A short 2.1km well travelled dirt path accessible by foot through Banff. It was a nice little stroll with lots of birds, wildlife and water to look at. Fairly quiet with only a few parts that run along the highway. Would be great for kids or anyone who needs flat footing!

Pros:
- Long hike with minimal elevation, so it focuses more on endurance vs. strength
- Some beautiful scenery, lots of trees, alberta rose bushes, wild strawberries, and raspberries.


Cons:
- LOTS of bogs and marsh land. Most of them do have trails other hikers have used to get around, but you really won't be able to avoid getting your feet damp.
- There are quite a few mosquitoes, but they back off with the lovely scent of DEET

Not a great one when it's still damp out. About 1km in, we ran into a puddle we couldn't get around without wading through. Considering how thick the mosquitos were, we decided to turn back & try another trail.

It was a short but very relaxing walk.

It was relaxing and lots of wild life... I'd defiantly go again! Really easy first one for the year!

A beautiful drive with so many places to stop and see along the way!!

We drove this "trail" but we shared the road with several bikers, runners, and walkers. It's a nice, scenic drive perfect for an afternoon after a strenuous day of hiking.
