We are trying to plan a trip to the Banff area in late July. We mostly do hiking, but we have children ages 6-23 so not true "backwoods" hiking, but something more than the touristy walkways. There will be 11 of us total.
We have heard that the Lake Louise area is good for scenic hiking. If this is true, where are good places for us to stay? The only places that we have found that are big enough for us are in Canmore or Golden. Is somewhere else that we should be looking? Any tips/info would be greatly appreciated.
