    Notes:

    • Dogs must be on-leash within the Provincial Recreation Area
    • The georeferenced maps at right can be downloaded and used on Apps such as Avenza to follow your position while on trail.
    • There is now a free public cellular hotspot immediately south of the Trails Centre at the WBC Parking Lot, which enables visitors to make emergency and non-emergency calls.
    • The All Season Trails system was created in partnership with the Government of Alberta and the Greater Bragg Creek Trails Association (GBCTA) recently rebranded as Bragg Creek Trails. Please visit the Bragg Creek Trails website to learn more.
    • Be Bear Aware - bears are awake and active at this time. Practice wildlife safety. Make sure you're making noise on the trail, paying close attention to your surroundings, and carry bear spray and know how to use it.
    • Caution is advised for natural hazards such as downed trees, washouts and missing bridges. Route-finding may be necessary. Please report any downed trees on the trails.
