Hiking in Banff National Park is exquisite, with untouched beauty, varied views and lots of game. With such a large park, this region only focuses on the hikes close to Banff townsite.
This incredible hike through Edith and Cory Passes is the most varied hike close to Banff. This circuit takes in a number of different micro ecosystems – from a steep and dry ridge, to an arid pass, back through a lush forest. Be aware of some modest scrambling sections (both up and down) on the approach to Cory Pass.
