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.

It was a beautiful up hill trek with lots of places to rest. Heavily trafficked with very friendly hikers. I hiked with a beginner hiker and she felt it was difficult, but made it to the top with only a few stops.

While an extremely beautiful hike, with the weather this time of year it is extremely dangerous. If you’re going up now make sure you have snow shoes, the snow is 3+ feet deep once you hit about 3.25 miles in (probably more now). The trail is not visible anymore. The weather was so bad when we hit 3.5 miles we had to turn around right before the Mt. Edith/Cory Pass crossing.

Nice trail, with some great views of the falls. No gear needed.

A steady incline of infinite switchbacks. A much better way than paying $60 on the gondola to get up Sulphur, but not the most interesting of hikes. Most of the time is spent switchbacking under the gondola.
