Harvey Pass is one of the best day hikes in all of Banff. Although it is challenging at around 15 miles round trip – with a total elevation change of nearly 3,300 feet – the views from Harvey Pass are worth the effort. We followed the couple sitting in the right hand side for most of the hike. They would pass us, we would pass them but eventually we wound up both stopping for a picnic in the same area. It was nice to sit, grab a bite to eat and then start the hike on the way down – which was much easier.
