This is a forest trail crossing Goat Creek and the Spray River to join the Spray River Fire Road in Banff National Park. The trail goes to Banff townsite; most of it is in the national park.


There may not be access to the Goat Creek trailhead due to daily road closures on HWY 742 between Ken Ritchie Way and the end of The Narrows (near the Spray Ranger Station). Please visit https://511.alberta.ca/ to confirm whether access is possible before your trip. The trail remains accessible from the Spray River Trailhead in Banff.
