Hiking in Banff National Park Features Some of the Best Trails to Be Found in the Canadian Rockies

Summer day hikes in Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies. Banff National Park has 6,641 square kilometers of land comprising snow-capped mountains, valleys green with conifer forests, ancient glaciers and alpine meadows. The opportunities for casual strolls, day hikes and multi-day trekking is boundless, and some of it is the best you’ll find anywhere.

Whether you are looking for strenuous hikes with scenic views of the Canadian Rockies as a reward, or more leisurely strolls that will offer you plenty of chances to indulge in nature and wildlife photography, there is a hike in or around Banff that is for you.

Fortunately there are many hikes just a short car ride outside of the Banff town; we’ve listed several of the most popular ones here; just follow the links below or in the center column on the right.

There are of course a multitude of other hikes and trails in Banff National Park, most of which originate in the Bow Valley between Banff town and Lake Louise. These trailheads are located along the Trans-Canada Highway, the Bow Valley Parkway, and Highway 93 Icefields Parkway.

If you’re interested in a guided hiking tour with a group or hiking on a private guided tour, these things are available with many of the local tour operators.
