With the fall season, trees are changing colors adding to the already scenic views. Downside Crowded on weekends (runners, walkers, cyclists, occasional inline skater or longboarder) around mid-morning to afternoon. Cyclists go way over the 20 kph limit so watch out especially for your kids. Comment Go early morning or late afternoon.

Also good for a run or a walk. Some paths are bike only or run/walk only. Downside Lots of rude people who don't care about respecting others. Quite crowded. Comment I went on this trail with my wife and son. We both have helmets, bells, lights, etc. I found very few people signal to others when they're passing, and then I had a runner who specifically sprinted to make it hard for me and my wife to carefully and maturely pass him. Wow. Some of the rudest people in Calgary use this trail.

The south west part of the loop is quite nice. Downside Busy, mainly cause it's in the city. The northwest part heads through the neighbourhood which takes away a bit. Bikes can only stay on the pavement. Comment I'd do this again, kind of like a Sunday stroll. A good loop to get some fresh air.

Weaselhead is beautiful. Biking it regularly has kept me in shape over the years. Downside Bikes are not allowed off of the paved path on the south side of the Elbow River.
