DRIVING AND DIRECTIONS:

We will meet at West Bragg Creek Trail head.  There is no cell reception there so make sure we know who you are before we leave Calgary.  Post if you need a ride.

Take Hiway 22 (or hiway 8 from Calgary west) to Bragg Creek. Cross the only bridge and turn left at the T. Follow that all the way out (9km) to the

Provincial Recreation area (road turns into gravel at rec area gates). Follow the gravel to the parking lot at the end. Trail starts from west end of the parking lot. Follow the old road west.
