From NW Calgary to downtown -- rollerblading, biking, running or just walking - beautiful scenery all along the way. Much of it is beside the Bow River -- with some great places to stop for coffee and snacks. Calgarians are lucky to have such a great pathway!

Use the train system, it comes regularly and is easy to access throughout the city. Great for tourists and those not familiar with the city.

This pathway system is unique in the sense you are smack downtown Calgary and yet feel like you are completely in a park-like setting. The system stretches for more than 60 Kms and it is so well planned and laid out, that you have space to run, ride your bike, run on your rollerblades or anything else you care to... More

Find it confusing to when one can be on bike and just walking as the paths seems to merge at times making it difficult to know exactly when one can just be on foot. More needed for cyclists however not sure how they can sort it out without major overhauls and expense..

I went for an 11km run up and down the trails adjacent to my hotel, along the river, and came upon several spots where the 2013 floods had washed away all the ground which used to support the trail, so it was just gone. Everything was safely marked / closed off, there was no danger, but the continuity of the... More

When possible, we would use the pathway and bike to where we needed to get to. We lived in Kensington so it was easy to get to downtown or to the university. The pathway is also well maintained in the winter. GJS

Like Minneapolis, Calgary has a terrific skyway above all the traffic. Unlike Toronto's Path in the basement, the Pathway is flooded with light as you walk from building to building all over downtown Calgary without worrying about the weather as you shop and eat.

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
