My husband and I have found there are a million adventures when you hit the bike paths. Beautiful parks, the zoo from the outside, festivals and markets are can be found on the pathway system in Calgary.

Excellent network of trails/paths which far exceeds most cities. You can ride/walk for kilometres on end with out touching a road.

Best paths are along the Rivers as there is some great views. Unfortunately there is very little commercial development so you can't even grab a coffee.

Calgary has one of the best pathways systems of any major city. As a runner who has trained for a number of marathons, I really appreciate the variety of pathways around the city. The city does an excellent job of keeping these pathways clear all winter long so that everyone can enjoy the beauty of the outdoors.

Well, I live in Calgary and I absolutely love it. I have traveled quite a bit and there is just nothing like Calgary in my opinion. Its gorgeous pathways differ in scenery and will take you absolutely anywhere within the city and other provincial parks.

With hundreds of km of pathways, paved, gravel or dirt, the exploration is endless all over the city. From huge parks with dozens of linked paths, like Fish Creek or Nose Hill, to smaller, treed parks like Griffith Woods, there is something suitable for everyone. I personally lead a Healthy Monday Lunch & Walk EVERY Monday, and start from various... More

The pathways go where the roads do not, especially through the natural areas. These offer the main on-foot access to Nose Hill and the forested slopes by and above the river. This is where the city gets its livability ratings.

It is great way to bike, come to the park, be close to the river. You can enjoy all these in this spot. It can get crowded in hot summer or where there are festivals around, but it is what makes it vibrant. It needs more food shops since Eau Claire Mall is very limited.

Calgary has an extensive off road pathway system winding its way through lush foliage, along rivers, and through unique neighborhoods. The pathways are maintained throughout the year, making it accessible during any season. The pathway is divided for folks walking or folks biking, blading, or boarding, making it safe for everyone. Great way to explore the city!

By day or by night, the pathway system in Calgary is a delight. Well constructed and maintained, beautifully lit at night, they offer an excellent, safe way to explore.
