Rocky Mountains Trip List
 

These are all Canadian Rockies trips that can be found on the site.  Within each group trips are listed alphabetically by name. The list is sortable; click on headers to sort by corresponding column.  Unless otherwise specified, Distance and Time metrics are given for return trip while Elevation column shows cumulative elevation gain. Follow the link for detail report about that trip;  most have map and GPS track you can download.  If you find GPS track useful,  please consider supporting the site by disabling add blocker and clicking on Google Add,  usually found below gallery for each trip report.

 

Trips are grouped in following sections:

 

  1. Alberta Foothills
  2. Kananaskis 
  3. Canmore and Bow Valley
  4. Banff - Louise
  5. Kootenays
  6. Yoho
  7. Icefields (Lake Louise to Banff/Jasper boundary)
  8. Jasper

 

The list documents only a fraction of trips as I have not been methodically documenting my outings from the beginning.  If you are interested in some area you can not find, chances are I've been there & can provide information, so feel free to contact me using this link
