      Bowmont Park is a 164 Ha natural area in Calgary's NW. It is bordered by Home Road, the Bow River, Nose Hill Drive and the community of Silver Springs.

      People have been walking up and down the slope between Silver Springs and the river for decades, and lots and lots of singletrack has been formed. There are good trails and not so good trail. Due to the SW exposure, these trails are some of the first to dry out in the entire city.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      AKA: Bowmount Park
      Home Road Parking Lot google parking directions
      Access Info:
      Access is from the parking lot just off Home Road and 52 St. NW, another parking lot at 51 Ave. NW [just north of the 85 St. / Bearspaw Dam Rd intersection]. The City's regional paved pathway runs the entire length of the park, and access from Silver Springs is everywhere.
