This is a comprehensive, user-friendly map and guide to what there is to see and do at the Columbia Icefield - from walks and hikes to tours and exhibits.

The map combines contour lines with relief shading and covers the Columbia Icefield area, from Sunwapta Peak and Beauty Creek in Jasper National Park in the north to Mount Saskatchewan in Banff National Park to the south.

Popular trails on the map include Parker Ridge, Wilcox Pass and Nigel Pass. (Only the southern portion of the Brazeau Loop is shown on the map, from Four Point Campground northwest to just north of Jonas Pass, and from Four Point Campground northeast to just north of Wolverine South Campground.)

On the flip side are photos and information about the Columbia Icefield and the Athabasca Glacier, including answers to 14 frequently asked questions, such as How big is it? and How fast is it moving? There is also information about the history, geology, wildlife and wildflowers found in the area. Also included are descriptions and contact numbers for the Snocoach Tours, guided Ice Walks and Parks Canada's excellent displays in the Glacier Gallery. 

There are also trail descriptions of four recommended hikes, a list of the 11 highest peaks in the area, a list of services and accommodation in the area from campgrounds to lodges and a distance chart with distances and driving times to nearby towns.

Eighteen color photographs and other illustrations accompany the text, making this an excellent guide for planning a trip or a souvenir of your visit.

In addition to the standard features, this map also includes:

  • contour lines at 200-foot intervals (60 metres) 
  • relief shading
  • full color on both sides 
  • printed on waterproof material
