We asked our Banff Pedicabs rider to drop us at the Fenland Trail trail-head at the end of our tour because we wanted to explore the area more. A beautiful walk through the woods and saw some Elk in there and a beaver swimming in...More

I walked this easy 2km long trail during the summer of 2016 and it is very pretty. We have just come back from Christmas in Banff and I had the pleasure of walking this again but with everything draped in snow. It was simply beautiful....More

We did an all-day bicycle tour of the Banff townsite area. When we came to Fenland Trail, we considered locking our bikes, but instead we cycled the trail slowly, stopping at each interpretive sign to read. It's a pleasant and informative trail, but not outstanding...More

Went on this little walk because it was one of the only ones still accessible without snowshoes or skis. Was beautiful in the winter but definitely doesn't compare to some of Banff's more iconic trails and hikes.

First trail of the day. What a perfect way to wake up, with the chirping of birds and rushing water in the background. We did both Fenland and Vermilion trails at once, seeing that they're both relatively short trails with no elevation whatsoever. The paths...More

It is more a stroll than a hike since the path is wheel chair friendly. Although close to Banff you feel like you're deep in the Woods.

This is an easy 2K trail, no elevations. It is well marked and wide, and takes you through a nice selection of forest just minutes from the city. Should take no more than 30-40 minutes. Parking may be a problem - room for only 10-15...More

There's no address per se. It's right on the main road as you leave Hwy 1 and come into Banff. There's parking right at the trailhead. Easy to find.
