    Sort of. It's 10 km from Bragg Creek to West Bragg Creek trailhead on the road, but there are probably some sort of back roads to get there. From West Bragg you can ride Tom Snow to Dawson, then around to Lusk Pass, which in turn will get you to Barrier Dam. From there you can go up and over Jewell Pass to Lac des Arcs, but that puts you maybe 10 km out from the 3 Sisters development east of Canmore. You could probably follow a powerline trail to Highline, make it to Spray Lakes Road, and take Goat Creek to Banff. You could also take Rundle Riverside from the Canmore Nordic Centre. I don't know if you could do the whole thing off-road, but you could get pretty close.

    Damn, that would be an epic single-day ride...

    Have you done this recently? It seems the Lake Minnewanka trail past the warden cabin had several big washouts this spring.
