Hiking Canada is a big topic. The trails we prefer to hike concentrate on the Rocky Mountains of Alberta and British Columbia. We like massive scenery: glaciers, big valleys, rushing rivers, thundering waterfalls, soaring peaks, and turquoise lakes. All this and so much more thrills day hikers and backpackers alike who trek into the Canadian Rockies.
Over the years, we have hiked most of the trails in the Canadian Rockies National and Provincial Parks. There are four National Parks whose names are well known around the world: Banff, Jasper, Yoho and Kootenay.
Waterton Lakes National Park, adjacent to Glacier National Park in the USA, is also a favorite hiking destination of ours.
Unfortunately, for many years of hiking these amazing trails, we did not even own a camera! But, we hope we can excite you with the photographs and stories we do have recorded. There will be many more adventures added to these pages as time permits.
Hiking Canada-Guide books
There are numerous hiking guides for the Canadian Rockies that are available through Amazon.
Our absolute favorite guide book is titled, Don’t Waste Your Time in the Canadian Rockies.
Why do we like it so much? Because, as it says on the cover, it’s an opinionated guide. We still have our original copy from many years past. There is a new edition coming out February 2015 selling for $53.96. There are 677 pages.
We know nothing about the other guides available.
