Stay on the designated trails!!!!, Banff National Park
Hiking up the Bow Summit is beautiful ,and for younger hikers it will be a snap ,but for older folks at can be a tricky hike .
The path is paved ,and it it not really that bad , but it is full of melting Ice and Snow .
I suggest to take it easy and be careful going up ,it will take somewhere between 15-20 minutes to hike up this Summit ,and it is well worth it. Good luck if you go.
When trying to find the trail between the Citadel Peak and the Brewster Creek, you should follow the stone heaps. If you get lost you can find the trail, after two small lakes on the right side of the creek (this is where the creek starts!) - you can see the two lakes in the background of the picture I added. It is a horse trail and thus not very easy to hike!
