      Fish Creek Provincial Park was established in 1975, and is one of the largest urban green spaces in North America. The trails in FCPP developed organically over the years, and have been heavily affected by flooding over the last decade. Recent City of Calgary storm water management projects have also affected the trails.

      The best singletrack is typically found on the south edge of the park, and in the west end in particular. Trails are narrow, twisting and rooty. Climbs are typically short and steep. It is possible to create extended loops through the Park, linked with gravel and paved paths where no singletrack exists.

      Singletrack trail building and maintenance is done by the Calgary Mountain Bike Alliance and managed by Alberta Parks.
