Enjoyable Sunday afternoon hike. A lot of mosquitos so DEFINITELY throw some spray on! Nice walk through the forest, not much incline. You reach a point where there seems to be 3 trails, and it looks as though you should carry on going down the ‘natural lead’ of the trail, but it leads to an obstructed view of Banff. Instead, take the left turn and follow the trail down and up, over a couple rocky patches, until you come around a bend and see Cascade in all its glory! Looks like the view you get from Banff Avenue which is cool. Nice valley view too!
You can loop back or take the same trail back. Took us about 2.5 return, with a break. Enjoy!
