Redearth Creek Professional Review and Guide
"Redearth Creek separates the sheer faces of Pilot and Copper Mountains. While it is not a technically challenging ride, it does offer a pleasant way to roll your way through the mountains of Banff National Park. This ride also offers possibilities for a great hike-and-bike. From the terminus, hiking trails radiate in many directions. To the west, Shadow Lake is the closest body of water, but longer hikes include Egypt Lake, Ball Pass, and Gibbon Pass. Be sure to have a good map and an early start if you plan to attempt any of these options. Along the ride, your are treated to excellent views toward Copper Mountain on your right an Pilot Mountain to the left. Behind you, the sheer cliffs of the Sawback Range dominate."

We used this trail to get to Shadow Lake Lodge. It's the easiest access since there are no passes to go over. The first 9 miles, on a forest road (no vehicles except bikes) is a bit tedious, but there are occasional views through the trees. The trail part has more views and one steep section, but is also quite easy. The real beauty comes in the trails accessible from Shadow Lake, which access fabulous views and glacial cirques.
