Bow Valley Bike Path is a paved trail which runs from the administration and info centre building at the Bow Valley Provincial Park to the RV campground located in the park. The campsite is about 4.3 km west of the admin/info building. A tranquil and scenic path, the trail is great for those camping in the area and looking to get out on their bikes for a spin. It is a multi-use path, ridden as an out-and-back, so watch out for runners and hikers strolling along this trail.

The paved trail runs along gently rolling terrain surrounded by the forest and meadows that open up with some great views. A great trail to be enjoyed with the kids.
