CTV Calgary Walking Wednesday: Briar Hill and Hounsfield Heights Urban Hike, NW

Have you walked Briar Hill and West Hillhurst in Calgary’s northwest lately? How about Hounsfield Heights, the Mount Royal of the North?

I featured the Briar Hill & Housfield Heights on my CTV Morning segment this week. This route is a wonderful mix of neighbourhoods, single track trail green space climbs with phenomenal downtown Calgary views, gardens, and the Bow River. And you’ll be pleased to know that the route travels past Amato Gelato and Dairy Lane Cafe, a wonderful little diner with outdoor patio on 19 Street, NW. Kensington Road is a perfect side-trip option if you want to do a bit of shopping, grab a book at Pages Books, or a fantastic sandwich one home-made breads, from Peppino’s on Kensington Road.
