The Cory Pass Trail and the Edith Pass Trail located in the Banff National Park combine for one of the more difficult and more visual rewarding hiking adventures when exploring the Rocky Mountains in Alberta Canada. There are views of mountain vistas, mountain ranges, valleys of wildflowers, glaciers, wildlife, alpine lakes and plenty of time to reflect. Spell binding!

Together, the Cory and Edith Pass Trails form an uphill 13 kilometre loop route exploring through mid mountain forests and alpine valleys, up and over mountain ridges and rocky cliffs and navigating switchbacks over rock slides and shale slopes of Banff National Park.

      Hi Tara, I may take you up on that (if it fits). I've been searching for mine everywhere the last few hours and haven't come across it yet

    Is the plan to scramble Mount Cory and then drop down into the Valley of the Gargoyles? Or just the two pass loop? If we are scrambling Cory the trailhead is 1.6 km up the road from the Cory Pass parking area. Just wondering what your plan is Doug. Either way it's a great hike.

      Hey Andy. We are still discussing the route. I'm thinking past the gargoyles would be cool.
