About an hour from Trinity Hills, you'll find majestic mountain views in picturesque Canmore. The town is only about 15 minutes from Banff, but the crowds are far fewer. The Rocky Mountain Legacy Trail is a 26-kilometre, multi-use path for hikers, cyclists, rollerbladers and runners. It connects directly with the town of Banff. There are many options for accommodations in Canmore -- from camping and hostels to luxury resorts and hotels.
Kananaskis is only about 45 minutes from Trinity Hills, making it an easy escape for anyone who loves hiking, biking, wildlife viewing and camping in one of the most beautiful places imaginable. You can fish and picnic the day away at Forgetmenot Pond. Winter offers cross-country ski trails and the Nakiska Ski Area offers 79 downhill runs.
Set among the stunning scenery of rolling foothills, prairies and the Rocky Mountains is a 700-kilometre paved trail known as The Cowboy Trail. It spans from Mayerthorpe all the way down to Cardston near the US border. The town of Sundre is about an hour north of Trinity Hills. It combines much of the best The Cowboy Trail has to offer. You can camp, ride horses, watch wild horses, go rafting on the Red Deer River, go hiking, mountain biking or play a round of golf. The hardest part is figuring out what to do first.
We hope these great weekend trips help you explore what is all around you when you call Trinity Hills your home.
