Great out and back trail run. Mostly rolling hills, with a TON of roots. If you don't like roots....run! Not much to see as you are in the trees along the river most of the time. Trail starts at the west end of the Nordic Centre, run Banff Trail from the Nordic Centre parking lot to the trail head. Trail ends at the Banff Springs Golf Course road. Continue running along the road to the Banff Springs Hotel, then head back.

Nice easy trail with some views of the river. Yes, lots of roots so watch your step. Fresh berry-filled bear poop on the trail, Canmore side; bring bear-spray.

HikingGreat!

Awesome easy trail. Lots of roots on trail so watch your step. Took Banff Trail at the Canmore Nordic Centre for 6km to trailhead of Rundle Riverside Trail and follow that for 8km to Banff golf course then another 5km to Banff Townsite. If you take the Roam bus back to Canmore just remember that it doesn't go all the way up to the Nordic Centre. Nordic Centre day lodge hours are only 9am-5:30pm so there is no restroom outside these hours.

Fun adventure on an undulating trail in the forest along the river with big root systems and rocky slopes making it quite bumpy. Many logs across the trail slowed progress. From Canmore Nordic Centre, took Banff trail to reach trail head.

Hiking

Nice to do as a trail run - easy, little elevation gain (mostly undulating) and quite knotty with the branches which makes it fun for running. Nice and cool too once you get into the shade of the trees. Wouldn’t recommend as a hike as it’s quite boring once you get past the first 3km and no longer get views of the river.

Awesome trail for trail running! Lots of fun single track with a variety of scenery and minimal elevation gain. Trail is completely dry now.
