You'll find the "must sees" of the Canadian Rockies (including Banff) listed in this TripAdvisor Traveller Article:

Traveller Articles are written by TA members just like you and me in response to the most popular questions on the forums.

The list includes some of the most popular hikes in Banff.

This page on pleasant hikes right around town should be useful as well:

It is part of an informative group of backgrounders about Banff -- find them by clicking on Travel Guide (in green on the left column of your screen).

We really enjoyed walking from Wolf St (downtown) along the walkway and across the bridge along the Bow River to the Bow Falls. For how busy it was downtown Banff, this was peaceful and beautiful. And amazing because we did hikes in LL which were very busy. This walk is quiet, serene and lovely. At least it was the day we were there. You also walk right by the musuems, which would be great. We also walked up the staircase to BSHotel . Lovely.

You can also download some of the favourite 'Classic Hikes' for Banff and Lake Louise to get some more ideas from the tourism bureau's website. banfflakelouise.com/Things-To-Do/Summer-Adve…

Be sure to get a copy of the official trail map from the information centre or the Parks Canada website before you head out as well. pc.gc.ca/eng/pn-np/ab/banff/activ/activ1.aspx
