1 hour 5 minutes moving, though we were out nearly 2 hours total.

The Marsh Loop is a short trail on the west end of Banff Townsite that makes a loop past the Cave and Basin and along the River.
Along the way, you walk past the warm water flowing down from the hot springs, and around a small marshly pond.

The boardwalk along the springs seeps.
