“Beautiful Easy Hike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Want to experience a beautiful woods and river hike on flat ground? It's short and easy. That's the great thing about the area - there is something for every age and skill level.

“Peaceful getaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

On a hot day, this is perfect for a casual stroll under canopy of the trees alongside the streams with their green-blue colour. You can also deviate fro the 1.5km trail and walk back into town or further onto Vermillion Lakes and join the main trail by the Trans Canada Highway. New toilets at trailhead and newly paved car park make this a good stopping place for older less able adults or families with young children.

“A nice hike”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

This is a small spot and kind of hard to locate, but a nice hike, more of a woodland spot. I was there very early in the morning and the only other person there was a birder with his camera.

“Not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

If you like walking and want a walk through woods then this is for you. Many different views as you go around make it ok. I was disappointed but many people do take this path.

“Great little trail with lots of wildlife.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013 via mobile

We got to see beaver, elk, deer, eagle, muskrat, squirrel and goose, all in one small hike. We may have lucked out with all the animal sightings, but I recommend this walk for anyone coming to Banff.
