    Notes:

    1. Caution is advised for natural hazards such as downed trees and mud on trail.
    2. Be wildlife aware! Traveling in groups, keeping pets on leash and carrying bear spray is highly recommended. See the Wildlife Safety page for more information.
    3. Please respect the multi-use nature of the trails and parking lot. Equestrian users must be able to access the dedicated equestrian parking lot for the safety of all visitors and horses.
    4. It's tick season and we recommend that if you are out recreating that you check yourself and your pets once your outing is complete. Click for more information about the Submit-a-Tick Program and tick borne diseases.
    5. 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.
    6. The All Season Trails system was created in partnership with the Government of Alberta and the Greater Bragg Creek Trails Association (GBCTA). Please visit the GBCTA website to learn more.
