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.

Very simple walk. The loop is easy to find if you follow the GPS. Takes 30-45 ish minutes depending on how fast you walk, but there is a nice river near the trail to take dogs swimming.
Good for families and dogs, but it is very easy so do not go here if you’re looking for a challenge.

My favourite trail to run in town. From the river to the school and back it’s about 8.5km.

Very poor signs. Our 1 km trek turned into 6 or more km! Overall a very easy hike suitable for a 4 yr old.
