Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park

Only twenty-seven minutes after driving away from my front door, I arrive in the parking lot of the new Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park which officially opened on August 9th, 2011.  I wanted to be out in the sunshine getting exercise but once again I didn't want big mountains or a big drive.  I printed off a map to bring along but didn't need it as the signage throughout the Park is excellent.  This is the lay of the land!
The trail types are varied! 

dirt trails 
paved bike paths
shaded tree lined walk-ways
train tracks to cross
it's a blooming place
trail follows the Bow River
a path runs parallel to the train tracks
it's best to obey all signs
protected barn and land
General Store
The trials were busy with bikers but there were lots of hikers too.  I covered 12.5 km and there is still lots more to see that I am saving for another day.  What a wonderful legacy from the Harvie Family.
