Fenland trail is a short (2.4 km) loop trail in the town of Banff. It's just on the outskirts of the town, so easy to get to (there are two parking lots conveniently located close by as well), but nice and quiet, away from the town noise. The trail follows 40 Mile Creek (just off of Bow river) partly, and... More

This is a very pretty, no elevation stroll through a wet area with abundant greenery and wildflowers. It was our last hike after some more strenuous hiking and was a very pleasant and pretty walk to end our hiking vacation. Take your time and stroll. It is great for little kids. There is virtually nothing to fall off of or... More

This is a lovely trail, close to the Banff townsite but far enough to get away from the crowds. We did not see any wildlife but the trail does go over or along a quiet creek and we like to watch water. The trail is supposed to be 2 km long but it did not seem that long to us.... More

Took a wander along this trail which was very quiet. Unfortunately no wildlife was seen. We detoured off the route to go to vermiliion lakes - worth the detour.

Short, flat, nice pre breakfast walk. Not an exciting hike, but beat the crowd and wildlife may be spotted. Bikers and walkers with dogs seem to like it. If you have limited time it may be something to pass up, but if you have an hour to kill, it beats walking downtown in the crowds.

We went on this trail around 8:30 in the morning (season: autumn). It was crisp and quiet - we only encountered one other hiker. The trail had a really amazing vibe - it's almost entirely covered by forest. The shrub is very dense and full of what looked like burrows, fox holes, logs converted into animal homes :) We didn't...

Well laid out self interpretive trail very near town. It also intersects with Vermillion Lakes. Keep an eye out for wildlife.

The path Fenland is pleasant to travel(browse), without too many difficulties. The only fauna(crowd) that we were born by our passage limits itself to squirrels and water rat. In addition, of numerous mosquitoes

We were quiet disappointed from the Fenland Trail, Yes it's a nice walk but just like any other forest walk, however, don't forget to cover yourself in mosquitoes repellent, there are so many of them - you can actually see them and hear them, we walked into a cloud of them and just ran away from the fenland.
