Why walk on a sidewalk on a busy street to get downtown when you can take a stroll along a boardwalk with great views of the Rocky Mountains. So glad my boyfriend told me about this so we could use it to walk to and from our hotel in the other side of TC1 to downtown Canmore. Very easy walk,... More

One end of the boardwalk is very close to the Giant Head. It is a scenic walk with lots of close up views of the creek, marsh lands, many stunted trees, and the mountains in the background. It is flat, not very far and very easy. We did this in the afternoon as a way to burn off our lunch.... More

Had some of our Wedding photos taken there as it is such beautiful scenery. If in Canmore take the time to enjoy this short, easy walk. Best views walking west.

The Policeman's Creek Boardwalk was the perfect way to start our first day in Canmore. Our whole family really enjoyed the beautiful views of the mountains. Easily accessible from downtown Canmore.

After shopping around Canmore why not take a scenic walk before dinner? This boardwalk stroll is very pretty. Don't miss the photo op on the bridge!
