truck! They must have found a DB. Haven’t read anything about it in the news yet.

Beautiful views especially during sunset. Great place to take dogs in the city but can be overcrowded during the weekends

Great ride today with the kids. Look forward to doing it again during the week to avoid foot traffic. Rode trail clockwise.

I love this trail as it is close to home and generally not over crowded. It’s great for cycling and very quiet in most sections, for an inner city path. I have biked it twice so far this week, even in the rain it’s enjoyable.
