From downtown Canmore:
Go West on Bow Valley Trail until you get to the overpass. Cross the highway - you'll see exits heading for Banff and Harvey Heights - go past these and you'll be on Palliser Trail going East. The Spring is right there pretty much. You will see a speed sign on your right (50km/hour). Once you see that sign find a place to park - the entrance to the Spring is across the road on the left side.
From the sunny side of Canmore:
Head to Harvey Heights on Palliser Trail(road to Harvey Heights). The spring trail head is just past the yellow and red stop sign on the right side of the road just before you get to the overpass.
My kids being goofballs ‘directing’ you to the spring! (-: My kids have grown up getting “Mother Earth” water - that’s what they call the water from the spring. I love the weekly ritual of it - it is such a peaceful spot to visit.
