Hey gang, we're back again with another guest blog from our pals at Adventure Club Photo. This week, Kacey and husband Josh talk about some of the best hikes and adventures to go on.
Not only are most of these adventures suitable for littles, some are even within the Calgary city limits for an urban experience or out in the wilderness among the mountains! Take a look at how the team at Adventure Photo Club is staying busy with their family this fall by continuing to scroll :)
Let's dive into it!
Fall is officially here on September 22 this year, and with that comes one of the busiest times of the year for family photographers. Something about the changing leaves, back to school, and the end of summer reminds families to slow down, take a moment and capture the new adventure they are on. Summer can be a really busy time and once a new fall routine hits, it’s a great chance to put on your sweaters and socks for some family photos. Don’t forget about that Christmas card too!
As a family and wedding photographer I have had the chance to scout for some awesome, local fall locations that are stunning for family walks and fall photography. Having two tiny people and a desire to be in nature with them in all seasons, we have been exploring some family-friendly spots where you can take in the colourful leaves and crisp, cool air. We are always looking for adventures that our whole family can go on and we share them through our feed at @wild.lifeguide.
Our list of beautiful spots to explore in fall will start close to home in the city of Calgary.
In the city limits:
- Voiters Flats
- Carburn Park
- Edworthy Park
- Sandy Beach
- North Glenmore Park + Weaselhead Flats
- Griffith Park
- Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area
- Mt Lorette Ponds
- Marl Lake Loop
- Ptarmigan Cirque
- Troll Falls + Hay Meadows
- Cat Creek Waterfall Trail
- Arethusa Cirque

Not kid-friendly, but worth the adventure:
- Larch Valley by Moraine Lake
- Taylor and O’Brien Lakes
- Chester Lake
- Pocaterra Ridge
*All hikes can be found on the All Trails app*
I feel so lucky to be a photographer in the Rocky Mountains because they provide a great backdrop year round. The fall just happens to be the most colourful time of year to head out and explore.
