Yoho National Park Travel Guide
The Yoho National Park Travel Guide describes a 131,300-hectare (324,450-acre) national park in British Columbia on the western slopes of the Canadian Rockies.
Yoho, a Cree word of amazement, is the smallest of the four contiguous Canadian Rockies national parks, but its wild and rugged landscape holds spectacular waterfalls, extensive ice fields, a lake to rival those in Banff, and one of the world’s most intriguing fossil beds. In addition, you’ll find some of the finest hiking in all of Canada on the park’s 300-kilometre (186-mile) trail system.
These pages describe Yoho’s natural wonders and human history, and we recommend where to go, what to do, and all the best hikes. We also recommend the best books and maps, what to expect with the weather, and where to stay and eat.
