“Great Place for a Run”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

I like to run when I'm travelling. Once I made my way down to the valley I found the trails were really great for running. Check out the stairs on the north side of the river if you're in for a challenge.

“Nothing like a nice walk along the Bow”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

Walk or ride a bike. It's very relaxing to walk along the Bow River. The paths could be longer. Stop and sit on a bench to soak in sunshine and admire this nice river

“Beautiful river”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

We liked Bow River when we visited Banff and the Icefield Parkway. Don't miss Bow Falls at Banff, it's a great site.

“The flood has changes the river”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

The recent flood has totally changed the bow river, you may have had your favorite spot but it is probably gone with something new to discover! Take a walk along the river and you never know what you are going to see, what an adventure. The fishing is just as good as before!

“Nice waterfront pathway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Bow river sets at the edge of the downtown district. Very peaceful and nice walk on the path next to the water.
