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:
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
Allen Bill to Forget-me-not Pond – 38.3 km (Elbow Falls)
Great Divide Highway 1A – 21 km
An eighth option is Morraine Lake Road. This one did 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. But starting in 2023 Morraine Lake Road will be permanently closed to all motor vehicles (except Parks Canada Buses) We will update you on this soon.
Did we miss any closed roads that are road cycling friendly? Please let us know.
