Hiking

Did this trail with Husband 2 days ago. Was a gorgeous day for hiking. All rock to the end but there is some tail on sides of creek bed. Really cool rock ravine where the creek runs through. Makes for some wet feet unless you go off the side to the trail but if suggest going through the creek as it’s shallow refreshing and really cool! Total hike was about three hours with two short stops for pictures and snacks . I would imagine this would be real hard for dogs feet I would not bring mine.

First 5 min you are hiking alongside the cement plant. It was loud, but after a few min you can’t hear it anymore. Majority of the hike is along a creek bed. Lots of rock. You criss cross the Stream several times for the first 2km. No need for water shoes, just hop on the bigger rocks, there are are some downed logs to walk on. After 2.5 km you come to a small waterfall. If you keep going past the waterfall there is a really cool field of inukshuks and a small grotto you can scramble up. Good for dogs and kids.

This was awesome! Super easy to find the trail head. Busy enough that you weren’t concerned about wildlife presence but not too busy to enjoy the nature (only saw 5 other groups in 3.5 hours. It’s not so hard that you’re left feeling demoralized but definitely not just a walk. Lots of little sub trails too.

this is my favorite trial now!! we didn't go to the summit because we were very happy with the view point. it took us 1.5 hours to the view point. the trail is wide and well maintained. Good for beginners and family. it was kinda scramble at the last part of the trail but very short. there were lots of people coming up around 11am. if you want to avoid traffic you should start early morning completed on July 10

This trail is for very experienced hikers and climbers only. After leaving the Yamnuska trail, it can be kind of difficult to find the trail to the ridge, it is very overgrown. After that it’s just climbing and scrambling to the summit. It is very dangerous for the inexperienced as the rock can be very lose in some sections and give out with no warning. Also keep in mind that down climbing is much more difficult, especially on the sections with lose rock. There is one small area that has anchors, but I found that this part was almost easier than a few other sections so I wouldn’t bother hauling up rope just for that. Most people seem to approach this mountain from Loder and Door jamb, which I would think to be much easier, but if you plan to hike the entire ridge one way start at Yamnuska.

A nice hike through canyon. You will be walking on rocks all the way. Nice Grotto waterfall, rocks graveyard and ancient glacier deposits. The canyon gets narrower at the end and little boring after ancient glacier sediments.

Did this hike today with a 5,8&12 year old. Took about 2 1/2hrs, taking our sweet time. Beautiful scenery. Wear good shoes as you are walking on rocks the whole time. You cross the creek bed a lot but you don’t need water shoes. Busy for a Thursday. Limited parking as there is a pond at the beginning that people seem to fish at. Great hike for kids. Nice little waterfall at the end.

Hiking

We weren’t sure what to expect when we started this hike, as the ore processing plant is very close to the start of the trail and it was very loud and not something scenic to look at. But after getting through the first section, we really enjoyed walking up the canyon along the river bed. There was also a trail up higher in the woods but crisscrossing back and forth across the river was fun. Loved the section just after the waterfalls with all the Inukshuks!

So much fun! Great rocky trail and great scenery. Inukshuk Garden just past the waterfall was beautiful! Our son was the only one to brave climbing up to the cave. Scary if you ask me!

Did this back in May and it was muddy and icy at the time. Really rewarding views when you get to the top! Was my first hike of the season and only took some rest near the top so definitely very do-able!

Mountain biking

A classic, paved, well-maintained 2-lane bike path with great views. Quite a bit of road noise, but being safely separated from cars more than makes up for it. Easier going from Banff->Canmore than the other direction. There's a nice picnic spot and overlook about halfway that makes for a good turnaround spot if you can't make the entire path. Not recommended for dogwalking - too much fast bike traffic.

Easy trail with nice views. With a 2 and 5 year old and plenty of stops to admire wildflowers it took us less than 40 mins. If I were to do it again I’d add a second nearby hike or viewpoint.

We love this nice and easy trail with the kids. You will cross the creek back and forth multiple times until you get to the waterfall. Once at the waterfall, do not let the sign fool you that the trail is not maintained... it is well worn and you will be rewarded with a cool cave maybe about 500m past the waterfall that the kids will love! We just wish people would be more safety conscious when scrambling up to it as a grown adult impatiently went past my son who was almost to the top and with his footing sent rocks tumbling down in the process.

If you’re into self torture or sadism, this is the trail for you. The approach up the creek is a meat grinder. Wonderful views from the top though, including a rarely seen view of Canmore.

Great!

Nice hike close to the city. Recommend getting there early because the Barrier lake parking lot gets quite full. Going all the way to the fire station is a must! Continued down and looped back out Jewel Pass

Hiking

Great trail for my family ages 12 & 9. The trail was really busy and social distancing was hard in some spots but we managed to do it. Although the first section is fairly easy, some areas are very rocky - wear good shoes especially if you’re new to hiking.

HikingGreat!MuddyNo shadeRockyScramble

Nice trail with a 15 min walk within the canyon and water. A bit technical after 10 min of started and at the last bit. Both last about 15 minute but worth it. Although I've seen some, I would not recommend it for kids and elderly. The first 10 min of the trail from the parking are not easy to identify and you may lose the trail. In general it is flat on scrabble, rocks and water without much shade. The larger portion of the trail was a dry river/waterfall. so if I had a choice, I would do the first third then come back. Have fun!
