Easy day loop southwest of Calgary

Any Dual-Sport regardless of size can do this easy day trip. Nice empty back roads and a good variety of scenery. The road, 532 can have snow late into Spring, and the small water ford north of Black Diamond can be a hazard after a day of rain, or during spring melt and caution should be used. A good rule of thumb for the river ford (it has a concrete pad) is if you can see the edges of the concrete pad it is safe. If the water is turbid and wider than the pad, don't do it. I made the mistake early one spring and nearly got washed away in 2,1/2 feet of fast flowing water.
