Mountain Bikers/Hikers Visiting Exshaw

We now have designated vehicle parking for visiting mountain bikers and hikers in Exshaw.  These parking areas are located across from the Royal Canadian Legion on Heart Mountain Drive and at the Exshaw School near Mt. Allen Drive.  Street signage has been installed in the Hamlet to direct vehicles to these locations. If you are intending to have a tailgate party after your activity, please consider visiting the Exshaw Legion or Heart Mountain Cafe instead.  The Legion welcomes non-members.   Enjoy our natural surroundings and please respect the community and avoid parking on residential streets.
