Maps for Yoho National Park

Lake Louise & Yoho - Trail Map and Guide

This is the 9th edition of our bestselling trail map and hiking guide to the Lake Louise and Yoho area. The front of the map shows the popular trail networks around the Chateau Lake Louise and Lake Louise Village, Moraine Lake, Skoki Valley, Emerald Lake, Yoho Valley, and Lake O'Hara. The National Topographic Series (1:50,000 government maps) requires four map sheets to cover these same trail networks.

The back of the Lake Louise and Yoho trail map and hiking guide features information on recommended hikes for views, wildflowers, birds, waterfalls, and rainy days. Photos and trail descriptions, which include trail distance and elevation gain, highlight 25 of the best hikes, from short interpretive walks to strenuous hikes up to alpine meadows. Four backcountry trips are also described, along with information on lodging facilities.

Also on the back are two 1:25,000-scale inset maps of Lake Louise and of Lake O'Hara, detailing the best hiking in these popular areas.

Lake O'Hara - Trail Map and Guide

On the front of this map-guide is an ultra-detailed 1:20,000-scale map covering the entire Lake O'Hara trail network, one of the most scenic hiking destinations in the entire Canadian Rockies.

On the back of the map are descriptions of all the trails shown on the map, including Lake O'Hara Circuit, Lake Oesa, Lake McArthur, Opabin Plateau and the entire Alpine Circuit. Trail descriptions are accompanied with color photos.

Please note that, if you are planning to purchase the Lake Louise and Yoho trail map (see two maps up), you will probably not need to purchase this map as well.

Canadian Rockies - Explorer's Map and Guide

This is our most popular map and the one most recommended as an overview for anyone planning a trip to the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks - Banff, Jasper, Yoho and Kootenay. It also includes Mount Revelstoke and Glacier national parks, the Bugaboos and the Purcell Mountains further west.

29 of the best points of interest in the Rocky Mountain Parks are numbered and described. Mountain lodges, campgrounds, hostels, hot springs, golf courses, ski areas, picnic sites, visitor centres and highway viewpoints are labelled.

The mountains are also labelled with their name and elevation, if available, and glaciers are easy to pick out because they are shown in a different color.

On the back, you will find a map of Western Canada showing all the major highways, as well as maps showing the major arteries in the cities of Edmonton and Calgary. There are also townsite maps of Banff, Jasper and Lake Louise. Points of interest are numbered and described on the Edmonton, Calgary, Banff, Jasper and Lake Louise townsite maps. There is also a guide to campgrounds in Banff, Jasper, Yoho and Kootenay National Parks.

Pretty much everything that visitors to Canadian Rockies need to know - all on one map.
