There are about 8 km of singletrack trails in the Heritage Park area. A few ladders and bridges have also been built. The area is on the side of a small mountain, so there are some good downhill runs. Watch out for fallen trees.
From the Lougheed Highway, go north on Stave Lake Street to 11th Avenue. Turn right on 11th, and park at Heritage Park Secondary. The entrance to the trails is at the east end of the parking lot, along 11th Avenue.

UpsideIf you have not been back to this area in a while you will be pleasantly surprised. Still a bit of a maze but it just adds to the adventure. Good shape trails,well maintained,pretty area. Dry when all other higher trails are wet or snowy. DownsideNot that much fun for a bigbike especially if you have triple crowns and come in at around 40plus pounds. all mtn or pure xc bikes rule here. CommentFvmba held toonie races in 2011 which resulted in them coming in and fixing a lot of the trails up. taking out dangerous trees and putting in some serious muscle. Wentings Cycle can fill you in on the area ,or just go check it out. g

CommentThe area shown in green is all public land. If you want to get to the saddle (i.e. the intersetion of Blaspheme, Jacob's Ladder, and Gondola) without trespassing on monestary property, I suggest you use the switchback trail between Hale Mary and Blaspheme, and then continue up onto Gondola, which will take you right to the saddle. From the saddle, the trail to the north-east leads to the Monestary. All the other trails are on public land.
As a trail runner, I really appreciate having mountain bikers in this area. Nobody else does any trail maintenance, except the mountain bikers. Most days, I will run 8-10km through the trails without encountering another person.
