There is a wonderful,trail system along the river valley. Good for walking, running and cycling. One can visit the Eau Claire market or stop for a coffee while people watching.

As an electric wheelchair user it was great to have accessible paths without steps and to enjoy the Bow River path.

I love walking my dog or going bike riding along the pathways every weekend. It's fun trying out new pathways too.

I had never realized how extensive the network. We started biking and I suddenly started to "notice" bike paths everywhere. The are up by the airport, out west in Aspen, in the south well past the Bonnybrook plant (which connects to a system that goes out to Chestermere) and east into properties. What a treat to be able to see... More

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..
