Trail Description
About this trail
Goat Creek Trail follows Goat Creek (go figure) and then Spray River into Banff. This is a fairly easy ride.
Once arriving in Banff at the Banff Springs Hotel, follow the road leading past Bow Falls to the Banff Springs
Golf Course. Ride past the bridge for 2.9 km and take the fork right for another 1.4 km to the Rundle
Riverside trailhead and follow back to Canmore. this trail is significantly more challenging as it follows the
Bow River.

Q: Are there any technical areas on this trail? I'm from Saskatchewan and have only ever mountain bikes in the valleys close to home. I want to start getting into the mountains but I'm not sure where to start -Guest

Review: If you start at the Trailheadhead of Goat Creek above Canmore, and descend to Banff, this trail can be done by novices from about age 8. The first half is gently descending all the way, and the second half is up and down above the Creek. Transit time with children is about 3 hours.

Review: Great trail. Ride from Canmore to Banff is mostly descending so fast ride. If you plan to ride round trip start in Banff to do the climbing on fresh legs. Took about 4 hrs round trip. Fun trail.
