The walking trails that are found by the Bow River in Cochrane are very pretty and we really enjoyed our leisurely walk. The scenery is lovely and changes depending which direction you choose to go.

This is a nice easy walk along the river. Paved paths with lots of interesting signage. There is also a kid's nature playground, picnic tables and fire pits. Some of the prettiest parts of Cochrane are along this trail.
