Graeme Pole has been writing professionally since 1989. We are spending a week with children in the Canadian Rockies and this was the PERFECT choice to lead us to short hikes, walks and points of interest.
Graeme Pole has been writing professionally since 1989. He is the best-selling author and photographer of six non-fiction books that describe the human history and the natural history of western Canada: Canadian Rockies SuperGuide (1991, 1997), The Canadian Rockies: A History in Photographs (1991), Walks and Easy Hikes in the Canadian Rockies (1992, 1996), Classic Hikes in the Canadian Rockies (1994, 2003), The Spiral Tunnels and The Big Hill. Great descriptions and photos.
This is the perfect hiking/walking guide for travelers who aren't in the best physical condition. We, along with my parents who are in their 70's, spent an intense 10 days in the parks covered by this book. This one did exactly what we wanted it to: it gave us an idea of which hikes to do (with so much choice and so little time), and they all lived up to what the description promised in the book.
In fact, Walks and Easy Hikes provides all the information you need to experience the magnificent mountain environment of the Canadian Rockies from trails and paths that start right beside the road. Each hike is introduced with detailed route and trailhead instructions. Full colour maps indicate the location and direction of each hike and point out the outstanding landscape features. The hike descriptions are supplemented with important information on history, geology and nature.
A comprehensive guide to all the best walks and easy hikes in Canada's Rocky Mountains, ideal for casual explorers of all ages, abilities, and interests. Each hike is introduced with detailed route and trailhead instructions, full-color maps, and hike descriptions supplemented with important information on history, geology, and nature.
A guide to easy hiking and walking trails in the Canadian Rockies. Ideal for people of all abilities and young families. Included are full-colour maps, trailhead descriptions, hiking descriptions, and information on history, geology and nature. Ideal for. Day hiking.
Banff guide with just day walks and short hikes called "50 Walks and Hikes in Banff" There's overlap, but it is much smaller to carry around. One more author who makes hiking Guides is Graeme Pole, he has written quite a few however your other choices will give you a good enough overview I think. I would recommend getting a good map as well. Your moon guide will let you know where to find the Banff and Jasper Gondolas which take you up to short walks at a high elevation, but as DCH said above, it's nothing like the Switzerland systems.

Hiking is the preferred term, in Canada and the United States, for a long, vigorous walk, usually on trails (footpaths), in the countryside, while the word walking is used for shorter, particularly urban walks. On the other hand, in the United Kingdom, and the Republic of Ireland, the word "walking" is acceptable to describe all forms of walking, whether it is a walk in the park or backpacking in the Alps.
We found a book, "Walks and easy hikes in the Canadian Rockies" by Graeme Pole to be quite helpful. When they were in the carrier, they wanted out, and when they had walked 20, 30 yards, they wanted back in the carrier. It gave us lots of options for short hikes and some idea of how strenuous they would be. We huffed and puffed our way up some hikes, but thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Up, down, up, down, etc. As someone else noted, that's when you move to the one hour, one mile hike.
