Favorite park location: Mount Temple, in Banff National Park

"One of my favorite Parks Canada spots is Mount Temple, in Banff National Park. The mountain—one of the tallest in BNP at 3,544m—is absolutely stunning and sits above Moraine Lake and the amazing Valley of the Ten Peaks, which is full of larches that turn golden in autumn. The mountain and its valleys provide some of the best trail running, mountain biking, climbing, and steep ski-mountaineering that I've found across Canada's parks."

Favorite park location: Pacific Rim National Park

"The rugged beauty of The Pacific Rim coast line blows me away every time I go surfing, and keeps me coming back year after year with its many surf breaks, fresh humid air, lush greenery, giant cedars, and beach sunsets."

Favorite park location: Banff National Park

"Growing up in Calgary with Banff National Park in my backyard plays a huge part in why outdoor recreation and spending time in the mountains with friends and family is the most important part of my life!"
