If you have a bicycle this is a must do.

Calgary's pathway system is amazing. You can get almost anywhere in the city using it. The paths go through some of the most beautiful areas of the city.

If you have a bike while in town, go for a nice long ride. You can see the city by bike and have an excellent ride. Stop along the way for some lunch or coffee. Just be careful at a few times: - noon around Eau Clair is packed with walkers so if you are riding you will find it... More

Calgary is really excellent for all runner, bikers, skaters and walkers. Some of the pathways can be very crowded but the option is very wide. Calgarians are really fond of fitness and even in the harshest conditions of winter season you will rarely find yourself alone while doing your runs

I am a huge fan of our pathway system. I have seen every nook and cranny because of it. You won't find anything like it from sitting in a car.

We have done dozens of days of urban touring cycling in 17 Canadian cities (and a handful in the US). We now rate Calgary's pathway system as #1 in the country. It is extensive and well designed. Of the cities we've cycled in, only the Minneapolis pathway system is a bit better. We commend the City of Calgary for this... More

Fantastic pathway system. Gorgeous pathways that mix cyclists, walkers and joggers. We did a bit near Prince's Island and loved the ease of the system without being overcrowded. Lots of space to walk. Would love to go back to explore more.

Took a nice walk along the Bow River Pathway. Nice mix of walkers and cyclists. Felt safe. Only a few blocks from the C Train stations. Enjoyed the ambience and the peace and quiet yet so close to downtown.

If you visit Calgary and don't take a walk on the pathways you are missing the most interesting and beautiful part of Calgary. The pathway takes you through historic sites, beautiful city architecture, past old rail lines and former rail stations, and of course - by the river. It's beautiful all year round and it's what most Calgarians love most... More

We wanted to walk off the roadways and sidewalks. We persevered in finding out how to get to access points to the walking trails via the bus. It might be in the cities interest to have physical maps at hotels to show the bike, hike walk trails with entry and exit points. We got off at Barlow Station and we... More

This a great way to explore the city and you don't know how many there are until you get out there and explore.
