Starting at the parking lot for the Middle Lake trail, we kept right and then took a left onto Elk Flats, did the easy loop around Many Springs Trail, then walked along the Bow River Trail to Moraine to complete the 6.3km loop in about 2.5 hours. Mostly dry conditions for this relatively easy hike!

Combined with Bow River and Moraine Trail, all together a scenic 3 hour hike.
