Your favourites either at home or away, or just ones that have tantalized you.<br><br>
Here's mine from this weekend. They've finally finished with trail maintenance on Nose Hill and I have a 9 mile pathway run for the winter when I don't want to run cross-country. It does involve five street crossings though.<br><br><a href="" target="_blank">Nose Hill Regional Pathways</a><br><br>
0-.3 uphill<br>
.3 - 1 gradual down<br>
1 - 2.2 steeper uphill<br>
2.2- 3 downhill, at times steep<br>
3- 5.5 uphill, at times insanely so, particularly when on the hill. Trail follows "Many Owls Valley" and at the 5 mile point is pitched at 10% or so.<br>
5.5 - 7.5 (or so) rolling hilltop.<br>
7.5 to home, downhill, at times steep down Porcupine Valley.<br><br>
From home (3770 ft) to highest point (4050 ft), with a couple of 150 or so foot climbs thrown in.<br><br>
Edited to add a panorama of the run down Porcupine Valley. Trail goes from left to right... you can make it out (just).<br><br><img alt="" src="" style="border:0px solid;">

My fav CALGARY route is around the reservoir, about a 10 mile loop through a mix of city houses and wetlands marsh complete with deer and elk.<br><br>
My fav VANCOUVER route is around the boardwalk from the tourship dock, down to Stanley Park, around the park and then down Beach road to Burrard bridge and then back to the tourship dock. About a 10 mile loop.<br><br>
My fav route here at the mine is the only one I've got. It's an out and back along a forest access road, with a lot of hills and a lot of wildlife. As an out and back it can be anywhere from 4 km to 240 km. I usually run around 12.<br><a href=""><img alt="LL" src="" style="width:448px;height:336px;"></a>
