BANFF SPRINGS HOTEL AND THE BOW VALLEY
CANADA'S NATIONAL PARKS
The line of the Canadian Pacific traverses or adjoins
six of the magnificent National Parks of Canada. These
are:
Rocky Mountains Park, 2,751 square miles in area, the
chief centres of which are Banff and Lake Louise.
Kootenay Park, extending for five miles on each side
of the Banff-Windermere automobile road.
Yoho Park, in which are situated Emerald Lake,
Wapta Lake, Lake O'Hara and the beautiful Yoho Valley.
Glacier Park, a remarkably fine climbing centre.
Mount Revelstoke Park.
Waterton Lakes Park, in southern Alberta, is also reached
from the Canadian Pacific.

j? THE Canadian Pacific Route is
the most picturesque across the
continent of North America. The
Dominion of Canada stretches from sea
to sea. Besides its great size, it is a
country of extraordinary variety;
mountains, prairies, forests, cities,
mighty lakes—these provide a journey
of such attractive quality that the
Canadian Pacific route is the u?n-
questioned favorite of the traveller who
wishes to see the best.
Y THE Canadian Pacific route, you cross the backbone ranges of
America. There awaits you, therefore, all the magnificent scenery that
is to be found nowhere else but in the high Rockies. The Canadian
Pacific Rockies comprise the most wonderful mountain region in the
world. Nearly seven hundred peaks over 6,000 feet in height—lovely mountain lakes, swift rivers, still primeval forests, glistening glaciers, extensive
national parks, hundreds of miles of roads and good trails—these are some
of the features.
The Canadian Pacific route through these mighty mountain ranges
is in itself a visualization of human triumph over nature.    From Calgary, to
which it has been steadily climbing since it left Lake Superior, the railway
rises another three-eighths of a mile to the Great Divide.    Thence, following
the narrow Kicking Horse Pass, it dips down to meet the majestic Columbia
River; then it re-ascends another quarter of a mile to the summit of the Selkirk Range before beginning its three-
quarter mile descent, through the rugged and impressive Canyons of the Thompson and Fraser Rivers, to the Pacific
Coast.
This great mountain region offers a remarkable welcome to those who tarry for a while. Banff, that famous
resort, with its glorious panorama of Bow and Spray Rivers, is the headquarters of Rocky Mountains Park. Lake
Louise, an enchanting lake with a no less enchanting hotel, is the gateway to a region of magnificent scenery. Field
brings you*to winsome Emerald Lake and the wonderful Yoho Valley, or Wapta Camp to Lake O'Hara.
Beautiful hotels are there to give you welcome and hospitality, and bungalow camps. Motoring along perfect roads, trail-
riding, fishing, hunting, climbing, exploring, swimming in hot sulphur pools, Alpine flower gathering, wonder-photo taking, golfing
at Banff on the most scenic course in the world—these are some of the "frill" doings in the Rockies. The biggest and most solid
pleasure is just living—living where the air has never been contaminated with soot, where you can go from summer to snow at any
time you want, where you need no alarm clock to get you up, no cordial to put you to sleep, no dinner bell to tell you when it's
time to eat.
Travelling through the Canadian Pacific Rockies during the summer is particularly delightful, because of the comparatively
cool summer temperature in the mountains north of the international boundary line.
Train  Service
Train Service through the Canadian Pacific Rockies
consists in summer of five transcontinental trains a
day—each way.
The Trans-Canada Limited between Montreal,
Toronto, Winnipeg and Vancouver. This is an exclusively all-sleeping-car train, carrying standard and
compartment vsleepers, observation car and dining car.
The Mountaineer between Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis, Calgary and Vancouver.
The Soo-Pacific Express between Chicago, St.
Paul, Minneapolis, Calgary and Vancouver.
The Imperial between Montreal, Winnipeg and
Vancouver.
The Toronto-Vancouver Express between Toronto,
Winnipeg and Vancouver.
The winter service consists of the Imperial, the Vancouver-
Toronto Express, and a through connection from the Imperial
to and from the Twin Cities and Chicago.
United States Connections
The traveller from the United States to the Canadian
Pacific Rockies will make excellent connections.
To Montreal and Toronto there are many services from
New York, Boston, Buffalo, Detroit and other points.
At Sault Ste. Marie—Soo Line connection to Twin Cities.
At Winnipeg—Soo Line service to Twin Cities and Chicago.
At Moose Jaw—Soo Line service to Twin Cities and Chicago. This# is the route of "The Mountaineer"—a daily
through train between Chicago and Vancouver.
At Calgary there is through Canadian Pacific service to
Spokane, Wash.
From Vancouver there is rail connection to Seattle and
beyond.
From Victoria and Seattle there are steamer connections
to California.
Alternative Routes
On the reverse side of this booklet you will find a
complete list of alternative routes and free optional
routes to and from the Pacific Coast. Two of these
can be specially mentioned:
The Great Lakes Trip. This is a very agreeable
summer variation. Canadian Pacific Great Lakes
Steamships—large modern vessels with every convenience—provide a magnificent two-day trip across Lake
Superior and Lake Huron, sailing from Port McNicoll,
Owen Sound, Port Arthur and Fort William. (See
current Time Table for sailings).
Southern British Columbia Route. This is an
alternative route of great beauty, through the picturesque
mining, agricultural and lake districts of the "Boundary" country. At the eastern end, it leaves the main
line at Medicine Hat and follows the Crow's Nest Pass;
at the western end it rejoins the main line at Hope.
This route is furthermore linked to the main line by
three cross-routes, through the Windermere Valley,
Arrow Lakes and Okanagan Lake respectively. (See
map).

they consist of sleeping bungalows, of log or other
wooden construction, with a central community building in which is an attractive dining and lounging room.
Moraine Lake Camp
Castle Mountain Camp
Vermilion River Camp
Radium Hot Springs Camp
Lake Windermere Camp
Wapta Camp
Lake O'Hara Camp
Yoho Valley Camp
Tea houses are to be found at several other points, with
sleeping accommodation. Across Across Canada by Canadian Pacific is a dramatic
Canada visualization of the remarkable variety and vastness
of the far-flung Dominion. From old-world cities of
the east, through peaceful agricultural scenery, along mighty
rushing rivers, through dense lumbering and mining regions—
across the wide prairies, over the magnificent Rockies, and down
to the beautiful Pacific Coast—this is the journey that awaits you.
Montreal Montreal, with a million population, is Canada's
largest city, situated on the mile-broad St. Lawrence
River. From Mount Royal, after which the city was named, it
appears spread out like an immense relief map. There are many
sights to visit—such as the magnificent Notre Dame Church,
Notre Dame de Bonsecours, McGill University, Mount Royal,
the old historic Chateau de Ramezay, beautiful parks, charming
suburbs, the docks, and the French-Canadian section.
Ottawa The capital of the Dominion, picturesquely situated
on the Ottawa River, is the meeting place of the
House of Commons and the Senate, the headquarters of the
Government administrative departments, and the residence of
the Governor-General. Very inspiring jare the great Parliament
buildings. A beautiful park system anid excellent motor roads
make Ottawa a very attractive city.
Toronto Toronto is the capital and clhief city of the prosperous
Province of Ontario, and is growing rapidly in population, wealth and industry. Beautifully situated on the shore of
Lake Ontario, its inhabitants have an affectionate name for it in
"The Queen City." It is noted for its beautiful residential districts, its high buildings, its spacious parks, and its < excellent
boulevards, and not least of all for its ffamous fall "Fair."
Around Lake Soon after leaving Sudlbury, the railway enters
Superior the vast hinterland that fringes Lake Superior,
travelling for a considerable distance in full view
of that magnificent inland ocean. This picturesque region of
forests, lakes, rivers and ravines—as yet only very little developed
—is full of interest for the outdoorsmain, for it affords unrivalled
fishing, hunting and canoe trips.
The twin cities of Port Arthur and Port William, at the head
of navigation on Lake Superior, are gireat grain-handling ports,
where the enormous wheat crop of Western Canada every year
finds an eastbound outlet: to which the :many giant elevators bear
vivid testimony.
Or you can take the Great Lakes Steamship Trip instead (see
"Alternative Routes").
West from the Twin Cities the saime characteristic country
continues for some three hundred miles, passing amongst other
places Kenora, well-known summer rescort on Lake of the Woods.
Nearing Winnipeg, the forest thins and widens out, and soon is
succeeded by the beginnings of the prairie.
Enquire about Bungalow Camps at French River, Nipigon and
Kenora.
Across the
Prairies
Winnipeg, at the confluence of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers, is the capital of Manitoba—a
beautiful and prosperous city that is the metropolis
of the prairie provinces. It is one of tlhe greatest primary wheat
markets of the world, and an important industrial centre.
For a day after leaving Winnipeg, the traveller is on the
prairies, continuously in sight of the <enormous grain fields and
stock farms which are the source of the great agricultural production of the West. Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta produce
the best milling wheat in the world.
The main line passes through severail cities, including Brandon,
Regina, Moose Jaw, Medicine Hat and Calgary, while the prairies
are traversed by several important branches. Regina is the
capital of the prosperous Province of Saskatchewan, and has a
fine hotel in the Hotel Saskatchewan.
Calgary, chief city of the southern part of Alberta, is a sunny
and enterprising community where mamy people stay over for the
famous "Stampede." The Canadian Pacific, which for a great
many years has been engaged in colonization and settlement work
on the prairies, has developed a large irrigation system east of
Calgary, which will be seen from the tirain.
The Rockies     Leaving Calgary, the ttrain enters the Rockies by
the ancient, glacier-gr<ooved Bow Valley, fringed
with dark evergreen trees. First climbing the grassy foothills,
with prosperous ranches and farms on either side, it comes to
narrow passes, eroded in the great gray^ bulk of the first ranges,
as one gets a full view—far more satisfying than the distant
glimpses from Calgary—of the far-flung line of peaks. There,
hung among the clouds and quivering in the warm summer air,
sharp as a knife blade, they are a dramatic sight never to be forgotten!
The Canadian Pacific Rockies, interposing their giant barrier
between the prairies and the Pacific Coast, stretch for nearly six
hundred miles. They are made up of six principal ranges, of
remarkably different geological age aind configuration of outline.
Many of the principal mountains seem from the train, or at the
most popular mountain centres, average a height of almost a mile
above the valleys at their base.
Banff Banff is a fitting front-door to the magnificence of the
mountains. Situated in a pocket of a wide circle of
pearly grey limestone peaks, embowered in pine forests and lawns,
with the glacial-green Bow River flowing through it, it is the
capital of Rocky Mountains Park, and has for many years been
one of the most popular mountain resorts of the entire continent,
due not only to its own environment but also to the beautiful and
famous Banff Springs Hotel.
Banff affords a remarkable variety of recreation—riding,
climbing, boating, golf, tennis, motoring and trail trips. Its
sulphur baths are world-famous; one of the four adjoins Banff
Springs Hotel. Within easy reach are many pleasant hikes or
easy mountain climbs. Within a short drive is the interesting
Buffalo Park. Good roads and trails radiate in all directions.
There are very attractive automobile trips. For those seeking
to get close to the heart of Nature there are a variety of fine pony
trips. Lake Minnewanka has good trout fishing, and a wonderful
river trip can be made up the Bow.
"Indian Days" and the Highland Gathering are colorful
spectacles that draw thousands to Banff each year. A very successful winter sports season has also been developed.
The new 18-hole golf course which has been created at Banff
by the Canadian Pacific is one of the most scenically beautiful
and remarkable courses of the world.
Motor Trips     The principal resorts of this part of the Rockies
are linked by a system of splendid motor roads,
built by the Canadian Government and providing some magnificent
trips. From Banff one can motor to Lake Louise, Moraine Lake,
the Kicking Horse Pass, the Yoho Valley, Emerald Lake, and (by
the new "Kicking Horse Trail") to Golden. Then there is the
famous Banff-Windermere Road, which at its southern end has a
connection to Golden, thus providing; a three days circle trip.
East From Montreal
To Quebec        From Montreal it is  a short ride by Canadian
Pacific Railway to Quebec, an old-time walled
city, which, with its Chateau Frontenac (a superb Canadian
Pacific Hotel), its French-speaking population, crooked streets,
and its enchanting atmosphere, is easily the most romantic place
in Canada. Quebec was the scene of the great battle of the
Heights of Abraham of 1759, by which Canada passed from French
to British rule, and it is full of reminders of the heroic past.
To the At-        From   Montreal   there   are   excellent   Canadian
lantic Coast      Pacific services to S;aint John, Halifax, Boston,
and other cities and summer resorts cf the Maritime Provinces and the New England coast. St .-Andrews-by-
the-Sea, N.B., is the leading fashionable seashore and golfing
resort of Canada, with the fine Canadiian Pacific Algonquin Hotel.
To Europe        Canadian Pacific Steamship Services provide a
fast and luxurious service from Canadian ports to
British and other European ports. These steamships comprise
the "Empress" steamships, the new "Duchess" steamships, and
several other "Cabin Class" services. Steamships sail several
times a week from Montreal or Quebec in summer, and from Saint
John, N.B., in winter.

Lake Louise      Lake Louise—probably the most perfect gem of
scenery in the known world—bears the liquid
music, the soft color notes of its name, almost into the reahn of
the visible. Nestling 600 feet above the railway on the far side
of a mountain palisade, amidst an amphitheatre of peaks, it is a
dramatic palette upon which the Great Artist has splashed his
most gorgeous hues. Deepest and most exquisitely colored is the
lake itself, sweeping from rosy dawn to sunset through green,
blue, amethyst and violet, undershot by gold; dazzling white is
the sun-glorified Victoria Glacier, at the farther end; sombre are
the enclosing pine-clad peaks that dip perpendicularly into the
lake; and magnificent are the stark# immensities of the snow-
crowned peaks that enclose the entire picture.
On the margin of this most perfect lake—in one of the wonderful Alpine flower gardens in which the Rockies abound, where
poppies, violets, columbines and anemones slope through terraced
lawns to the water's edge—the Canadian Pacific has placed its
great Chateau Lake Louise. Adjoining it is a 100-feet open-air
swimming pool.
From the Chateau good roads and trails lead to the principal
features of interest in the vicinity. A very easy ascent, either on
foot or on the back of a sure-footed mountain pony, is to Lakes
in the Clouds. The trail can be continued beyond this to the
Plain of the Six Glaciers. Another popular pony-ride is up Saddleback Mountain. For the Alpinist there are a variety of good
climbs, both easy and more arduous.
Moraine       Moraine Lake, an exquisitely colored mountain lake
Lake in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, is nine miles from the
Chateau by good motor road. The tremendous semicircle of the peaks that encircle the lake present a jagged profile
that makes a most majestic picture. On the shore of the lake is
Moraine Lake Bungalow Camp.
The Great
Divide
Six miles west of Lake Louise is the Great Divide,
the highest elevation of the Canadian Pacific and
the very backbone of the continent—dramatically
illustrated, in fact, by the parting of the waters under the little
arch, to flow either westward to the Pacific or eastward to the
Atlantic.
From the Great Divide to Field, a distance of 14 miles, the
railway descends nearly a quarter of a mile. Formerly this section, with a gradient of 4.5 per cent, was extremely difficult to
operate, but by the construction of two tunnels the length of the
line was increased sufficiently to permit of reducing this gradient
to 2.2 per cent. These are the "Spiral Tunnels," under Cathedral
Mountain and Mount Ogden. Through them the railway turns
almost two complete circles, passing under itself twice and emerging over 100 feet lower than when it entered.
The new 24-Hour Motor Detour through the Canadian Pacific
Rockies gives you a remarkable opportunity of seeing this region.
Comfortable busses bear you between Banff and Golden, making
connections at either end with westbound or eastbound trains.
Convenient schedules—no lost time.    See special folder.

Yoho Park        Immediately west of the Great Divide is Yoho
National Park—a region of charm and winsome
beauty, of giant mountains and primeval forests, of rushing rivers
and sapphire-like lakes. Providing a wide variety of recreation,
including some magnificent trail trips, it also offers good accommodation at several points. Chief of these points is Emerald
Lake—a beautiful sheet of water, of most exquisite coloring and
sublimity of surroundings, lying placidly under the protection of
Mount Wapta, Mount Burgess and Mount President. On its
wooded shore the Canadian Pacific operates the picturesque, cosy
Emerald Lake Chalet. Emerald Lake is seven miles from Field,
by motor road.
Another point is the celebrated Yoho Valley, one of the finest
of the entire Rockies. This may be reached by motor road from
either Field or Wapta Lake, or by horseback over the pass from
Emerald Lake. At the end of the ride are the Takakkaw Falls,
a silver thread of glacial origin dropping 1,200 feet; facing them is
Yoho Valley Bungalow Camp. The upper Yoho Valley can be
visited by trail, as far as Twin Falls Tea-House.
About two miles from the Great Divide, picturesquely situated
on the far side of a beautiful little mountain-hemmed lake, is
Wapta Bungalow Camp, the centre of a number of delightful
excursions amongst the magnificent scenery of the Kicking Horse
Canyon. Itis reached by train, or by motor from either Field
or Lake Louise.
Eight miles south of Wapta Camp, reached by trail through
an almost primeval forest, is Lake O'Hara—a mountain jewel of
a lake in an open Alpine meadow that was once the cup of an old
glacier, surrounded by gigantic peaks. A bungalow camp, reproducing in many characteristics the appearance and spaciousness
of a Swiss chalet, has been established here.
Emerald Lake Chalet and the bungalow camps in Yoho Park
are linked by good roads or trails.
The Selkirk      From Field the line descends into the valley of
Range the^ famous  Columbia  River,   and  then  climbs
again into the great and spectacular Selkirk Range,
with the five-mile Connaught Tunnel bringing it to Glacier. This
magnificent mountain area contains numerous glaciers and giant
peaks, many of which are easily visible from the track.
Following the Illecillewaet River, along the brink of deep
chasms, one next reaches Revelstoke, on the Columbia River.
The Canyons    From here to sea-level the route is through some
lesser ranges, continually descending, and following, most of the time, the gigantic canyons of the Thompson and
Fraser Rivers—second only in scenic grandeur to the Rockies
themselves. Sicamous, with a charming hotel, is on Shuswap
Lake. Kamloops is the beginning of the canyon country. The
railway follows the canyons at often a considerable height above
the river bankj^ the track, hewn from solid rock, not only crosses
from side to side in the gorge, but also tunnels through great
rock spans. Presently the river widens out, and we reach a
meadow-like country through which we roll to Vancouver.
Vancouver Vancouver, beautifully situated on Burrard Inlet,
and facing a magnificent mountain range, is the
largest city of British Columbia; with its imposing business
section, its busy docks, its fine shopping streets, and its flower-
garbed residential suburbs, it is one of the great metropolitan
centres of the Pacific Coast.
Vancouver is a favorite summer city, for its mild climate,
floral luxuriance and abundance of water make life there very
pleasant.^ There are many bathing beaches, parks, boulevards,
automobile roads, golf courses, and short and long steamer trips.
Stanley Park, a remarkable forest of almost primeval characteristics, is inside the city limits.
The Triangle    Canadian Pacific "Princess" steamers provide a
Route "triangle"   service   between  the  cities  of  Van
couver, Victoria and Seattle.    (See under Route
8 on back).   The two magnificent new vessels, the "Princess
Kathleen" and the "Princess Marguerite," are the fastest and best #
vessels on the Pacific coastwise trade.
Victoria Charmingly situated at the southern end of Vancouver Island, Victoiia—capital city of British
Columbia—is essentially a home city, with beautiful houses,
bungalows, gardens, lawns, boulevards and parks; and it has furthermore a distinct charm of its own that makes it different from
all other cities of North America, and that has made it a favorite
residential and vacation city for both summer and winter alike.
The Empress Hotel is a beautiful structure matching the
city, overlooking the Inner Harbor, and facing the Parliament
Buildings. Adjoining the Empress Hotel, an amusement casino,
the Crystal Garden, contains one of the world's largest glass-
enclosed salt-water swimming pools, with dance floors, picture
galleries, etc.
From Victoria many delightful excursions can be made by
train or automobile into the interior of Vancouver Island. The
immense Douglas fir forests make this trip very attractive. Fine
salmon and trout fishing can be enjoyed at many spots.
Seattle Splendidly located on Puget Sound, mountain-girt
and fringed with lakes, Seattle is one of the most
important cities of the Pacific Coast— a beautiful and progressive
community situated on the slopes of the hills that front the Sound.
Amongst the interesting sights of Seattle are the down-town
business section, with its sky-scraper buildings, Lake Washington,
the residential districts, and many beautiful parks, beaches and
summer resorts. A large number of enjoyable trips can be made
by train, steamer and automobile, such as to Bellingham, Everett,
Tacoma and Mount Rainier.
Rainier National Park is easily accessible from either Seattle
or Tacoma.
To Alaska From Vancouver or Victoria the palatial "Princess"
steamers of the Canadian Pacific provide a frequent
service to Alaska. This exceedingly popular side-trip can be
made, including return, in nine days. It is a thousand-mile one
through the beautiful "Inside Passage" and introduces you to
magnificent scenery of a character unknown elsewhere in North
America—long fjord-like channels, with glacier-clad mountains
dipping deeply into them, gaily painted totem poles, Indians,
gold mines, and always the purple glories of the Alaska sunset.
Leaving Vancouver, stops are made at Alert Bay, Prince
Rupert, Ketchikan, Wrangel 1, Juneau and Skagway.
From Skagway the White Pass and Yukon Railway takes one
still further into "The Land of the Midnight Sun"—over the
White Pass to Whitehorse, Yukon Territory. From here, steamers
provide a regular tourist service to Dawson. There is also a very
fine side-trip from Carcross to the far-famed Atlin Lake.
See our "Alaska" booklet for full details.
To California    All  round-trip  tickets  to  and from  the  Pacific
Coast through the Canadian Pacific Rockies can be
routed, at a comparatively small extra charge, one way via Seattle,
Portland and California points.   Ask our agencies for information.
Across the From Vancouver,   Canadian Pacific   "Empress"
Pacific steamships cross the Pacific to Japan, China and
Manila. The "Empress of Canada," "Empress of
Russia," and "Empress of Asia" are amongst the most beautiful
and best known vessels on the Pacific Ocean. The Canadian-
Australasian Line runs regularly from Vancouver to Honolulu,
Suva (Fiji), New Zealand and Australia.

Resorts in the Rockies"
Within the limits of this publication it is not possible to do
more than mention some of the highlights of the Canadian Pacific
Rockies. We issue, however, another fine booklet in colors,
"Resorts in the Rockies," which is devoted entirely to this territory and contains much more detailed information. Copies can
be obtained of any of our agencies.
