I did the whole trail by walking.

It is beautiful but quite long.

Next time, I will get the bike an sunscreen!

Great place to take the kids for a walk or bike. Paved and once away from Main roads it's gorgeous. Good for inner city escape

Glenmore Reservoir provides a great loop pathway- perfect for those mid-to-longer half-marathon training runs. Given it's all on pavement, I wouldn't classify this path as "trail running" but that's the only running-related activity option listed by AllTrails. Love the variety of scenery and occasional hills. While not nearly as fast to run around as to cycle, running the loop cuts the time almost in half versus walking it. So if you're short on time or want a great place to train for a race, Glenmore is it.

I walked today for the first time.It is beautiful but to finish the trail you must be be prepared to wear water and a sandwich or snack cause the walk it takes around 4 hours.

I will choose next time to do it by bike.

This is one of my favourite paths in Calgary - for some of it, you forget you're even in a city. My favourite part is through the Weaselhead area, my least favourite is along the causeway along Glenmore Trail - that brings you back to the fact you're in a city REALLY fast, with cars screaming past you at 80 to 100kmh. Thankfully once you're off that bridge and either into the neighbourhood to the west or near the hospital to the east, it settles back down. Lots of opportunities for photos, for rest breaks, even a snack at Glenmore Landing (lots of selections - McDonalds, Starbucks, Good Earth, Booster Juice to name a few) - it's a good 3-4 hour journey. It is definitely a busy path with bikers, runners and walkers, but it's worth the journey.
I am looking forward to when the dam deck is open to extend the walk - but that's a couple of years away!
It's a beautiful day for a walk, so off I go!

Was a good trail, the view at the top of the hill once you pass over weasel head conservation is lovely. Plenty of place to sit and rest. Have biked it twice now and canoed the reservoir in the same day!

A good loop to ride although it can become very congested during the day so pick your time wisely if you hope to do a quick lap. 1 good hill in either direction to get the heart pumping but beyond that it is mostly flat. Make sure you have a bell on your bike to notify the other walkers, runners and bikers if you plan to do a lot of passing.

Nice ~3 hour easy walk on the pavement above the shoreline around the reservoir. One can also walk along the water as well. We took a "refreshment" detour to McDonald's at Glenmore Landings - something to keep in mind.

Did the whole loop, there was ice only on one small part. A long but easy ride with lots to see. The path through the wetlands was really interesting, excited to see it when there's better weather. The trail was pretty busy.

It is quite long. Really nice ride though. You can keep going and pass through Weasel head park. A little hard if you decide to do that but still a good ride.

We biked this trail. Fantastic ride. Not too easy yet not too difficult. Not a fan of the ride along Glenmore Trail.
