In the fall of 1883, three Canadian Pacific Railway construction workers stumbled across a cave containing hot springs on the eastern slopes of Alberta's Rocky Mountains. From that humble beginning was born Banff National Park, Canada's first national park and the world's third. Spanning 6,641 square kilometres (2,564 square miles) of valleys, mountains, glaciers, forests, meadows and rivers, Banff National Park is one of the world's premier destination spots.

Love this place. Have been twice in the last year. Both summer and winter have their own unique beauty. Only downside is it can get very busy in the afternoon, so go early.

My husband and I ended up doing this short hike in late August when the trail we wanted to do closed due to weather. It is a short hike with beautiful scenery even on a very rainy, snowy, cold, cloudy day. Mirror lake is a beautiful spot to take in the moment. The tea house at the top was very busy but a great spot to warm up. I would do this hike again but Cary on to the other tea houses. Note: parts of the trail are shared with horses.

I did this one in the summer. It was an awesome trip. made it up to the big bee hive. scenery was awesome.

Very easy quick hike up. Took almost an hour to summit. The views were great for sunrise. Lot's of people on the way down.

Loved loved loved this one! Quite easy, long and wonderful. We didnt make it all the way up to the lake because it was icy and we were with my mother in law, but i would definitely finish it in the summer and climb all the way up!

Awesome. Went up on Dec 30, 2016. Lots of snow but trails had been packed down with previous traffic, so I didn't need snow shoes. Very nice scenery. Will come back in the summer!

AWESOME, fairly easy hike. Grizzlies included!
