THE TRAIL PROJECT WILL BE
DEVELOPED IN TWO STAGES:
Stage 1 of The Trail, which is actively being worked on, will be developed between Calgary and Cochrane -- connecting Haskayne Legacy Park and the Rotary/Mattamy Greenway Trail in Calgary to Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park and Cochrane.
Stage 2 of The Trail will connect Cochrane to Canmore, working closely with Stoney Nakoda leadership and communities to determine a path forward.
The existing Trans Canada Trail between Calgary and Cochrane is known as a trail for expert users. It has gravel sections, steep grades and a portion of the route requires users to walk or wheel beside high-speed motor vehicle traffic on highway shoulders.
The Connecting the Trails project imagines a pathway between Calgary and Cochrane that provides experiences for everyone to explore the Bow Valley.
