Went from canmore to banff and back on mountain bikes. We are avid hikers but novice bikers. I thought this trail would be long but easy as it states. Wrong! For us beginners this trail was very HARD!!! We saw advanced bikers peddle the hills no problem and the trail from canmore to banff is certainly easier but the round trip was pretty gruelling as the way back has that slight uphill the whole time making the rocky hills that much harder. Proud to have finished it but there was nothing to see along the way.
