Default Family overnight hikes near calgary

Hello everyone !
We are flying in the last week of august to Calgary.
We love overnight hikes and we haven't been to western canada so far
The thing is that we are coming with three children (8/6/8m) and I wonder if any of you is familiar with overnight hikes that might work with children. In other words - maximum 10 km per day, no steep climbing and safe campground. We will to the hike to Aylmer lookout (https://goo.gl/maps/5FGqRV9SRfgbio3L6) and I wonder if you have other ideas (Not necessarily in Banff)

Thanks in Advance
Dani

One idea would be Point campground at upper Kananaskis lake

Undemanding hike in, can do loop on return and quite scenic (current banner photo on ClubTread was taken there). Other idea would be Elbow lake base with day hikes to places like Rae Lake or Rae glacier or Tombstone lakes.

I wish you were closer to Berg Lake. I always suggest this as thee best, family friendly hike out there. Lots of stops. Safe. Beautiful in and out. I took my kids when they were 10 and 7 and even did snowbird pass. Not entirely safe, and not for new hikers, but we were extra precautions and did it without incident. Did it another time with other moms and kids and they all want to go back. Put it on the agenda!
