It's fun if you are outdoor active!!!

I think the Calgary pathway system is great for walking and biking around the city, a lot of people tend to use it. Somtimes it is busy.

On our short stay in Calgary, we walked and biked these great paths. What an asset to a great city. We rented bikes in a small shop in Eau Claire and just took off down the pathway. They are very user friendly and loved the numerous bridges over the Bow River.

Calgary's pathway system is one of the jewels of the city. Offering access to a variety of different terrain, from flat riverside sidewalks to steep hill climbs, the trails offer easy access to recreate in Calgary's natural surroundings.

Great place to go for a run when you are in town...or a bike ride if you gave one, not sure if you can rent in this area. Close to the city...and sort of fresh air

Visiting Calgary for the first time, I was impressed with the wide, well-maintained trails that are available throughout the city. We walked through downtown, and onto one of the trails along the Bow River. There were many artistic bridges, some wildlife, and many other people out doing a variety of activities.

A little bit of country right in the city! I haven't lived in the city for many years. This was a delightful surprise. It is beautifully maintained. We enjoyed walking around the East Village and Fort Calgary. Loved the red and the tiles with history about the contributions of the women of Calgary.

Paths are well maintained with beautiful flower baskets hanging from the lamp posts. We were impressed with how busy the paths were even on a week day.

Lots of lovely walks along the river, through parks and the city. Still work being done after flood damage. Great clean and friendly city. Lots of people asked if we needed help when we were seen consulting our map. I was given a seat on train, lovely people in Calgary. Well done.

The only issue with the pathway is in summer it gets very crowded around Eau Claire. I avoid that area in certain months. Also there are some jerks who litter. I hope the municipality could do something about it although it's very hard to control as well you can never turn a donkey to a horse!

The Calgary Pathway System is excellent! You can use it for leisure, commuting or exercise. Anyone will enjoy walking along the Bow River and looking at the city centre on one side and a variety of neighbourhoods on the other. Highly recommended!
