Read from the Book

When we set out to write a trail guide in 1970, thehiking trails of Banff National Park were the ones we knew best and the focusfor our project. We’d hiked enough at that point in our young lives to knowthat this park contained more great short hikes and day trips than any similararea in North America.While our initial plan to publish a trail guide to Banff National Park was soonreplaced by the more grandiose Canadian Rockies Trail Guide, we knew the section on Banff—andLake Louise in particular—would be the most-used section of the book. Inaddition to being Canada’s most-visited national park, it contains aconcentration of 18 trails in and around the Lake Louise region, all of whichcan be completed in a day or less. Many of these trips include high alpine lakesalong the way or as a primary destination—a big plus for most hikers. Othertrails lead to high viewpoints overlooking the Bow Valley and glaciated peaks.So, many years after originally planning a guidebook dedicated to Banff, wehave created the Lake Louise Hiking Guide. This bookcontains more elements of value to the walker and day-hiker than the Canadian Rockies TrailGuide, including useful and interesting facts about each trail,colour topographical maps, and colour photographs. Most importantly, for uspersonally, this book is an opportunity to highlight the trails that have beena special part of our lives for over four decades. There isn’t a single trailin this book that we haven’t hiked on numerous occasions and at all the monthsof the hiking season. We hope you receive as much pleasure from these trips aswe have.
