Dedicated Horse Trail


In 2019, Town Council approved construction of a dedicated horse trail between Sundance Road and Birch Avenue, running parallel to an existing multi-use trail. A dedicated horse trail outside the recreation area was originally approved in the Recreation Grounds Master Plan as a way to avoid safety issues that can occur when horses, cyclists, pedestrians, and joggers use the same trail.

Horse Trail

The dedicated horse trail will be completed in fall 2022 (blue in map above). The existing multi-use trail (yellow in map above) will be closed to all users except trail ride horses and staff twice a day ( morning and evening) as the horses are transported between the stables and the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel.
