It takes a very special place to earn a reputation as being the "gateway to God's country," but Bragg Creek - nestled a mere 30 kilometers west of Calgary - is really that kind of a place. Still graced with the raw, isolated beauty that prompted the area's founding residents, Nova Scotia-born brothers Albert and John Bragg, to build the first local homestead back in 1894, Bragg Creek is a true nature-lover's paradise offering countless Albertans and passing visitors an unrivaled natural playground for rejuvenating their spirits and recharging their batteries.
As you drive west on Hwy 66 you will find yourself on the stairway into the Rocky Mountains. The Elbow Valley has numerous trails that wind through the foothills and into the Rocky Mountains. The West Bragg Creek area offers a terrific cross-country ski trail system.
