On a sunny day Sundance Canyon Trail is a popular destination. Along this 4.32-mile out-and-back, you'll pass hikers, inline skaters, horseback riders- oh, and yes, cyclists. The paved trail may be the initial attraction, but the open panorama alongside the lazy channel of the Bow River brings riders back time and again. Rolling your way along this trail, there are endless views of Cascade Mountain and Mounts Norquay, Edith, and Louis. Benches placed strategically along the river make for a pleasant place to get off your bike and simply drink in the magic around you. The ride is best done as a hike-and-bike. Ride for 2.16 miles to the end of the pavement; then walk the 1.25-mile interpretive trail around the actual canyon.
