Weaselhead Natural Area Reviews & Ratings
How have I lived in Calgary for about 40 years and never been here before? It was a quick visit of about 2 hours, but it's a beautiful place, and so close to the city. I walked on well maintained bike/pedestrian paths from the north side of the Elbow River, down across the river and back. Great views, lots of natural, native flora, and got to sit beside the river and just enjoy. May have been my first visit, but it won't be my last. I'm looking forward to exploring it further. 😀
The hike was nice and pretty flat on the trail. Couldn't see the water most of the time with tree coverage. Signage needs to be improved as we came to one spot with 3 different options to take and had no idea which trail to take. Luckily another person was walking by and could direct us.
Great walking paths. Would be nice if the cyclists actually paid attention to the signs of 10km/hr so they don't KILL SOMEONE ripping down the hill getting their long awaited workout in *rolls eyes*. Tons of mosquitoes too... bring that spray!
I was in the area after getting my buffet fix over at Grey Eagle. A wonderful place to stroll and digest while taking in the scenery. Word of caution, if heading down to the river crossing it is steep on the pathways. Lots of struggle heading back up towards the parking lot via walking or by bike.
Outstanding place to hike or walk. The flora and fauna are beautiful. Saskatoon berries will soon be ripe and the wild roses at this time of year are very fragrant.
