About this event

The Historical Blackfoot Trail and the Chestermere District

The route between Blackfoot Crossing and Calgary was a transportation corridor established by First Nations peoples and subsequently used by the NWMP and early settlers. Officially surveyed in 1888, it was the primary road to town for those living east of Calgary well into the early 1900s. Join Eileen McElroy to discover some of its stories and the trail remnant that remains within Chestermere.
