Alder Trail Loop and Banded Peak Trail: This hike surprised me as it is so close to a Bragg Creek and a local school. I was expecting an overrun trail with little or no real substance. Instead, this easy hike had lots to offer a family with young children including: educational trail signs, wildlife, a small pond with a dock, and lots of sitting areas. The entire hike, that included both portions took a couple of hours. That was taking our time to enjoy all that the trails had to offer.

love this trail. took a few hrs but it was very peaceful and dense with trees. good for a bit day as there is shade! good for families and kids as well

Forested trail, easy hiking path. Shade was good for the dogs on a warm afternoon.

Good for a easier hike, great on a hot day... a good one for younger kids... couple trees down

Great little hike in the woods, with pine and spruce needles underfoot, wildflowers, and two ponds. We appreciated the forest canopy on a 27c day. Wildflowers were everywhere, and some good bird sightings near the ponds. As a bonus, eating our picnic meal at a table by the river (next to the parking lot). Great late afternoon/early evening escape from the city. Just 1/2 hour drive!

Lots of switchbacks, very pretty and peaceful about 1k in when the traffic noise is gone. Quiet trail for a Sunday. Great hike close to the city.
