Located about a half an hour northwest of Calgary, Big Hill Creek is a beautiful day hike area. With spring fed waterfalls and bubbling streams, the area provides a scenic experience that is sure to delight. We will explore the Big Hill Creek Reserve area and will focus on a day of exploration for families including looking at pond bugs, learning about the special features of the area and other interpretive activities including a great interpretive hike through the reserve. Bring a picnic lunch and refreshments in back packs, be prepared to walk through forested and open areas, explore beaver ponds, look for fish and pond bugs. We may be fortunate enough to see herons nesting and much more that this rich area offers those who come to visit.
