Banff National Park hiking map - Gem Trek. This user-friendly map-guide includes a 1:250,00-scale poster-quality
map of Canada's most popular national park, as well as useful and
entertaining information about everything from mountain building to
Banff Park wildlife.
The map covers Banff National Park as well as Yoho and Kootenay
national parks. It shows roads, viewpoints, attractions, lodges and
glaciers, and gives the name and elevation of mountains.
Contour lines at 200-metre (650-ft) intervals give map-users a
good idea of the lay of the land. The map also shows official park
trails, although it is not intended as a hiking map.
On the back of the map are photos and descriptions of the highlights
of the park, including sights and attractions in Banff townsite and
area, Lake Louise, and along the Icefields Parkway. There are also
descriptions of the park's geology, history, wildlife, and eco-regions.
Practical information on outdoor activities and local weather is
also included, as well as contact names and numbers, allowing map users
to plan their trip accordingly. This full colour, two-sided map-guide,
enclosed in a hard cover, makes it easy to find your way around the park
and is a perfect souvenir at the end of your trip.
