This hike is great for almost everyone.(mobility issues would make this hike non-doable) There are water falls, and the trail is fairly even. The larches are absolutely beautiful with the sun on them. Couldn't stop taking pictures. Highly recommend this hike, but get there early...More

Nice trails, super close to NW Calgary but you still feel like you get away. Dogs must be on leash and everything is well marked

I'd forgotten how pretty this park is! Walk along the little creek (great for little kids to wade) and do the short and easy hike through the woods. It does get a little steep in one spot. Lots of little waterfalls and interesting rock formations....More

Pack the bugspray and a picnic and you're set for a few hours. Great creek and waterfalls to check out. Short, easy hike for young kids. Very close to Airdrie, Cochrane and NW Calgary. Cell service ends at the turn off from the highway so...More
