The pathway system in Calgary is tremendous and has lots of twists and turns and secret turn offs to discover something new. You can cycle to work downtown from the deep south of the city. Great way to get in shape or stay in shape.

This is one of the really great things about Calgary - sure there are some bad things (parking prices!) but the opportunities for outdoor activities are great. The pathway system is great. Its paved, extensive and scenic, Great for taking long walks or bike rides.

Saw all kinds of dog parks off of the Calgary trail systems, which are extensive. Wide open spaces to run

The best way to see Calgary. My personal favourites are: walking along the pathway between Fort Calgary and Crowchild Trail; roller blading in a big loop from the Calgary Zoo to Edworthy Park (you can cross to the other side at various locations) and back; bicycling the same loop, or even longer loops.

Wonderful walking and biking paths, that weave through the whole city. Often the winter pathways are even better than our winter streets!

City staff keep the main pathways open all season, with very prompt plowing and sweeping. It makes winter cycling commuting much easier and encourages a more cycle friendly city. In the summer, the separate paths for walkers vs cyclist are great, but in congested areas, you do need to be aware of your surroundings. Sometimes, a walking stick is a... More

The city lives on the river pathways! Walking, running, biking, rollerblading, dog walking,exploring....they offer great experiences at any time of day! Art exhibits, yoga classes, opera, buskers, food, dancing- don't miss this! You're never alone- even in bad weather!
