Description
Waypoints (0)

Not a trail to "get away from it all", however, this is a decent little trail if you're looking for some good spots to do some fly fishing along the bow river. The trail runs along the main campground, up to the visitors center and out past the train station. The trail may occasionally be closed due to bear activity.

Really nice walk by the river. Most of the actual trail was closed due to wildlife.
