The Sawback Trail is Banff’s classic Front Range route.
Starting at Johnston Canyon, we travel north over the course
of five days and finish in Lake Louise.
Highlights include a
tremendous diversity of terrain: mountain carved canyons, forested valleys, lakes and marshes, glaciers, high alpine
country and the opportunity to see iconic Rocky Mountain
wildlife like the elk, black bear and grizzly bear.
This is a tent based trip. Tents are provided (3-men tent per two people) or you can bring your own.
You will need to be an intermediate hiker with a good fitness level,
capable of walking in the hills several days in a row. You will be
carrying all your equipment including the tent, sleeping bag and some
food (up to 50lbs).
