List of Peaks by Highway

This page enables users to select the peaks that can be seen from a particular highway. In order to be included, the peak must be visible as one drives through the mountains on the highway or fairly close to the peak from the highway in the foothills. Peaks seen from the east at a great distance are not included.

Mountains seen from minor roads adjacent to the main highway are included as well. For example, if Highway #1 is selected,  peaks seen from Highway #1A, the Bow Valley Parkway, and the Lake Louise, Moraine Lake, Yoho Valley, and Emerald Lake access roads are included as well.

This feature is under development and there will certainly have been some oversights. Please email if you find errors or have any suggestions.
