About Bragg Creek
Situated in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Bragg Creek is a charming hamlet retaining all the quaint character of the past. Just a 30 minute 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 centres are a magnet for a true diversity of residents and visitors.
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. West Bragg Creek Trails has over 152km of trails for hikers, bikers, horseback riders and skiers these trails crisscross the thick, wildlife-filled forest and open alpine meadows of the area.
