Bragg Creek, Alberta

Picture this - a hamlet filled with personality, a vintage backcountry feel and small town charm. With a wide variety of shops, world class dining, artists working around every corner and a trail system that is known around the world. Bragg Creek is a beloved Alberta treasure. Just a short drive west. There is something for everyone.

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. Trails for hikers, bikers, horseback riders and skiers crisscross the thick, wildlife-filled forest and open alpine meadows of the area. Thrill seekers can try off-roading at the McLean Creek Provincial Recreation Area, while those looking for relaxation can simply admire the mountain views.

As residents and local business owners we are proud of where we live and invite you to enjoy it as much as we do.
