Easy- long(ish) but could be done by almost anyone. There’s minor elevation gain, some rolling hills, it’s a little boggy in areas (so make sure you have water resistant shoes)- but a pretty hike for all abilities.

Park in North side of West Bragg Creek Parking lot on the most western side. Walk on service road starting at west side of parking lot. Walk for a km or so and come to a trail interesection that states Moose connector on sign posts on both right and left sides of path. GO RIGHT and it takes you right to Moose Meadow loop.

The entire hike and loop is about 7 km and is easy with some steep inclines. Saw 2 deer, lots of butterflies and birds. Very few other hikers or bikers. A few creeks and ponds that were pretty. Meadow was gorgeous. Good hike, but wouldn't be super interesting for kids.
We took left turn at moose connector interesection at beginning in error and added 7 more kms to the hike with lots of other small meadows. Was a nice addition to hike, but not as nice as the loop. Many signs, use them if you turn left first. Would go again!

Hello All Trails.

"The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from June until October."

Actually this trail is highly used as a popular x country ski trail all winter long. It is maintained by a group of local hard working volunteers and the generous donations of those who use it. It's one of the best well maintained short x country ski trails 45 minutes from Calgary.

This trail is an intermediate level for those who've x country skied and would not recommend for those who are new to skiing.

Yesterday I had one of the best spring skis on this trail in near perfect weather and snow conditions with our later spring. Great to be able to ski as late as 6pm with the house of longer daylight.
