Alberta Environment and Parks, in partnership with Bragg Creek Trails, is developing a new trails plan for the West Bragg Creek area.
Visit www.Alberta.ca/WBCtrails for more information.

    Notes:

    • Dogs are permitted on West Bragg Creek ski trails. 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
    • It’s tick season! Ticks live on our trails and are prominent in the spring. Protect yourself from tick bites by covering your skin with light coloured clothing, using bug spray containing DEET, and checking yourself and your pets after you have been outside.
