What are your favorite hikes in Banff?

Jump to last reply

We are leaving for Banff this weekend (staying in Canmore for the week). Looking for suggestions on day hikes in the Canmore/Banff area. What are your favorites? I have "Dont Waste Your Time in the Canadian Rockies", but it is a bit overwhelming. We unfortunately won't have time for Jasper on this trip. We are fit 30-somethings that love hiking so welcome recommendations for good scenery coupled with good exercise.

Some of the hikes already on my list for the week are:

Lake O’Hara to Lake McArthur - is it too late to get reservations on the shuttle bus?
Lake Eiffel
Emerald Lake
Plain of Six Glaciers - is this the same as the hike to Lake Agnes
