Calgary & Area Tracks

I thought that I would start a thread where Calgary and area tracks could be posted in case the Dual-sport site shuts down as rumoured.

I will start with a wandering southern route between Calgary and Waterton Park. Mostly good gravel with a couple of short Green Lane sections just south of Calgary (Dunbow Road and 48th Street) that can be easily worked around if wet and impassable. There is a section near Millarville that goes across an oil field road and it may be gated and locked. If so there is a go around just west that uses township roads and you will see it on your gps if you zoom out just a bit. Please be respectful and close the two cattle gates at the south end if you can get across the oilfield road.

Most of the gas stops are not listed, but are easy to find. Longview, Pincher Creek, Waterton Park Townsite, Nanton, Claresholm, High River, Turner Valley, etc. NOTE: The gas stop at Brocket is no longer operating.

There is currently (as of May 2013) a bridge out west of Waterton reservoir due to replacement construction. It can be re-routed around in either direction on township and range roads to connect back to the track. Just south of Brocket there is a very short "unimproved road" section that would be muddy after a day of rain, so caution is advised.

I have added a revised track, below.
