This new pocket guide is designed for people who are only going to be in Banff for a day or two, and want to know what to do and how to get around.
On the front is a detailed map of the Banff town site area, covering the Sundance and Sulphur Mountain areas north to Mt. Edith and Cory Passes and east to Lake Minnewanka. All the hiking and biking trails are labelled and distances are marked. You get both contour lines and the more intuitive 3-D relief shading.
On the back of the map are descriptions of the sights, museums and scenic drives in Banff, with hours of operation and admission fees noted to make it easier to plan your day. We’ve also included a hand-picked list of the ten best walks and day hikes in the area. The highlights of each trail are noted, as well as distance, elevation gain and directions to the trailhead.
Ten color photos accompany the descriptions of sights and hikes on the back of the map.
