NORTH BRAGG LOOP

  • Somerset/Bridlewood LRT

    Sommerset/Bridlewood LRT, Calgary, AB (map)

    51.045326 -114.058098

  • If coming on the LRT get off on the east lot,same side as Wendys/Tim Hortons
  • 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. MEMBERS ONLY----DOGS WELCOME,but must be on leash since we are in a provincial park.

    I plan to be at the Somerset LRT and would like to get a ride. What is meeting time at LRT (I assume it's different from trailhead.

  • wayne

    At our last organizers meeting we decided that 16 was the ideal number for safety and enjoyment for the hikers.When you get a large group,and l,m talking from experience,is that you get hikers breaking off in 2-3 groups and even hikers being left behind walkingalone.A day before the hike there is usally 5-6 people drop out for whatever reason,so hikers on the waiting list move up quick.

    There are two of us attending but the system did not allow me to indicate this.

    October 23, 2013

    • wayne

      Since you are registered together,l guess the software treats you as one,you should have signed up separate to S+S,but this time don't worry about it,you both can .In future hikes,you should register as individuals.

      October 23, 2013

  • Gail

      If your coming from Cochrane its best if you just head to Bragg Ck.and go thru town and will meet you at the trail Head at about 10 am.
