Banff - Lake Minnewanka - Banff
A great way to start your Banff cycling adventure. This route starts from the shop and takes you around the scenic loop beside the famous Banff Springs Golf course. After a nice flat warm up, climb over Tunnel mountain drive and pass the campgrounds over the Tunnel Mountain Bench to the east end of the Legacy Trail to Cascade Ponds. Follow the route to the Minnewanka Loop, riding and gradually climbing to beautiful Lake Minnewanka, the largest lake in our park. Pass the lake and climb a bit more above Two Jack Lake, and then descend back down to Cascade Ponds. Retrace your route to town on the Legacy Trail, returning to the town centre on Banff Avenue, right back to the shop. Looking for a shorter, easier variation, just ride the first loop around the golf course.
See us in the shop for more variations or longer rides, we can satisfy all your cycling goals!
