“A nice hiking trail in the city”

The Douglas Fir Trail is a little gem of a trail within the city limits along the pathway off edworthy park. We walk the pathway to downtown from Edworthy and take a hike up the Douglas Fir Trail to get into shape for those mountain hikes. Calgary has a great pathway system for walking.

Edworthy park has two main sections, a large off leash dog area on top and a picnic area down below along the river. The Douglas fir trail is a moderate walk along the side of the river bluff. It is easier to reach all areas from the south side of the river. Entering on the north requires parking your car and using a pedestrian bridge to cross the river. If your dog is with you, find the north entrance. Your dog will have a fantastic place to romp and you will get a gorgeous view of downtown Calgary. North entrance is off of bow trail, take 45 st north, east on spruce drive. At fork in road, left for dog park, right for picnic area.

Edworthy Park exists in a suburban area of Calgary edging the Bow River. This park offers quiet picknicing spots, access to the river (we started rafting from Edworthy Park several times) and playgrounds that children will love. Edworthy Park is not easily located which is part of it's charm.

It is a great place for a picnic. Unfortunately everyone thinks that way so it is crowded. It is close to the bike pathsystem. A great place to run, roller blade and mountain bike. More for the casual mountain biker.

Always like walking here in the north, great variety of terrain, and always end up seeing someone I know or meet someone new!
