This area now primarily an access point to the south part of the West Bragg Creek trail system. The most popular walking route is Fullerton Loop, with its great views west and south to the mountains from the top. This has become another starting point for the mountain biking community, with an excellent network of trails designed for them as... More

The Allen Bill Pond is not like it used to be as it was heavily damaged during the 2013 Alberta Floods. However the beauty of the area, the mountain range back drops. The beautiful hiking trails surrounding it, still make it a wonderful place to visit.

This is no longer a pond due to the flood but still a nice place to visit. There is a walking trail at the east end of the pond under the bridge. I would recommend a nicer place to visit is further up the road when the gate opens May 1 I think called forget me not pond.

This was a beautiful pond. It was also free to visit and very busy. It was severely damaged by the 2013 flood and was never repaired.

This is still a popular spot for picnicing in the summer and often the parking lot is full. However, in the winter months there is not much to see or do here. A quick stop to take some photos or go across the highway to hike Fullerton Loop. There are dry toilets and picnic tables. The pond is gone but... More

I remember going skating here in the winter and walking the pond in the summer. It is now just a pile of rocks, it is so sad what the flood did to this area. I don't think it will ever be the same. Lots of people still stop by and pull out lawn chairs, and it maybe OK if you... More

Flood damage is very evident here, don't expect accessible hiking trails. A good place to bring a picnic and enjoy the river (it is no longer a pond).

This used to be a great place to visit with safe fishing and canoeing for kids on a man-made lake next to the creek. However, sadly, the floods of May 2013 washed it away and now the is a large expanse of rocks, gravel and fallen trees. Still wofth a visit to see the immense power of nature and what... More
