Kinnaird River Valley Loop

This is a nice loop along the North Saskatchewan River, incorporating paths on both sides and several parks. Start on the south side of the river at McNally High School,  just northeast of Forest Heights Park, on  106th Ave., and turn left onto Rowland Rd. Northwest. After a stretch through a very quiet neighborhood, cross the Capillano Bridge, with a path  beside the busy road making it safe for runners and walkers. The route then follows the Kinnaird River Valley  and around Dawson Park, for a stretch of quaint, quiet running.

Add-On: Many other opportunities to add-on with the miles of paths along the River and interconnected parks.
