A lovely easy walk in town

You are in the admist of nature right in town. Depart from several locations. I usually leave near the the Bowview Lodge behind Banff Park Lodge.

An easy mostly flat loop. Still snow around when we went but could see the beauty of the walk starting to break through. The trail follows a stream which I've been told wildlife has been seen but we weren't lucky enough to see the day we were there.

Quiet and peaceful, flat trail in Banff. A great way to be in the forest without feeling too isolated. A 2k loop. Good at any time of the year, except when icy in the Winter.

We discover this trail by accidental and was really delighted by this short trail loop. It's in a low and marshy or frequently flooded area of land, thus a fen. Because it's a fen, it's has unique life form of the Banff National Park. A great hidden gem.

We visited this winter, short trail, probably nice in summer, but not much to do or see in the winter.

Our first time. Winter day, cold. Fabulous ice formations on the river. Self guided trail: well done and informative. Looks like it is wheel chair accessible. Flat, 2km long.

Fenland Trail is a nice easy walk any time of the year. There are pit toilets and picnic tables near the parking lot. The walk itself takes you through the forest and then along a stream. The trail is wide and quite flat. Strider bikes and strollers have no trouble using it. There are a number of wildlife that you... More

We took the baby in the large wheeled stroller along this well defined trail. The scenery was amazing with lakes surrounded by mountains and small bridges over the creeks feeding the lake.

We're not sure if this one is a total all year short hike - but it's pretty close. There was a lot of packed snow on the trail (they don't clear it) when we were there, so when it melts in the spring, it could be quite soggy. But otherwise, this is a fine, 2 km walk in an area... More

We've been walking the Fenland trail for years. It is an easy 2km loop that you can extend by walking to and from town. As the kids get older, the faster it is to complete. There's a picnic area there too.
