We did the 30km walk along the Ghost lakes/ Devils gap which is worth the difficult drive in across the Ghost river bed a road loop north to the berm in the middle and onto the washout river bed. I think most people will want find the parking area and walk across the river. Awesome and enjoyable walk.

It was a great hike but got a little turned around as the trail was still partially snow covered. Great for the kids and dogs. Beautiful scenery.

Nice trail through a forested area around the lake, but not very exciting. Good for a quick walk.

Great little area to wander through the woods. If you google middle lake trail PDF you can find the brochure online to follow along with the trail markers. A little icy this time of year still but easy for all levels!

Very short - less than half hour. views were ok!

This is a easy walk and Family friendly. The trails are mostly flat and wide enough for a stroller. The campground areas have playgrounds, plus many benches along the way to stop, relax or snack. Parts of the Bow River park were closed on our visit March 28th, so we parked at Middle Lake and made this walk into a 5km loop. We started to Middle lake to Elk Flats Trail, around Many springs and then down along the river taking Bow River trial, returning to Middle Lake on Moraine trail. We had the whole park to ourselves and On Moraine trail we stopped at the amphitheatres for lunch and a dance party. For the adults the views are very pretty. If you are just getting into hiking a good beginners hike.
