Mary’s Lunch Room Trail Description
The Mary’s Lunch Room trail is a great intermediate-length hike that will allow you to get out for some decent exercise along fairly easy and well-maintained trails, with some amazing views of the surrounding mountains. As this route is part of a dense network of hiking and mountain bike trails, it is best to bring a trail map or GPS to avoid getting lost.
Setting out on the trailhead off Marsden Street, follow the path to the southwest to begin the loop in a clockwise direction. After crossing over several small streams, you will arrive at a lookout with spectacular views across the valley to the rugged expanse of the Canadian Rockies. Once you have taken in the views and had a quick snack, continue west and cross over the creek, before turning north and completing the remainder of the trail loop through the dense forest. Eventually, you will arrive back at the trailhead on Marsden Street, where you will find your vehicle waiting to take you back home.
