Things You'll See

This short but interesting walk on the edge of the town of Banff loops through forest at the eastern edge of the Vermillion Lakes marshland. The trail runs beside the meandering waters of Echo and Forty Mile Creeks and loops through a spruce forest carpeted with bunchberry and a green cloud of horsetails.
