From July 21: Started from the upper Canmore trailhead, did a 2/3 out and back. Handful of puddles from the week of rain but all are passable. Based on the amount of loose rock on several of the descents/climbs I would suggest it should be a motivated and somewhat experienced family/kids that make this ride. The uphill return to Canmore can be arduous even for an adult in shape with proper gearing. Take the Bike Pirate recommendation and do it one way Canmore to Banff and have a pick up or use transit. Looking forward to a full attempt Banff-Canmore-Banff.
