The trail from Cascade Pond to Johnson Lake is a relatively quiet but spectacular 2.68-mile singletrack. The views include the Fairholme Range and Mount Allan to the east and southeast, Mount Rundle to the south, and Cascade Mountain and Mount Bourgeau to the east. A ride you will want to do again and again, it's relatively quiet, but the views are unsurpassed, focusing on the classic peaks of the Bow Valley.
