Format: Paperback
As it is written by the authors of the well known Canadian Rockies Trail Guide, you know that the trail descriptions are going to be accurate and the information useful. Each of the 50 trail descriptions has a color map, color photos, and interesting tidbits, like where the trail name came from. For casual hikers, this is the book I would recommend for anyone heading to Banff.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a shorter, less detailed but more colorful version of the author's Canadian Rockies Trail Guide. It is likely adequate for most families visiting the Canadian Rockies and looking for hiking suggestions, but it is disappointing that the hikes are not rated in terms of difficulty and scenery. All hikes are not created equal. The Canadian Rockies covers a lot of territory, so you may have to drive a good ways to get to a trailhead, which leaves less time for hiking. But I also found "Don't Waste Your Time In The Canadian Rockies: The Opinionated Hiking Guide" too detailed and hard to use for vacationing hikers (as opposed to residents and more frequent visitors).

The book helped us find a few hikes that we wanted to do while at Lake Louise and Banff. It's also easy to carry with you.
