Bragg Creek Travel Guide
Welcome to Bragg Creek!
On the edge of Kananaskis Country, situated amidst the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, sits the quaint and largely rural community of Bragg Creek. This beguiling hamlet is located only 44 km (27 mi) from Calgary along scenic Highway 8 and attracts many visitors, who come for the vibrant arts community, unique shopping opportunities, freshly baked pies and gorgeous scenery. Many choose to pack a picnic and head to nearby Elbow Falls, where the Elbow River collides with the rocky slopes of the mountains to form an amazing natural spectacle. Hiking and cross country skiing trails permeate Bragg Creek's woods and hills, inviting adventurers to an encounter with nature. Famous Allen Bill Pond is a prime location for fishing in the summer and skating in the winter. Thrill seekers can try off-roading at the McLean Creek Provincial Recreation Area, while those who prefer a more leisurely pace can explore the lush landscape on horseback.
Several hundred visitors every year watch was the crisp waters of the mighty Elbow River collide with the craggy rock faces of the mountains in an spectacular natural show.
