Done in a Day: Banff

The Ten Premier Hikes

Where to invest your limited hiking time to enjoy the greatest scenic reward.

Imagine the earth's topography is a physical manifestation of sound. Hills would be yawns. Bigger mountains would be yells. And the peaks in the Canadian Rockies would be screams, howls, shrieks, screeches and roars.

You can wander into the vastness and be swallowed by it, evading human contact for weeks. Or, with this unique, intelligent, entertaining book in hand, you can invest your limited Banff hiking time precisely where you'll enjoy the greatest scenic reward.

Choose an easy, vigorous, or challenging Banff dayhike. Start your adventure within a short drive of town. Witness the wonder of Banff National Park. Then return to Banff townsite for a hot shower, great meal, and soft bed.
