RE: Suggested route
The beginning of October can be a beautiful time to visit Banff. There may be a little snow, but not much to worry about at that time. Daytime temps will probably be 15 - 9C. However, not to rule out the chance of a freak snow storm, be flexible about your plans. It will take you approx 3 hours to drive from Banff to Jasper, so fit this into your plans.
There is so much to see in both parks, I highly recommend that you just do one, and leave the other park to another time. That way, you're not rushed and it will give you flexibility with the weather.
