The Cowboy Trail Scenic Highway (PR 22) travels the pine-wooded hills and rolling rangeland of the Rocky Mountain foothills west of Calgary. The open country south of Cochrane and north of Longview allow for expansive views. The rocky grandeur of the distant mountains is present on the numerous occasions when the route crests the foothill ridges.
