Sommerset/Bridlewood LRT, Calgary, AB
This is a loop around North Bragg Creek Hill that takes you to a ridge with veiws.It combines a snow shoe trail with a section of logging road that is used in winter only.This would be a excellant beginner hike because its only about 8.1 km. long with only 198M of elevation.Fall colours should be excellant.It starts out from the West Bragg Creek parking lot,which for those of you who want to drive directly there you follow the West Bragg Ck. sign from the village,head along Balsam Ave. and cross the bridge over the Elbow river. At the T- Junction turn left and head straight west until you dead end at the West Bragg Ck.parking lots. Park at the far side of the lot.I will be leaving the Somerset LRT east lot(Wendys/Tim Hortons side) at 9am.and arrive at West Bragg Ck. lot at 10 am.,so anyone needing a ride we can carpool from Somerset.Please indicate on the comments if you will meet at the LRT or the trail head.
What to bring:
Your packpack with lunch and water and any other hiking equipment you use. This time of year we can experience winter conditions so please come prepared with winter gloves and head gear,Gaiters would also be a good idea.After the hike we will meet at the Cinnamon Spoon Cafe for a hot cup of your favourite beverage.If you have any questions or concerns please email Wayne/Gail thru the site or contact me(Wayne) by text/phone at 403/818/3790.Please bring money to pay your driver gas money if your riding,$10 paid in cash to your driver.
