There's nothing like a run in the river valley. Or a walk, if that's more your scene. I can run the trails every day of the week and still find myself enjoying every second of it - from busy Sunday mornings to deserted Thursday nights. Can't get enough of the trail system. Especially the far reaches when you go out... More

If you like to walk in a huge city, you can. Many modern people are rude and the bikers are idiots but I just smile and enjoy it. Can't go wrong. One of the best things about Cowtown.

Calgary's pathways are one of its most positive features. They run along the river and are used for walking, running and biking. At lunch times the downtown pathways can be quite busy and it is useful that the walking/running paths are separated from the bike paths. For Calgarians they are fabulous, however, I wouldn't think that tourists would come to... More

Calgary does have great paths along the rivers. They are great to use for running and biking for people that live here or are visiting, but it is hardly a feature that a person would go out of their way to see.

The Calgary pathway system is great for exercise and fresh air. We walk parts of the pathways often and have biked on most of them branching out in all directions of the city. Great for getting to and from work by bike or using as an outdoor trainer to loose some extra pounds. Since some areas have been damaged or... More

I've heard Calgary has so many pathways as many of them used to be train track routes. Either way, I'm thankful for them! In summer there is no better place to go than for walks/runs/rollerblading/biking than paths along the river. There are drinking water fountains set up at the parks along the route, and bathrooms every few kilometers. There is... More

Snow fell the day before. The path was clear and the walk was beautiful and VERY SAFE! It was especially beautiful with all the Christmas lights.

I bike the 25km to work and back when I can, and the only way to do this safely is the bike path system. Normally not very busy early in the morning/evening, I really appreciate the system and the places you can travel on it. Only issue now is working around the areas closed due to flooding, but I'm sure... More

The path system is pretty good in Calgary. There are a few places to cross on the North side of the Bow River but for getting East to West in town it is a nice system. It is very nice in the summer when the trees are green. Some places along the path there are bumpy sections that need repair,... More
