Visit Bragg Creek About

About

Situated in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Bragg Creek is a charming hamlet retaining all the quaint character of the past. Just 30 minutes drive from Calgary, close to the junctions of Highways 8 and 22, it’s a community of artists, ranchers, local businesses, and commuters, existing in harmony with the beauty of nature. The area attracts many visitors, from hikers and bikers to those seeking culture in the unique shops and restaurants. You won’t find big-box stores in Bragg Creek. Instead, you might find the occasional horse hitched up outside the local supermarket, a music or arts event, and crafts to buy from local artisans. The restful atmosphere, physical beauty, old log buildings, and shopping centers are a magnet for a true diversity of residents and visitors alike.

Bragg Creek is well known as the gateway to Kananaskis Country, and many choose to take a picnic lunch to nearby Elbow Falls or one of the other beautiful leisure areas off Highway 66. Trails for hikers, bikers, horse-back riders, and skiers crisscross the thick, wildlife filled forest and open alpine meadows of the area. Thrill seekers can try off-roading at the McLean Creek Provincial Recreation Area, while those looking for relaxation can simply admire the mountain views.

As residents and local business owners we are proud of where we live, and invite you to enjoy it as much as we do.
