i
N the most picturesque parts of the Canadian Rockies, the Government
of Canada has created national parks covering an area of nearly 6.000
square miles. Within these limits are the beautiful valley of the Bow,
the famed Lakes in the Clouds, and beyond the Great Divide, the incomparable Yoho Valley and the great stretch of country lying to the west and
south of that delightful spot. Of this marvellous region Mr. Whymper,
one of the foremost of mountaineers and explorers, and the conqueror of
the Matterhorn, says : " The vast ranges
are appalling in their immensity and gran- —x
Entrance to the Cave, Banff ^^ £or here are fifty Qr sixty Switzer_
lands rolled into one."    In these parks the Canadian Pacific Railway  M
Company has erected excellent hotels, which are models of luxury and ;%:
comfort, at Banff, Lake Louise, one of the Lakes in the Clouds, Field, at II HBP
the base of Mount Stephen, and]Kmerald Lake on the way to the Yoho
Valley.   In the adjoining mountain range, at the foot of the Great Glacier
of the Selkirks, the Company operates another hotel—the Glacier House.
These unrivalled resorts are reached only by the Canadian Pacific Ry.
and its direct connection, the Soo-Pacific from St. Paul and Minneapolis. Th   Basin Banff
■ BANFF THE BEAUTIFUL
E
^ANFF is delightfully situated in the Bow Valley on the Eastern slope
of the Canadian Rockies.    At the meeting of the waters of the
rapid-running Bow and Spray rivers,the Canadian Pacific Railway
Company has erected a large and excellently appointed hotel, which,
perched  on  a  promontory overlooking  the valley that  carries  the
mingled waters of the two rivers through the great natural park, commands uninterrupted and glorious views of the peaks and stretches of
the Rockies in all  directions,  and its
advantageous situation and magnificent
Bow River Falls, Banff environments make it the favorite ren
dezvous during the summer months of tourists from all parts of the globe.
Interesting Places near Banff.
The Cave and Basin.—Natural Sulphur Springs, about 1% miles from
Banff Springs Hotel, at which the Government has erected comfortable bathing houses. The Cave, to which, like the Basin, the public is
admitted free, is entered by a tunnel from lower side of the mountain.
Charge for baths, 25 cents.
See inside front cover for carriage tariff.
2
lyake Minnewanka, Banff Spray River Valley, Banff
Bow Falls.—In valley beneath hotel ; rapids 80 feet wide at confluence of Spray and Bow Rivers.
Hot Springs.—On Sulphur Mountain, 800 feet above Banff hotel,
from which the hotel baths are supplied ; distance by carriage way,
two miles. At this point the Dominion Government has recently
erected a most complete bath house, including hot-tub baths, steam
rooms, hot and cold shower, sweat rooms, and large swimming pool.
Hot sulphur water direct from the springs is supplied at a natural
temperature up to 1200. Charge for baths the whole course, 25 cents.
Lake Minnewanka.—Distance, nine miles—drive skirting Cascade
Mountain, and following Devil's Head River until the precipitous sides of Devil's Head Canon are
crossed by a rustic bridge. The lake is 16 miles long, with a width of from one to two miles. On it
is placed a launch, which can be chartered by visitors at the rate of $1.00 per head for parties of five
and over. The sail usually occupies three hours. Fishing tackle, boats, etc., may be procured, this
being a favorite resort for anglers. A cluster of Hoodoos (natural concrete pillars) and the Devil's
Gap, on the way to Ghost River, are among the points of interest in the locality.
The Loop.—A beautiful drive around the Bow Valley in full view of Bow Falls—distance about
seven miles—skirting the base of Mount Rundle, to the banks of the Bow River.
The Spray Ride.—Up the Spray Valley past the old lumber camps and through the virgin forest to
the Spray Canon at the foot of Goat Mountain.
See inside front cover for carriage tariff.
3 The Sun Dance Canon.—A remarkable cleft in the mountain-
distance about three miles—a pleasant drive through picturesque
surroundings following the Cave and Basin Road to the entrance of
the Canon.
Tunnel Mountain.—The drive on which is the finest in the park-
distance seven miles.    A spiral drive known as the Corkscrew, leads
along the side of the mountain at an altitude of over 5,000 feet, the
return being made down the further side on a steep grade, passing the
barracks of the Mounted Police and through the village.    The summit
may be reached either on foot or horseback by good trails leading off
from the carriage drive.
Anthracite.—A very pleasant four-mile drive through an extensive
open, following the bend of Bow River past groups of curiously-formed
clay figures called Hoodoos, to the village of Anthracite.
Bow River.—The boating on which is very good for nine miles above
the bridge. A favorite canoe trip is to leave the Bow River one mile
up, turning to the right, up Echo Creek into Vermilion Lakes. There
is good fishing in the Bow and its tributaries, chiefly trout and grayling,
and a steam launch, canoes, etc., can be secured.
The Hoodoos
See inside front cover for carriage tariff.
Museum, Banff The National Park Museum.—A handsome building, erected by the Government, where a capital
collection of specimens of the flora, fauna, mineralogy, etc., of the mountain region may be seen.
This and other public buildings, as well as the streets of Banff, are lighted by electricity.
The Observatory.—The Government Observatory on the summit of Sulphur Mountain (8,000 feet)
is reached by a bridle path by way of Hot Springs, and is four miles from the C.P.R. hotel. There
are shelters en route, and from the summit magnificent views of the entire Bow Valley are to be had.
Buffalo Park.—A large corral of 2,000 acres, in which is a magnificent herd of fifty-six buffalo and
calves—the last remnant of the countless thousand bison which once roamed the adjacent plains.
Bands of elk, moose, antelope, deer and Angora goat, amongst which are some fine specimens, have
also been added to the Park, which is one mile east of the railway station, on the way to I,ake
Minnewanka. In small cages also will be found specimens of bear, coyote or prairie wolf, timber
wolves, foxes, and a grand pair of cougar or mountain lions. A collection of pheasants and grouse,
about twelve varieties, from different parts of the world, are very interesting to many.
Bankhead Coal Mines.—The acquisition and development of this property by the C.P.R. Company
marks a new era, not only in the history of the Rocky Mountain Park, but in the industrial life of
the district of Alberta, these being the only anthracite coal mines opened in Canada. The new
village of Bankhead, instead of being a detriment to the beauty of the park, on the contrary,
adds another to the many attractions of the neighborhood. Set almost directly on the road to Lake
Minnewanka, one of the most popular drives in the park, and a little more than halfway to the
See inside front cover for carriage tariff.
5 Lake, and nestling under the shade of the  Cascade Mountain, with its beautiful homes and its
industrial life, it has already become a popular stopping place for tourists.
Mountain Climbing.—Tunnel Mt., the island knob of rock lying between Cascade and Rundle on
the east side of the Bow Falls, is an easy walk for the most un-ambitious climber. Sulphur Mt.,
either by way of the Hot Springs or up the northern end, is not a difficult climb, and offers a
splendid view of the whole Bow Valley. Both Cascade and Rundle Mts. are steep enough to afford
arduous work, but both have been ascended frequently, comparatively easy routes having been found
by the Swiss Guides. Cascade has been traversed from the village to the summit and back from 9.00
a.m. to 4.00 p.m., Rundle from 1.00 p.m. to 5.30 p.m. On Cascade Mt. are some very fine fossil beds.
Behind Stony Squaw Mt., northwestward, is a sharp, lofty pinnacle. This is Mount Edith, affording a
splendid dolomite climb, equal to anything in the Tyrolese Alps, and
within easy reach of Banff. Twenty miles south of Banff, along the
Spray Valley, is the Matterhorn of the Rockies—Mt. Assiniboine, a sheer
pyramid of almost vertical rock towering high above vast glacial fields
and other lofty peaks, which has only been ascended once, in September, 1901, by Rev. James Outram. Height 11,860 feet. Its northern
slope presents three perpendicular faces, ice-glazed, overhanging and
precipitous, attaining an angle of 80 degrees where the three faces converge into the final spire. The west side is a beetling buttress, down
which avalanches pour all the year.    The east side is sheer precipice,
the SOUth walled masonry. See inside front cover for carriage tariff.
6
Buffalo at Banff Excursions.—During the tourist season excursion parties will be
arranged daily, thus enabling guests to visit the most interesting
points without any loss of time. A bulletin will be posted in the
hotel rotunda every evening, giving the points which will be visited
in the following day's trip, the hour of starting and the probable
hour of return, the means of conveyance, if any, and the exact cost.
Guests intending to accompany these parties are requested to register their names, so that the necessary lunches may be prepared, if
needed, and conveyance provided. Guides with trained ponies can be
Mount Rundle, Banff secured.
At Banff,—Guests also find amusement in lawn tennis, golf, billiards, bowling, etc., in addition to driving, wheeling, fishing, boating,
bathing and mountain climbing. In the hotel a dark room has been
furnished for the use of photographers who desire to finish their pictures before returning home. Alpenstocks for mountain climbers
can also be procured. Bicycles can also be hired. An orchestra from
Boston plays during the dinner hours and through the evening. The
hotel opens on May 7th, and closes about October ist, and the rates
are $3.50 per day and upwards according to room, with reduction upon
this rate for a stay of one week or longer.
See inside front cover for carriage tariff,
7
Swiss Guides, Canadian Rockies Hunting and Exploration.—Complete outfits, including guides, servants, provisions, saddle and pack
horses, tent, etc., are supplied from Banff for parties of Alpine explorers, goat and sheep hunters in
the Selkirks and caribou and elk hunters in the foothills of the northern Rockies at moderate rates,
not exceeding $4.00 each per day for parties of four or more.
Analysis of Banff  Hot Water Spring.—The  assistant analyst   of the  Dominion  Government,  Mr.
McGill, who recently made a full analysis of the Banff water supplies, reports :—" This water is very
free from organic impurities  and gives  no albuminoid  nitrogen.    .    .    .     Each gallon contains
dissolved sulphuretted hydrogen to the amount of 0.3 grain (equivalent to 0.8 cubic inch)."    The
dissolved solids are as follows:
Chlorine (in chlorides) - - - - 0.42 grains.
Sulphuric Acid (SO 3)  38.50       "
Silica (Si 02) 2.31

8 THE LAKES IN THE CLOUDS
LOUISE, MIRROR  AND  AGNES.
Up the Bow Valley.—The railway line up the Bow Valley skirts the Vermilion Lakes, and runs
along the base of Castle Mountain, a sheer precipice of 5,000 feet, extending eight miles. Views are
obtainable from the train of the Sawback and the Bow ranges and Temple and other mountain giants.
The Lakes in the Clouds.—Lakes Louise (alt. 5,645 feet), Mirror (alt. 6,550 feet) and Agnes (alt.
6,820 feet), iy2 miles distant from Laggan Station, and 34 miles west of Banff—the most winsome
spot in the Rockies.    On the shore of Lake Louise there is a handsome hotel,which has recently been enlarged considerably.    It is open     f I
from about June 15th to September 15th.    The charges are $3 50 per
day and upward.    Ponies can be hired at reasonable rates by those not    ■■
desiring the walk for the ascent to Lakes Mirror and Agnes, or the
trip to Saddleback Mountain (three miles) or to Paradise Valley itself,
or any other points of interest in the vicinity, which are reached by
good  trails.    Picturesque   chalets   are  erected at  Lake  Agnes   and
Saddleback Lookout.   Good guides arrange for and accompany excursions to the most  interesting  points.    Bar Harbor buckboards and
carriages meet all trains at Laggan.    Tourist tickets from Banff to
See outside back cover for carriage tariff.
9
Paradise Valley Laggan, Field and Glacier, at single fare for the round trip are issued on presentation of certificates
from the manager of the Canadian Pacific Hotel. Telephonic connection is established between the
hotel and Laggan station, by which telegraphic communication is had with Banff, and at the hotel is
a dark room for the use of photographers.
Valley ot the Ten Peaks.—Reached by a ten-mile carriage road from Laggan or Lake Louise. In
this new region for tourists, camping facilities are afforded on the shore of Moraine Lake, in the
midst of scenic surroundings of more than ordinary beauty and grandeur.
Bow Lakes.—A most picturesque region can be reached by a new trail from Laggan, eight miles,
or from Field via Emerald Lake and Wapta Glacier.
The Great Divide.—At the summit of the Rockies, 43 miles from Banff, where the waters separate
and flow into the Pacific Ocean and Hudson Bay. A rustic frame marking the Divide can be seen
from the passing train.
Swiss Guides are stationed at Lake Louise, Field and Glacier House, whose services can be exclusively secured by mountain climbers at reasonable rates.
See outside back cover for carriage tariff.
IO FIELD AND THE YOHO VALLEY
Mount Stephen House, Field, B.C.—Fifty-two miles west of Banff, where is located the Mount Stephen
House, one of the Canadian Pacific mountain chalet hotels, which has recently been practically
rebuilt. The hotel has accommodation for ioo guests, is elegantly appointed, and has suites of rooms
with baths, and all modern improvements. There is a billiard hall, and dark room for photographers.
The hotel is open throughout the year, and the rates are from $3.50 upwards per day, with special
arrangements for those remaining a week or longer. Swiss guides are stationed here : hand pack and
saddle ponies are procurable.
Mount Stephen.—The ascent of Mount Stephen (10,050 feet above
sea level) is a fine climb, affording magnificent views all the way,
culminating in a superb panorama from the summit, whence hundreds
of peaks, glaciers and snow fields are visible in every direction. An
experienced climber may make the round trip in eight hours from the
hotel. Most, however, will prefer to be less hurried, and under the
care of one of the sturdy Swiss guides stationed here, make a more
leisurely excursion.
Fossil Beds.—The lower portion of the route to the summit of Mt.
Stephen is by a good trail leading over glacial moraines and terminating
See outside back cover for carriage tariff.
II
Mount Stephen House,
Field, B.C. at an interesting geological formation known as the Fossil Bed. This is a rock slide, 300 or 400 feet in
vertical height, where every piece of shale or flat slab of rock contains fossil remains of trilobites-
From this point a very fine view is obtained of the surrounding country.
Aerial Silver Mines.—At an elevation of 2,500 feet above the railway track is a silver-lead mine,
which is reached by an excellent trail.
Natural Bridge.—Three miles down the Kicking Horse River is the Natural Bridge, reached by a
trail that leads to it from the Emerald Lake Road. Here a series of ledges of rock, standing nearly
vertical, has been undermined and cut through by the action of the water, which dashes and foams in
its narrow channel, whilst an overhanging mass of rock forms the bridge itself. One mile below
this point, though rarely visited, is an attractive canon. The return trip can be made by the new
railway track.
Pleasant Outings.—There are pleasant walks up the river bank above Field to where the Yoho Valley
joins the Kicking Horse Pass ; to Hector, eight miles ; and west of the hotel by which magnificent
views are obtainable.
Emerald Lake.—A delightful resort seven miles from Field, reached by a good carriage road down
the bank of the Kicking Horse River and thence around the base of Mount Burgess. A spacious
chalet is erected at the lake with excellent accommodation. It is elegantly furnished, and has spacious
bedrooms, pleasant sitting and smoking rooms, etc. The glimpses of the snowy peaks of the Emerald
Range, of Mount Field, Mount Burgess, the Ottertail Range and other great mountains, as seen across
this charming sheet of water and through the magnificent forests, are not to be excelled.    There is
See outside back cover for carriage tariff.
12 good fishing in Emerald Lake, and boats are procurable.    Tents, with
outfits of porters, cooks and ponies, can also be secured.
Yoho Valley.—The famed Yoho Valley is reached from Field by
Emerald Lake, from which there is a capital trail up the mountain
steeps to Yoho Lake. Half an hour's walk brings one to Look Out
Point, where a superb view of the Takakkaw Falls, dropping 1,200
feet, is obtained. A zig-zag trail leads to the floor of the valley and to
the foot of the cataract. Continuing up the
valley past the Laughing Falls and rem ark-
Takakkaw Falls ably deep canons, trail leads up to the great
Wapta Glacier and to another magnificent canon, near which are the
curious Twin Falls. The return to Field may be made by way of the
high trail which, leaving Yoho Lake, skirts the cliffs of Wapta Peak
and Mount Field and crosses the Burgess Pass to Kicking Horse. There
are resting places conveniently placed throughout the valley. A carriage
road is now under construction from Field to the Yoho Valley. Seven
miles of this road is now open for travel, which takes the tourist well
into the Yoho Valley. Work of construction is going on, and it is expected
that travellers will be able to enter the Valley from this direction by
September next.
See outside Dack cover for carriage tariff.
13
Illecillewaet Valley Ottertail.—A new road, extending westward from Field for a distance of nine miles, has been
completed to Ottertail Station, and from there a bridle trail has been made to Leanchoil, to connect
with the Ice River Valley trail, which extends for a distance of forty miles up one of the most beautiful valleys in the whole mountains and the best game grounds.
Lake O'Hara.—In the next valley westward from Lake Louise and across the Continental Divide is
Lake O'Hara, whose beauties are just becoming known. Whilst not so unique in its setting as Louise,
yet to many it is even more charming. It is surrounded by high mountains on every hand—Victoria,
Lefroy, Hungabee, Biddle, Schaffer, Odaray and the Wiwaxy Peaks, many of them snow-clad and
glacier-furrowed. A couple of miles away is McArthur's Lake, a sapphire gem, located above the tree
line, and with a huge glacier, fed on the precipitous heights of Mount Biddle, terminating in the
water, where it breaks off in huge icebergs. The fastnesses adjacent to these lakes are the home of
the wild goat, and bands of them are frequently seen. There is a good bridle trail from Hector Station
to Lake O'Hara, a distance of nine miles.
See outside back cover for carriage tariff. IN THE SELKIRKS
NEAR the summit of the Selkirks, the range of mountains parallelling the Rockies on the west,
are the Great Illecillewaet and Asulkan glaciers. No region offers a wider field for exploration
than that around these glaciers. In some of the not distant valleys not a human foot has ever
trod, and the goat and the bear are as yet undisturbed. Beyond the Hermit range, unnamed and
unknown lakes lie in the wildest solitude, and mountain peaks there are in plenty as yet unsealed.
Near the foot of the Great Glacier of the Illecillewaet is Glacier House, one of the Canadian Pacific's
chalet hotels, which has recently been enlarged, and affords the same comfort to the traveller as can
be found at the other hotels of this system. At Glacier House is an observation tower, in which
is a large telescope. There are also billiard hall, swings, and other sources of amusement,
and a photographer's dark room for the use of guests. The hotel is open throughout the year.
The rates are $3.50 per day and upwards, with special arrangements for those making prolonged
visits.
The Great Glacier is about three-quarters of an hour's walk from the hotel by a good trail, which
follows the course of the turbulent Illecillewaet River. En route can be seen the markings of the
glacier's forefoot in 1887, showing the recession since that date. There is no difficulty in reaching
the foot of the glacier, and it can be climbed easily, and satisfying views of the massive pinnacles,
yawning crevasses, and the vastness of the icefield obtained.    A guide, however, is necessary, and it
See outside back cover for carriage tariff.
15 Mount Abbott is a good day's climb. The.forests give an hour's shady climb, with Sir Donald and
Eagle showing occasionally among the trees. Little Lake Marion is a very small body of water
nestled in a pocket of the mountain side. To the right of Marion a five-minute walk brings you to
Observatory Point. Returning to the lake, a blazed trail leads to the summit of the mountain from
which point 37 moving glaciers may be seen. This is one of the easiest trails about Glacier for the
views obtained. A trail 200 feet above Lake Marion, leading to the left towards the base of Mts
Afton, Rampart, etc., is said by those who have made the trip over it, to be the finest bit of work on
any of the mountains in this valley.
Avalanche Crest is within easy reach of the hotel by an excellent trail. From the lower portions of
the Crest the best views are obtained, and from the higher rocky arete one can peer into some awful
chasms.    The time from the hotel to the base of the crest is three hours.
Rogers' Pass and Swiss Peaks.—It is an interesting walk to Rogers'
Pass, three miles along the railway track above the snowsheds.
From the Pass, the trail continues to the flank of the Swiss Peaks.
The time occupied in walking to the Pass is one hour, and the return
can be made by train, or vice-versa.
The Tote Road.—A specially easy walk, about Glacier, is the Old
Tote Road Trail. Winding around the base of Mount Cheops, it was
originally intended as the line of the road ; owing to the grade it
was abandoned for the present horse-shoe at the base of the Great
See outside back cover for carriage tariff.
18
Mount Cheops Glacier. From the Tote Road magnificent views of the Great and Asulkan
Glaciers may also be seen, Sir Donald, Eagle Peak and Avalanche. Still
remaining in its primitiveness, tbe wild life of the forest is more plentiful
along this road.
The Loops.—A pleasant walk down the railway track west from the hotel
brings one to the Loops. The railway line makes a number of startling turns
and twists, doubling back on itself to cross the Illecillewaet Valley. This is
one of the marvels of railway engineering in the mountains. Views of
Mounts Bonney, Ross Peak and Cougar Peak are had by descending the
Watchman's Trail on the near side of the first trestle. The Bonney Glacier
is one of the most brilliant in the range.
The Cave of Cheops, whose recesses have not yet been fully explored, are
reached by a good bridle trail from Glacier House, a distance of 7^ miles,
or by taking train to Ross Peak Tank. The distance by trail from these would be about 2% miles.
There will be accommodation for visitors, and a guide will be at the Cave after June ist. Pack ponies
to take visitors who prefer to ride may also be hired. The cave is two miles from the railway track,
at an elevation of about 2,000 feet.
Swiss Guides.—Swiss Guides are stationed at Glacier House, whose services can be engaged by
those wishing to indulge in the delights of mountaineering. Ponies, which are chiefly used here as
pack animals, are obtainable, the charge being |i.oo for short trip or $2.00 per day.
See outside back cover for carriage tariff.
19
Ross Peak Cariboo Bridge, Spuzzum, B.C. Albert Canon.—Twenty-two miles west of Glacier House, and reached by train. The upper portion
of the Canon, reached by a detour through the forest, with its dark, overhanging precipices, roaring
cataracts, and boiling torrents, immense well-holes and cavernous recesses worn in the solid rock,
makes an impressive sight.

Okanagan Iyake, B.C. SIDE TRIPS ON THE COLUMBIA RIVER
There are two delightful river trips to be made on the Columbia River—one from Golden, midway between Field and Glacier House—by the steamer " Ptarmigan," which runs to the upper waters,
leaving Golden every Friday.    The other is from Arrowhead, reached from Revelstoke (34 miles west
of Glacier) by branch railway, thence by Canadian Pacific steamers
down the Arrow Lakes and  Columbia  River.    By this  route, the
Kootenay gold and silver-lead districts are reached.    The scenery
along the Columbia River and the Arrow Lakes is magnificent, and
the steamers are well appointed, and the outings are very enjoyable.
The Okanagan Valley, reached from Sicamous, where there is
another of the company's mountain hotels, offers a tempting outing
for holiday-seekers and sportsmen. The C.P.R. steamer " Aberdeen "
makes the run of the entire length of Lake Okanagan, on which are
Kelowna, Penticton, Summerland and Peachland, the two latter
being pleasant resorts. Hotel Sicamous
