Gem Trek’s waterproof and tear-resistant Banff Up-Close map is primarily designed for visitors who are going to be in Banff for a short period of time and want to make the most of their stay. The main map is a detailed relief-shaded topographic map of the Banff area. All hiking and biking trails are labeled, and distances are marked. Like all Gem Trek maps, the Banff Up-Close map features detailed cartography and accurate hiking trails with distances, elevation gain, and directions to the trailhead noted. On the back of the map are descriptions of the sights, museums and scenic drives in Banff, with hours of operation and admission fees noted to make it easier to plan your day. We’ve also included a hand-picked list of the best seven walks and day hikes in the area. The highlights of each trail are noted, as well as distance, elevation gain and directions to the trailhead.
The Banff Up-Close map focuses its coverage on the town of Banff. It extends from the Sunshine Village turnoff in the west, to Lake Minnewanka in the north and east, to the Banff Gondola in the south. Popular hiking trails on the Banff Up-Close map include Sundance Canyon, Stewart Canyon, the Hoodoos, Tunnel Mountain, and Cory Pass. The map also has detailed information on the town’s museums and historic sites. An inset on the back increases coverage of downtown Banff, with museums and all major streets marked.
