This little boardwalk pathway is a lovely bit of nature in the centre of Canmore. Great open views of the mountains, wildlife and flora. Nice way to walk to or from the centre of town. Kids will love seeing the ducks.

a pleasant walkway across marsh and creek with potential for viewing ducks and other bird life. Definitely not a shortcut into town, but a pleasant diversion!

This walk is right at the heart of Canmore, and has continued to be expanded over the years. Hikers, cyclists, nature enthusiasts -- all can enjoy this walk. The walk begins with wooden plank coverage and then continues to concrete and level rock surfaces. Resting areas dot the area.

Pretty much exactly what you'd expect. Gets you from point a to point b in about the same amount of time as walking down the road except with nicer views. Lets out in a empty lot by the railway where occasionally you have to walk around a strange vehicle. Needs some maintenance and definitely not recommended for a rainy day... More

Charming trail through Canmore and along the creek, not a must do, but certainly a nice side adventure if you can find the time.

We stayed in the Swift Creek Condos and took this short trail from the condo to downtown. It is not a crowded trail and absolutely picturesque. Go early in the morning and you can see the reflection of the mountains in the water. Beautiful scenery on this walk. Actually saw a man painting the backdrop of the mountains from the... More
