First two campsites had awesome views. After that it felt like we should of adjusted days to camp in the sites that were below the passes but still in the open valleys but that would require more days or a very long day. Hiked with my Brother September 1st thru September 6th, 2019 and it rained most nights. Heavy horse erosion all over Banff that only got slightly better as the trip went on, so if it rains your path will be very muddy. Water was never an issue and we only carried 2L each max and never ran out. Trail finding was hard multiple times. Little signage on trail and alltrails is sometimes off, carry a map.
