Well, I live in Calgary and I absolutely love it. I have traveled quite a bit and there is just nothing like Calgary in my opinion. Its gorgeous pathways differ in scenery and will take you absolutely anywhere within the city and other provincial parks.

With hundreds of km of pathways, paved, gravel or dirt, the exploration is endless all over the city. From huge parks with dozens of linked paths, like Fish Creek or Nose Hill, to smaller, treed parks like Griffith Woods, there is something suitable for everyone. I personally lead a Healthy Monday Lunch & Walk EVERY Monday, and start from various... More

The pathways go where the roads do not, especially through the natural areas. These offer the main on-foot access to Nose Hill and the forested slopes by and above the river. This is where the city gets its livability ratings.

It is great way to bike, come to the park, be close to the river. You can enjoy all these in this spot. It can get crowded in hot summer or where there are festivals around, but it is what makes it vibrant. It needs more food shops since Eau Claire Mall is very limited.

Calgary has an extensive off road pathway system winding its way through lush foliage, along rivers, and through unique neighborhoods. The pathways are maintained throughout the year, making it accessible during any season. The pathway is divided for folks walking or folks biking, blading, or boarding, making it safe for everyone. Great way to explore the city!

By day or by night, the pathway system in Calgary is a delight. Well constructed and maintained, beautifully lit at night, they offer an excellent, safe way to explore.

Excellent, well maintained and well lit paths for walking, jogging or cycling. Paths have signage to show the distance in kms., beautiful scenery enroute and away from car traffic.

Calgary is one of the world's most live-able cities and a big part of this is the Calgary Paths. Great for hiking, biking and blading around the city, there's some great hidden stretches that are a lot quieter (find them yourself) as well as the more popular ones, that run along the Bow and Elbow rivers. for a shot walk/ride...

Out for a walk and catch-up with friends - the walkway along memorial drive and the now is a true Calgary delight. Shared pathways with bikers combined with separate pedestrian walkways - great views and a real treat. Enjoy this true delight.
