Legacy Trail is Officially Open from Canmore to Banff

by Louise Fuller

September is quickly becoming the new “summer”.  Alberta blue skies and warm temperatures are daily occurrences!

The weather was spectacular for the Friday September 13, 2013 official opening of the additional 4 Km stretch of paved trail connecting Canmore with the east Banff Park Gate.  This was the last section to be finished.

The Legacy trail connects Banff and Canmore … there is now complete and easy connection between the 2 towns without any highway sections.  No more riding along the TransCanada shoulder with traffic whizzing by at 100 km plus!

After a busy day at work, hopping on your road bike and heading out to Banff is a great de-stressor and can even be considered a relaxing activity!

Definitely a quality of life improvement!
