Kootenay National Park was established in 1920 as part of an agreement between the provincial and federal governments to build the Banff-Windermere Highway � the first motor road across the Canadian Rockies. A strip of land five miles (eight kilometres) wide on each side of the highway was set aside as a national park. The completion of the highway in 1922 expanded the new age of motor tourism in the Canadian Rockies and established a commercial link between the Windermere Valley and Calgary.
The 94 km Banff-Windermere Highway (93 South) takes you through the park along the Vermilion and Kootenay rivers and through the narrow gorge of Sinclair Canyon to the famous Radium Hot Springs. Many use the highway simply as a scenic route to reach the Windermere Valley, beyond the park's southern boundary. But those who take the time to stop along the way discover some of Kootenay's quiet, colourful secrets...
...such as the vibrant new forests growing up in the wake of the forest fires at Vermilion Pass and Mount Shanks, the blue glacial waters and white dolomite walls of Marble Canyon, the rust-coloured mineral pools and ochre beds of the Paint Pots, the shaggy white mountain goats (the park's wildlife symbol) on the crags and slopes of Mount Wardle, the panoramic overlook at Kootenay Valley Viewpoint, the little green gem of Olive Lake nestled in Sinclair Pass, and the iron rich cliffs of the Redwall Fault � an impressive park entrance for visitors from the south.
