The views are great and you can spend a couple of hours really enjoying the outdoors and the scenery. The walk up to the observatory is very very nice.

Hoodos, Mule deer and Cariboiu, can be easily seen on this drive. Several mountain hikes abound in this great open area. A few hotels, and camping areas are also located in this area.

This drive starts and ends in Banff. It takes about 20-25 minutes, and it is beautiful scenery. There are several trail heads along the way, we saw lots of bikers and hikers. It was pretty.

An easy walk winding round this hill/mountain at the edge of Banff, easily accessible from town. Views from the top down onto town, Bow river, and the lakes spread over the valley floor. Well worth doing.

I walked from my hotel to the Tunnel Mountain summit, it took 2 1/2 hours, but was very pleasant and would thoroughly recommend. Make sure you take water. The views are excellent

This is a nice drive in a convenient location to Banff townsite! There seems to always be wildlife... elk, deer, goats, sheep and sometimes bears and coyotes!!

Well worth the time to do this drive, great views and never that busy. The Hoodoos are spectacular and worth the trip alone.

You are not going to find many other places in the world where the nuance and environment overwhelm you with sights, smells and the feeling of being "out there".

The Hoodoos are a must in Banff. Drive up Tunnel Mtn and you cannot miss them. The Bow river beneath is beautiful and remember to bring a telescope . You might see some animal footprints along the river bank.

Whether you drive or hike, Tunnel Mountain provides beautiful scenery. There 's deme thing for everyone. The drives gives a grand view and the hike (for those fit enough to make the trek) is rewarding.
