25 km one-way, easy gradient
The Legacy Trail links the communities of Banff and Canmore via a 25km paved trail without motorized traffic. The trail parallels the Trans-Canada highway. This route is approved for E-Bikes, there is a washroom, and many beautiful views of the mountains and Bow River.
It can be fun to ride to Canmore for lunch or coffee, and then ride back to Banff. Depending on your pace, it is around 1.5 - 2 hours each way. Or go partway and turn around wherever you like.
The trail can be busy during weekends and holidays. Use caution and share the trail.
