From coast-to-coast, easy to intense, we’ve rounded up the best spots to take a hike this season. Mike Young, hiking expert with Merrell footwear, shares the best routes to take, which are guaranteed to take you places.
Banff National Park, Alberta
With over 1,600km of winding trails that vary from easy to hard, the vistas and views are breathtaking at every turn within Canada’s oldest national park.
Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta
This park has a similar terrain to Banff’s but with one waterfront town instead of several large villages. Find a wide range of trails that will take you under an hour to several days. Try the Tamarack trail, which is 32-km long with 8,500 feet elevation, for a more challenging hike that can take two to three days.
