4WD Trail Adventures are happening on the last Saturday of every month!

Date: Last Saturday of the Month

Time: 8:30 AM - 5:30 PM (Depending on road conditions, we might get home later.)

Location: The Gear Shop Inc. Bay 1 2501 Alyth Road SE, Calgary, Alberta

The entire team at The Gear Shop is passionate about vehicles on pavement, off-pavement, going slow or going fast. It’s the passion that drives The Gear Shop to create incredible vehicles.

That passion is also why we're back to taking our customers out on the trails and giving courses for fun-fueled 4WD events.


If you love driving and the Great Outdoors, you won't want to miss this!

The first 3 trail runs are free. After this, a $10 donation will be collected. Funds will go to one of these three local charities:

1. Children's Wish Foundation
2. Calgary Women's Emergency Shelter
3. Red Cross


To ensure that these events go smoothly, we have some basic vehicle and human requirements.

  • 4WD with low range
  • Factory or upgraded recovery points
  • Working e-brake
  • Insurance and registration
  • Horn that works

I have used The Gear Shop for both maintenance appointments as well as vehicle upgrades. They have always been friendly, professional and more than happy to answer all the questions I had. They continue to go above and beyond whenever I have my vehicle there and set appropriate expectations when parts need to be ordered. I trust the Gear Shop and would highly recommend them to anyone. -Lee Milan
