Hiking & Biking

Let's hit the trails

Canmore’s varied landscape was made for blazing trails, and we’ve got hundreds of kilometres of them to explore, on foot or on two wheels. Being outside here is so great even biking is above the ordinary. Sure, you can go for a regular scenic bike ride, but also adrenaline-pumping mountain biking (naturally), and fat biking. If you’ve never heard of it, brace yourself. Extra large tires, hand warmers (that’s right, hand warmers!), and the ability to ride snow-covered trails with ease, fat biking opens up a whole new world. Stroll valleys, discover waterfalls, glacier-fed lakes, alpine meadows, and climb towering jagged peaks.
