Have been here both summer and winter. Gorgeous views and quiet. Well laid out trails from the town of Banff near the railroad tracks for an easy walk and close to Tim Hortons for a coffee afterwards to warm up! We kayaked on the lakes this past summer and enjoyed the peacefulness. Saw an eagle swoop down and grab a fish from the water! Very cool! Lots of wedding photos are taken out here.

Normally this would be a great drive, however I choose to walk a portion of the way. It is very beautiful at winter time, and I have been told this is where the wolves hang out also.

The views are unbelievable, especially Mt Rundle in the twilight. We always see wildlife. Binoculars & a camera are a must.

Good walking paths even on winter, lots of wildlife and plenty of beautiful views. Short and long trails available. Dogs allowed if you cleanup!
