Calgary, Alberta

Canmore Area

Canmore (60 minutes from Calgary) is a mecca for everything outdoorsy, from mountain biking, bouldering, peak bagging, skiing and of course trail running. The pathways along the river running through Canmore is a good run to get a feel of the area. I recommend the Three Sisters Pathway. This 4 mile scenic route follows the Bow River downstream to Three Sisters Mountain Village, with great river and mountain views. From Minside Trailhead, the first 1 mile is gravel; the remaining 3 miles are paved. Canmore is half way between Calgary and Banff, and is a good spot to break up the drive and go for a run
