Banff National Park alone is home to 1600km (1000mi) of maintained trails! Of course, not all were options for us in winter, which helped us narrow things down.
We chose Johnston Canyon and the Ink Pots for one of our hiking days for a number of reasons. It's easily accessible, short enough that we didn't have to get up at dawn, didn't require special equipment beyond Yaktrax, and would show us some spectacular scenery.
