Easy trail, LOTS of mosquitoes. It's beside a river but when you look on google maps, it shows that the trail goes around a lake, but at no point did we see it.

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.

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.

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

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.
