Travel Alberta has a decent mileage calculator here:
If you would like your miles, not kilometers, you can either convert using an online tool like www.onlineconversion.com , or you can use Mapquest.com to find the directions, distance, and driving times.
Searching for the distance from Banff to Yoho probably won't give you proper results, since Yoho is a large national park. Instead, look for Banff, Alberta to Field, BC; Field is a hamlet in Yoho right next to the Trans-Canada Highway.
Jasper and Banff are both towns and the names of the national parks that those towns are in.
I like using Google Maps (http://maps.google.com). It's quite easy to get driving directions, times, and distances. Just type in something like 'Calgary to Banff' in the search box and it will give you the distance and route. You can also drag the route and start and endpoints around to get distances using alternate routes.
Jerm, do you know how to get Googlemaps to display miles, not kilometers?
Click on the 'show options' link below the destination box (on the left side). Then choose miles and click 'Get directions'.
*doh!* I was looking right at it earlier and missed it entirely :( Thanks, Jerm!
Thanks very much to you all. Sounds like good
information and I will check it out.
Try www.mapquest.com its a great tool for times and distances.
I used to use Mapquest all the time, but I'm learning that Googlemaps does everything Mapquest does - but better. I'd encourage you to give it a try.
