"Hikes in the Canadian (Alberta part) Rockies" Rocky Mountains by Hermanater

Rocky Mountains Travel Guide: 87 reviews and 229 photos

Close to the Mountains

Since we moved to Calgary at the end of March 2005, we have enjoyed various hikes in the mountains. We try to go there a couple times a month. Hikes - to us - are just extended walks (2 to 7 km), not strenuous. Hopefully, we will work ourselves into a level of fitness that we will be able to enjoy longer outings in the 5 to 20 km range.

When I get things working I will be posting pictures and details on all the areas we have been....soon I hope....

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful, easily accessible
  • Cons:Unusual amount of Grizzly bear attacks this year
  • In a nutshell:The reason I moved to Calgary......
