We did an all-day bicycle tour of the Banff townsite area. When we came to Fenland Trail, we considered locking our bikes, but instead we cycled the trail slowly, stopping at each interpretive sign to read. It's a pleasant and informative trail, but not outstanding...More

Went on this little walk because it was one of the only ones still accessible without snowshoes or skis. Was beautiful in the winter but definitely doesn't compare to some of Banff's more iconic trails and hikes.

First trail of the day. What a perfect way to wake up, with the chirping of birds and rushing water in the background. We did both Fenland and Vermilion trails at once, seeing that they're both relatively short trails with no elevation whatsoever. The paths...More

It is more a stroll than a hike since the path is wheel chair friendly. Although close to Banff you feel like you're deep in the Woods.

This is an easy 2K trail, no elevations. It is well marked and wide, and takes you through a nice selection of forest just minutes from the city. Should take no more than 30-40 minutes. Parking may be a problem - room for only 10-15...More

This trail is right next to Vermillion Lakes, which was one of my favorite lakes in the Canadian Rockies (it was quiet and peaceful). The Fenland trail is a simple flat trail, but very very peaceful and quiet. The trail can take you two directions...More

The parking lot is not well signed. There is a right-hand turn just after the north ramp into Banff into a parking lot. Lovely trail beside the river, with ferns and mosses, Nice flat 2 km walk.

Fenland Trail is an easy walk not too far from Banff town center. Its mainly through forest, alongside the creek and is all flat. You can see Elk, Deer and many varieties of birds on the trail. You can also cross the footbridge and walk...More

A decent trail on the edge of town, It is a loop and provided you don't stray from the path you should arrive back at your entry point without too much effort. My one slight criticism is that some parts are poorly confusingly marked. I...More

There's no address per se. It's right on the main road as you leave Hwy 1 and come into Banff. There's parking right at the trailhead. Easy to find.
