Canadian Rockies Hiking Blog

Probably no one knows more about hiking in the Canadian Rockies than Brian Patton, co-author of what the locals refer to as "the hiker's bible," the Canadian Rockies Trail Guide, first published in 1971 and now in its 9th edition.

We invite you to check out Brian's Canadian Rockies Hiking Blog. This particular post happens to be about Gem Trek maps :), but we trust you'll find lots of other interesting posts about hiking in Banff, Jasper, Yoho, Kootenay and Waterton Lakes national parks, as well as in Kananaskis Country.
