I am looking for data for Canadian National Parks. In particular, I am looking for hiking trails, camp sites, cabins, etc..I have gotten alot of data from the 1:50,000 Topo data. Parks Canada doesn't seem to have it on their site. Any ideas?

Geogratis has all sorts of data for Canada. There isn't a national parks file per se, but national park boundaries are included in some of the data layers they have, such as: Atlas of Canada 1,000,000 National Frameworks Data, Protected Areas, which also has provincial parks, community pastures, national wildlife areas, etc.. You might want to take a look at CanVec for more large scale data.

Good luck!

Unfortunately it seems that that data is not available to the general public even though our taxes do pay for it. Never the less you may want to consider to look for PDF's, & image maps, & do some georeference work. However if you have to digitize hiking trails it's useless to try to make profiles because it will not be accurate.

"There is much beauty that we fail to see through our own eyes teeming with life forms that give us that perception of our reality.  Leaves on the trees blowing gently in the wind, or scarily, the waves pounding through high surf, or lightly on a warm summer’s day; that opportunity to sit or swim in the water on a white beach.   That comfort to shout, “The universal conscious do you hear me?  I am alive, guide me dear logos towards the path of rightnesses.”  Earned what has been kept, no longer to be absorbed into a life filled with cold damn winds and  that stubborn fog clouding  my vision with nothing but darkness."
