The Seven Closed Roads – Recommend as an early season goal

As promised we have compiled a list of the Seven Closed (to motor vehicle traffic) Roads for you to put on your bucket list. Here they are:

Yoho Valley Road

Canmore – Lake Minnewanka Loop via the Legacy Trail – 56 km (Lake Minnewanka)

Banff to Lake Louise – 111 km (Bow Valley Parkway)

Highwood Pass – Multiple Distances

Sheep River Ride – Spring Road Closure Delight – 35.4 km (Please see our 2022 update on this route)

Allen Bill to Forget-me-not Pond – 38.3 km (Elbow Falls)

Great Divide Highway 1A from Lake Louise towards Field

An eighth option is Morraine Lake Road. This one does not make it on the list officially, as usually there may only be a one to two day window to ride this without motor vehicles and it varies year by year.

Did we miss any closed roads that are road friendly? Please let us know.
