“Beautiful Morning Walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Bow Falls was the highlight of our trail walk from downtown Banff. The trail was very well kept and the view of the Bow River and Bow Falls was excellent. What an awesome natural wonder!

“Nice place for a walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

It is very nice place for a short walk. Bow Falls are wide and powerfull. there is few places where you can look at it. Good photo opportunity. You can also walk aroud the area to look at the majestic The Fairmont Banff Spring Hotel. Worth to visit place.

“Bow Falls walk into Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

From downtown Banff walk to river bridge, along to falls, back towards town but take the signposted path to Banff Springs Hotel (beautiful) passing the Cascade Gardens ( where you can look down main street Banff). Along the way there are other attractions( museums etc). Go to info. center to get map. A very enjoyable walk.

“Nice little view. Easy to get to”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

This is one of the Banff national parks "paved views" as I like to call them. It's a nice spot with lots of parking and bathrooms and is perfect if you have seniors and kids with you. If you are in banff, you should definitely hit this spot. Personally, I think there are many much nicer and more interesting views in the park but the best ones require a hike to get to.

“A pleasant walk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Bow falls is a pleasant walk from the campground in Banff. You can also get a look at the Hoodoo's which are quite interesting. A black bear was spotted on the trail when we were there
