I'm on the pathways almost daily. The paths are all mapped out on Google, and you can almost always get from anywhere to anywhere in Calgary. They're in excellent condition, and in winter, they are usually plowed. The paths along the river have lovely vistas.

The city of Calgary have outdone themselves with their many beautiful bike and walking paths. Paved paths that run the length of the gorgeous Bow River, and elsewhere, some leading right into the busy and picturesque downtown area.

The pathway system in Calgary is tremendous and has lots of twists and turns and secret turn offs to discover something new. You can cycle to work downtown from the deep south of the city. Great way to get in shape or stay in shape.

This is one of the really great things about Calgary - sure there are some bad things (parking prices!) but the opportunities for outdoor activities are great. The pathway system is great. Its paved, extensive and scenic, Great for taking long walks or bike rides.

The Calgary pathway system is great for locals and for visitors. The system connects many places of interest within the City. For the most part running along the rivers (including the Bow River), urban parks and you can always find a place to stop and rest. When I used to work downtown, I could ride my bike 20Kms of my...

Saw all kinds of dog parks off of the Calgary trail systems, which are extensive. Wide open spaces to run

The best way to see Calgary. My personal favourites are: walking along the pathway between Fort Calgary and Crowchild Trail; roller blading in a big loop from the Calgary Zoo to Edworthy Park (you can cross to the other side at various locations) and back; bicycling the same loop, or even longer loops.
