I’m often moving through Canmore at a quick pace – in a car, on a bike, passing through on the way to numerous trailheads, or for a quick bite after a day in the mountains.
A recent trip to Canmore had me slow down a little, and included a stay at A Bear and Bison Inn. How nice to stay on the “sunny side” of Canmore, where I discovered some great new patio spaces, bakeries, and terrific views of the Three Sisters.
Just a quick glide down the hill links you to the “Legacy Trail”, a paved bike path that connects Canmore to Banff and has since successfully re-built some sections after the June floods.
The Inn, located on the now infamous Cougar Creek, was also affected by the floods – the water came within five inches of the A-frame structure, but the Inn was very lucky. You can read more about my stay here.
