I will be traveling to Banff with some friends of mine from university in the next few weeks, and was wondering if anyone could take a look at some hikes we picked out. We are all experienced hikers, and in good shape, so we should be fine with any day hikes under 25km, Here is what I was thinking in terms of hiking. We are staying at the Lake Louise tent campground for the first nights.
Day 1: Johnston canyon early (avoid crowds) afternoon open
Day 2: Iceline trail, Yoho
Day 3: Plain of six glaciers, kayaking in the afternoon?
Day 4: Sentinal pass, Mt Temple weather permitting
Day 5: Helen lake to cirque peak
Backpacking: Mt. Assiniboine via Marvel lake and Wonder pass (spending night at mavel lake on the way in and out)
Three days planned in Mt. Assiniboine area
Day 1: Nub peak and lakes
Day 2: Windy ridge
Day 3: open, looking for suggestions
If anyone has any other rewarding hikes or general advice, I would love to hear it!
Thanks for the help!
