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.

Super easy, flat trail. About a 12km hike round trip if you turnaround at the creek/bridge. Would be perfect for trail running, biking, and snowshoeing. Not the best views of the Rockies (no clearings) and the mosquitos were pesky.

Nothing beats this trail in winter. Cross country skiing from Canmore to Banff, ending with beer and nachos at the fairmont Banff springs hotel.

My wife and I skied it this winter. It is a great beginner trail for xcountry skiing but heavy traffic that you need to be aware of on the downhill portions.

This trail is fairly easy I had to get off my bike twice to walk up the road it's mostly down hill and easy just look out for the odd big rock on the down hill sections I came across only a handful of people and bring your bear mace and a whistle plus lots of water.

This trail was a complete adventure more difficult then hard if you are not an avid rider. But it's easier when your coming back stay on the fire road both there and back
