This book is the standard reference to hiking trails in the national parks of the Canadian Rockies. It's so indispensable that experienced hikers will often have multiple editions of this book, in order to stay current.

This edition, the seventh, is a more comprehensive revision than usual. Coverage has been expanded to include several provincial parks (including Peter Lougheed Provincial Park in the Kananaskis area, a welcome and overdue addition). There are more maps, and they've been redone: trails are numbered for easy reference. Plus updates and revisions throughout. Owners of previous editions will find it worthwhile to get this one as well.

As with previous editions, the interior photos are black and white and the package is by no means flashy, but this is a reference to be sworn by and used. It's always better to see the mountains close up, anyway. Pack this book along with your topo maps. I wouldn't be caught dead on a trail in Banff National Park without it!
