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.

Tunnel is a good first mountain climb experience. The path is wide and feels safe. Nice views of Banff and the golf course.

Great hike-a bit dicey at the end because of the cold and snow was coming harder than we expected. On a clear day I think it would have been much better! Views are so incredible we just stopped and soaked it all in along the way.

Short and steady climb. Paved path.
Great view of the lake once you’re at the top.

Amazing views!! I've done this hike a couple times now and it never gets boring!! Definitely recommend.

This should be downgraded to a moderate hike. It was a challenge in some aspects but more on the moderate side.

Johnston Canyon is apparently where you take your small kids, great grandparents, or less than fit out of town visitors to see waterfalls. Too crowded! So many tourists in flip flops moving slowly. The hike past the waterfalls was at least a bit of a workout, but the ink pots we're not an amazing sight. It was a nice and peaceful break from the crowd though.
