Cycling the Rocky Mountain Legacy Trail – 2017 Edition

This year, we cycled the Rocky Mountain Legacy Trail from mid-May through mid-October, when the trail officially closed for the winter. Thanks to a wide range of extensions available on either end, our rides ranged from 53 to 86 km and included a good mix of destinations in both Canmore and Banff. Amazing scenery and minimal elevation change make this a "must ride" trail for those visiting Canmore/Banff during the riding season.

Cycling from Three Sisters to Cascade Ponds

Constructed to celebrate the 125th anniversary of Banff National Park, the Banff Legacy Trail comprises a significant part of any bike ride between Three Sisters in Canmore and Cascade Ponds just outside of Banff. The ride west has a slight incline and is often against the wind. The ride east is a little easier. But be sure to check the weather forecast before heading out. Getting caught in a thunderstorm while riding a bike is not a great situation!
