An alternate way to get to the middle of town, this route has spectacular views of the Bow Valley, a chance to get out and see the valley from a remarkable viewpoint, and possibly your best chance to see elk up close and personal (Be Careful!)

Stopped about halfway along this and trekked up to the top (about 40 mins?) of Tunnel Mountain. Not too steep and great views (360 degr.) from the top.

You get a great view and can visit the hoodoo structures on this trip. Make it as short or long as you like. Picnic sites, trails and camping along the way. Awesome views.

This was a very nice drive to a vista overlooking the Bow River Valley. The Bow River formed a horseshoe with very scenic Voodoos rock formations . Very easy access and good photo ops.

The views are decent and offers a nice getaway from the busy town streets. Only takes around 10 minutes to get around but the area is nice and appears to be well kept too.

After seeing the room We immediately asked for Our money back as the "Jacuzzi" was so small it could barely fit 1 let alone 2 people and the bed was extremely cheap and uncomfortable way below what should be an acceptable standard for a hotel bed. Nice front desk staff.

For me, Vermillion Lakes and this drive are the must see in the area of Banff. Simply beautiful. Love it!
