The Best of Canmore map covers the mountain town of Canmore, gateway to the Canadian Rockies for visitors travelling west from Calgary. The 1:35,000 scale allows coverage from the eastern edge of Banff National Park to Gap Lake in the west. It provides detail of Canmore Nordic Centre Trails, hiking and climbing routes in the vicinity of the Three Sisters, and the roads and trails east of town.

On the back of the map are descriptions of 11 of the best walks, day hikes and mountain biking trails in the Canmore area. The highlights of each trail are noted, as well as distance, elevation gain and directions to the trailhead. Popular trails described include Quarry Lake, Grassi Lakes, Ha Ling Peak, Policemanís Creek, Cougar Creek, Grotto Canyon, Mt. Lady Macdonald and Wind Ridge.

An inset map on the back increases coverage of downtown Canmore, with town services, restaurants, and attractions highlighted by numbers that link to more detailed descriptions.
