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.

Get a map or track it on Google maps on your phone as its easy to get lost in the system. Sure beats getting cold or wet outside!

Marked trail ways throughout the city are easy to find and indeed one good trail is from Heritage Park following the river back to downtown, about 12 km, but well worth it and mainly on the flat.

The pathways in the city are great, along the river is especially nice but would be nice to have more pathways in areas like near the pumphouse theatre that would bring more people in.
