Discover Northwest Calgary in a different way by getting off the train at one of the nine Northwest Stations and going exploring. View historic buildings in older communities and stroll along pathways in new residential areas. Visit natural areas, ponds, ravines, escarpments and more.

The walks vary from 2.1 km to 10.8 km in length.

Some walks begin and end at the station. Some walks are one way with a bus ride either to or from the station.

Some walks require a bus ride to and from the start and finish of the walk.

In 1987 the Northwest line began operating from Downtown to the University Station. Three years later the Northwest line was extended to Brentwood Station. In 2003 the Northwest line was extended one more station to Dalhousie. The Crowfoot Station on the Northwest line opened in June 2009. Tuscany Station opened in 2014.
