Hiking trails around Banff area

Jump to last reply

I am heading to Banff National Park with 3 friends from Aug 26-Aug 30, so we have 3 full days of hiking. Looking to do between 10-20km per day and trying to see the best parts of the park, but also some diversity. I have a few hikes in mind, but am also looking for other suggestions:

1) Lake Louise to Plain of Six Glaciers teahouse then to Lake Agnes and the beehives

2) Hiking in from the Lake Annette/Paradise valley trail head then going over Sentinel pass and out through Moraine lake (hitch-hike back to the car from Moraine lake). Wondering if this would be better to do in the opposite direction?

3) The hike up to Caldron Lake

4) Hike up to Iceberg lake

5) Emerald Triangle and Burgess Highline trail

Also am possibly looking for hikes closer to the town of Banff, as I am planning on camping at Two Jack Lakeside campsite as it seems to be the nicest site (even though its at least an hour drive from all the hikes I want to do)

Thanks!!!
