This section offers some of the most accessible, fantastic mountain scenery available in Western Canada, following the spine of the northern Rocky Mountains. The Canadian parks with their wide road shoulders provide excellent cycling conditions, but tourist traffic is heavy. Fascinating side trips abound for natural and geological sightseeing, which include aerial trams and hiking onto glaciers. The route is a series of climbs and descents over passes into various river valleys. A spur into Banff is shown.

The Great Parks North section 1 Map is going to be the second most important asset on my tour this summer (first being my bike). I have not yet used it, but having used Adventure Cycling's maps for a tour on the west coast this past summer, I know what great things to expect. These maps are comprehensive, detailed and informative; I never once ran into a discrepancy between what was on the map and what I found on the road. I am confident that this Great Parks map will be the same way.
