Wonderful day cross country skiing from Goat Creek to the Banff Springs hotel. Perfect weather, sunshine glistening on the fresh powder of snow. Gentle downhill trek with breathtaking mountain views. Highly recommended

I rented a front suspension mountain bike from Ultimate Bikes in Banff this morning. I had decided to try out the Legacy Trail. As previous posts mention it's close to the highway and quite noisy. It was mostly downhill from Banff and it took me 45 mins to get into Canmore. I like cycling but am slow but sure as... More

My wife and rented fat tire mountain bikes from Rebound bikes in Canmore. Arranged for a shuttle to Goat creek from White Mountain adventures and began our wilderness ride to Banff. This was our first time on a mountain bike in 20 years and definitely the first on the new 4 inch plus fat tires. The bikes were great cruising... More

My wife and two teenage sons did this ride. We left from the Goat Creek trailhead and road into Banff. There were a few difficult spots and some uphills but the overall experience was absolutely fantastic (and none of my other family members are mountain bikers.) Starting at the Goat Creek trailhead means that you're cruising down hill about 90%... More

It's a beautiful ride....BUT it's pretty difficult for non experienced mountain bikers. Me and my family went on the trail and we had to walk up some parts because it was very Rocky with loose rocks. So be careful!! Be prepared to bike up and down steep hills with a lot of loose rocks...i wouldn't do it again, but it... More

This is an awesome hiking/biking/cross country skiing or snowshoeing area. It is a lot more quiet than other well known trails or areas around Canmore. It is a superb trail that goes to Canmore/Banff. It is not paved in case anyone is wondering so in the summer you need mountain bikes. Just recently went there snowshoeing which we have in... More

This was a truly beautiful trail with the fall colors, the mountain views and the creek down below. A fairly easy trail for a leisurely afternoon.

I did this trail one way from Canmore side to Banff Springs Hotel and went through town to Vermillion Lakes at the entrance to Banff townsite. My wife dropped me off at the trail head on the Spray Lakes road and I met her at Vermillion Lakes where she was relaxing in a lawn chair. Ends up being a relatively... More

I had heard about this biking trail from Canmore to Banff and had wanted to try it since we had done the legacy trail several times already. You definitely need a mountain bike for this trail as there are sections where it is extremely rocky. Going to Banff was the fun part as most of it was downhill. But not... More

If you start at the Canmore end, this is a pretty easy and fun bike ride with a gentle downhill run for about 90% of the trail. Nice views along the way and a good chance of spotting wildlife up close. Bring your camera and bring your bear spray.
