Kootenay National Park Map
Gem Trek’s Kootenay National Park map meets the needs of visitors looking to explore the least visited of the four contiguous national parks in the Canadian Rockies. Whether you are touring along the roads or heading into the Kootenay backcountry, you’ll find the waterproof and tear-resistant Kootenay National Park map to be an invaluable tool.
This map features detailed cartography, accurate hiking trails with distances, and details such as logging roads around the park’s boundary, campgrounds, picnic areas, and fire lookouts. On the back of the map are trail descriptions and photos of 10 short interpretive walks to viewpoints or points of interest, six recommended day hikes, four classic mountain bike rides and four longer, more strenuous day hikes and overnight trips. Also on the back is contact information for visitor centres and campgrounds.
This map covers Kootenay National Park in one sheet. This park lies on the west side of the Continental Divide in British Columbia. The map follows Highway 93 from Castle Junction in Banff National Park to Invermere in the Columbia Valley.
