Best Trails in Lethbridge



Escape the crowded mountains and join us in exploring southern Alberta by foot! The coulees in and around Lethbridge offer trails for all skill levels - and if you want more incentive to enjoy them, we’ve got that, too.

One Step at a Time.

Enjoy any of the trails highlighted on this page - and share! Upload a photo to Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook, tag @VisitLethbridge and use the hashtag #VisitLethbridge, to be entered to win a 2-night stay at one of our partner hotels. The contest is open until August 31, 2021.

Go the Distance.

We are offering two chances to earn prizes by enjoying Lethbridge and area trails, eligible for those who book a two-night stay at one of our partner hotels before August 31, 2021.


24 in 48: If you prove completion of 24kms of trails in 48 hours, you will earn a prize to mark your accomplishment!


48 in 48: If you complete a challenging 48kms in 48 hours, you will earn a prize plus a gift card for a one-night stay!


How to earn it:

  • You must book a two-night stay at a partner hotel, and walk or run either 24 or 48kms of trails in the 48 hours between check-in time of 3pm on the first day, and the late checkout of 3pm on the final day.

  • Please review and sign this waiver, and present to the hotel front desk when checking in.

  • To prove your treks:

    • Install the AllTrails app on your phone and open a free account.

    • Find any of the trails we’ve mentioned below on the app. Note that you cannot do the same trail twice to qualify for the above prizes.

    • When starting a trail, select it on the app, and then click the “Navigate” button as you begin.

    • OPTION: Go into the app settings and choose “Garmin Connect” so that it will automatically sync if you usually track your activities via Garmin.

    • When you’re done, leave a rating for the trail and you will earn a completed badge! Go into your “Activities” tab on the app, and take a screenshot of every trail you finish (the screen that shows length, “moving time”, etc). Email these screenshots to events@visitlethbridge.com before checking out - if they total the required minimums or more within 48 hours, and if you complete the 48 in 48 challenge, you will also be sent a gift card for a one-night stay!

Please note:

  • There are some trails that may not exactly match the AllTrails suggested routing. In order to earn a “completed” badge, you only need to complete 75% of the routing that AllTrails suggests.
