Mountain Biking Lake Minnewanka
#11 of 221 mountain bike trails in Alberta
This route mostly rides along a lake shore and has little elevation change but is beautiful and gets more tech as you near the far end of the lake. Winds along grassy hillside and forest above the lake shore. I didn't continue past the lake end as the trail toughened. Best legal singletrack in Banff NP.
Note: Trail is closed July 10 - Sep 15 each year for bear season.
