Just like that you are in the midst of a beautiful Rocky Mountain foothills setting. Lots of wildlife in the morning and early evening. A great part of the world class bike path system throughout Calgary.

What a gem in the city! Beautiful scenery and wildlife. We saw beavers building damns swimming up the river. Lots of trails with historical information. Easy to follow maps.
