I love to roadbike and run and we live downtown so most of the river pathways are steps from our door. They are always plowed by the city and are only sometimes icy when weather beats out the cleaning crew! Most of my colleagues that live in the suburbs use the bike paths to commute to work! Go Green Calgary!

Loved the pathways all along the river, very nice near down town. The are paved and heavily used by all sorts of locals and visitors to the city alike. Fun way to view the city and get some exercise.

The pathways are good.. they get you into the city but in the winters they could use more care for icing. i find the path ways get icy very quickly and are not deiced in a timely manner.

We visited Calgary for a late afternoon stroll and early dinner and I was impressed by the city and the walks around. It was easy navigation through the city and once we hit the park walk it was a truly pleasant afternoon spent walking around and taking the sites in. While there is some construction in some areas there were... More

We used a couple of sections when out bird watching. The main walking area was well kept and the lesser used areas felt very natural, which was nice.

Calgary pathway system is second to none. It is probably the longest pathway system in North America and getting longer all the time. They keep it well maintained.

It's great for walking and cyclists. The system is quite extensive around the city. I love walking up into Nose Hill Park with my dog, The path takes us all the way through to the other side of the city.

I was in Calgary in October 2014 and the leaves were just turning yellow. Therefore it was an amazing experience to walk around the Pathway System. Most of the time it's flat and you can walk around the city in a nice surrounding, away from traffic. Walk along the Bow river or just relax on a park bench. It's worth... More

It is said, that nothing is more beautiful that Canada in the Fall and Winter months. Such a statement cannot be held any truer than in Calgary, more particularly if one where to take a stroll along Calgary`s Pathway System, from the bright colours of the fall to the heavenly beauty of winter with the country side back drop and...

I love the Pathway system, but I noticed quite a bit of construction on my most recent visit to Calgary. As a result, the path gets re-routed through some nice residential areas. Anyway, even with the construction work, I rate the pathway a "4" stars --- well worth the visit. The views of the city are gorgeous.
