CTV Walking Wednesday: July Long Weekend Walks and Hikes in Calgary and Kananaskis!

Want to have a day of wilderness calm to balance out your Canada Day celebrations? How about some spectacular wildflowers hikes in the Kananaskis? Or an urban walk through the Beltline, Mount Royal and into Roxboro/ Erlton natural park, followed by an Elbow River stroll through Lindsay park. Check out my CTV segment from June 28, 2017 for some ideas!

Watch my CTV SEGMENT: Long Weekend Hikes and Walks

 

And here are the Gemtrek maps you’ll need to find Cox Hill and Grass Pass  (The mountain hikes in my segment). Find them at MEC or Maptown in Calgary.  For the city walk, you’ll need my book Calgary’s Best Walks. Try the Roxboro- Ramsay route or the Stanley Park- Mount Royal route (or mix them up and make a new route!)

Here’s some of the shots I have taken in the past three weeks while hiking in Calgary, The Elbow Valley, Sibbald, Jumpingpound and the Highwood (all covered in the maps and my book above)
