With 5 national parks and numerous other provincial parks established in the Canadian Rockies, these mountains are meant to be hiked.
Even though I managed to tick off quite a few amazing day hikes in both the Alberta and British Colombia part of the Rockies, I still feel like I have only scratched the surface.
