Have you been out to the West Bragg Creek parking lot yet? Lots of great parking space including turn around areas for horse trailers. Great job AB Parks on this design! There is also a warming hut/trails centre in the far west end thanks to GBCTA (Greater Bragg Creek Trails Centre) – open 9-5 daily.
West Bragg Creek Trail Area under construction – Info from Alberta Parks on Public Access and Construction:
Construction is being staged as best as possible to allow continued access to the site. The majority of construction will occur between March 29th and June 30th prior to the peak summer months of July and August. The parking lot will be closed for a three day period March 29th to 31st. Remaining construction will be minimal and is expected to be completed in the fall.
Parking will be limited during construction to about 80-90 parking spots and there may be periodic closures. While efforts are being made to stage construction and allow for safe public parking and access, limited spots will be available. Please check out Alberta Parks Advisories for up to date information on construction.
The West Bragg Creek trail system can also be accessed from alternative staging areas including Allen Bill Day Use and Fullerton Day Use in the Elbow Valley, along Highway 66.

As a cyclist my Racing and Coaching experience comes primarily from the various Mountain Biking disciplines having raced and coached XC, Downhill and Endurance events over the years. My love for mountain sports brought me west to Alberta in 2009, having a settled in the Okotoks and having first child I look forward to joining the XC Bragg Creek ski and mountain bike programs as a coach and sharing my passion for the mountains and an active lifestyle.
Growing up in Northern Ontario XC skiing was picked up early on in life, after university volunteered as a ski patroller in both the Nordic and Alpine disciplines for 5 years at both competitive events and some Ontario’s busiest resorts.
