You guys are the hiking experts on this board, so consider this scenario: A friend of yours has one day to hike in the Lake Louise/Yoho/Banff area. He might be called a good hiker, but certainly no expert. The friend may never return to the area. What trail or hike would you recommend? Would you advise 2 1/2-day hikes encompassing 2 areas...or 1 full-day hike? One qualifier, Lake O'Hara is not an option.
Anyone feel free to chime in. Thanks.
