      A large piece of nature in the northwest of Calgary Sometimes, it even feels like you aren't in a city anymore!

      Nose Hill Park is the third largest urban park in Canada and is a great place to ride both paved, gravel and dirt trails. Many riders around Calgary absolutely love this place! It features flat paved trails all the way to those fast downhill mountain biking trails! There are many short and long trails that can be combined into much longer routes. It's family friendly with a number of beginner trails.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Shaganappi and Edgemont BLVD google parking directions
      Access Info:
      There are 6 parking lots around Nose Hill. One on the west side off Shaganappi Trail, one on the south off John Laurie Trail and 4 on the east side along 14th Street NW.
