Easy Walking Loops For The Whole Family in Canmore
Take a walk and see some of Canmore's most popular sites. View maps, trail details, and photos of some easy walking loops in downtown Canmore.
Are you inspired by the view of Canmore’s spectacular Rocky Mountains, but don’t feel the need to climb Ha Ling Peak or even hike to Grassi Lakes? Is a short, in town, flat trail more your speed?
If yes, then these easy walking loops are for you!
Introducing six short, easy walking loops starting from Main Street Canmore. All walks are flat, and vary, from quiet forested trails to the open vistas of ‘The Boardwalk’ wetland loop, to the busy ‘Rail & Trail’ loop next to the Canadian Pacific Rail line. The distance of the six walking loops varies from 1.3 km to 5.6 km.
All walking loops start from the Big Head, located at Main Street and Policeman’s Creek, just west of The Drake Inn. They each feature truly stunning views in every direction. See special landmarks and unique Canmore history.
See a detailed map, the walk overview, and photos by clicking on each of the Loops.
The Boardwalk, The Creeks, Rail &Trail, Go South, Larch Loop, and The Last of US are six easy walking loops to be shared.

*Remember, in Canmore and the surrounding areas, we are lucky to live with wildlife. Always keep that in mind when walking, hiking, and spending time outdoors. It is best to walk in groups, make noise, be aware of your surroundings, always pack out your trash, secure your food, and carry & know how to use bear spray.
