"I met Brian Patton and Bart Robinson in the summer of 1970 when I was working as a mountain guide at Lake O'Hara and Brian and Bart showed up in the valley doing their initial research for what was to become the iconic "Trail Guide to the Canadian Rockies". The pair was walking every trail in the range, notebook in hand, pushing a measuring wheel and noting all the distances. This, I am sure, is the only time that this has ever been done and I feel comfortable in saying that every guidebook author since, has used Brian and Bart's trail distances. Their book is the original and, in my opinion, still the best." --Chic Scott

One criticism I have is that there is no easy way to determine whether the hike you are considering is easy, moderate, or strenous at a glance. Some of the trails covered may mention it but it is not consistently available, and you cannot find this info easily as you have to read the entire write up for it.
Once we knew where we wanted to hike, the book gave great descriptions of the trails, elevation gains, and distances. No complaints there. But I wouldn't recommend it as a trip planning resource by itself.
