Very pretty. Great views of the surrounding mountains while still being right in town.
Just did this one on Sunday Oct 9th with my 10year old. Super easy trail. Lots of places where the path connects with others to continue on longer or more difficult hikes. We took the long loop along the water at the west end of the trail. We had lots of opportunities for pictures.
It's really pretty my mom loved this one
A great walk to take children on. We did the loop counter clockwise beginning from the trail head indicated on this map. The only issue was finding parking but patience paid off and we were able to obtain a spot in a free parking just off of 8th avenue.
Taking our time, we were able to complete the loop in about four hours (bring water). The scenery was nice and there was lots for our three and six year old to explore. There is a playground with a picnic table located just off the trail at the beginning of the west side of the loop. There are also plenty of benches along the trail.
There is some bike traffic on the trail but no speedsters. Every rider we encountered was very courteous. We plan on returning ourselves someday with our own bikes.
All in all, it was a great way to spend the day together.
Beautiful spot!! Boardwalk continues through a marsh downtown Canmore. Really enjoyed walking this trail, The scenery is stunning surrounded by mountains and parklands. Saw many birds and elk . Not great for small dogs, as their feet kept falling through the boardwalk. This walk is accessible year around.
