Great trail for road biking - nice wide path. Didn’t take it for the views (you are along the highway), but nice option for some exercise & travel between Banff and Canmore.

Rented bikes and completed this trail on our first day in Canmore. While the views are quite nice, almost the entire trail is adjacent to the freeway, which makes it a bit noisy. Also, you could easily get the same views from your car while passing through the area.

I biked from Banff to canmore and back. It is mostly along the highway but it was still a nice ride.

Have gone out and back a few times with the kids, age 9 and 11. Great trail for families on bikes!

The path follows right beside the highway for most of it. Not a very relaxing ride.

Paved pathway. Allow for 2 - 3 hours to bike both ways depending on how long you stop for breaks and the speed you cycle. Canmore to Banff is more challenging than the reverse route. Most of the trail runs along the highway so expect traffic noise to accompany the beautiful scenery.
