Rockies Trail Rides: 0050.0527


            Up, out and away from the cares and limitations of modern life; sharing the joys of long days in the saddle in flower-studded Alplands and stately passes with a goodly company of kindred spirits; happy evenings around the campfires and restful, health-giving nights in the wine-like atmosphere of the mountains; such is the life of the Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies, on their annual expeditions from Banff and Lake Louise, which have long since become famous items in the summer programs of the two great Canadian Pacific Railway hotels at these renowned holiday places.  Carefully planned rides, of varying durations to suit all comers; experienced guides, cooks and horse-wranglers; a pack train always ahead to welcome the riders at the evening meal, with the night’s camp all ready for occupation; horses that are as sure-footed as goats all contribute to making this form of holiday one of the most original and enjoyable on the American continent.  Canadian Pacific lines carry enthusiasts and new recruits from the four corners of the earth to Banff and Lake Louise each summer.
