Hoodoos

On Tunnel Mountain Drive you can see the Hoodoos here. Also, great view of the Bow river and great location to camp with spectacular view of the Rockies!

Loved the new red Andirondack chairs along the walk. The view was spectacular. Someone had placed some hearts and cupids along the way for Valentine's Day!

No tunnel through the mountain, only a name given when tunnel was planned long ago. Nothing special to see on this drive.

Went with a friend to check out the look out points. There is one spot with two red wooden lawn chairs looking to the mountains and it is so picturesque and beautiful that it makes going there worth it.

Great drive - definately do this if you are in Banff. Take your time keep a look out and you are bound to see wildlife eg elk, deer, etc Have got some of my best pics of wildlife along this road.

Half way in this loop, there is a view point and short hiking trail to view the bow valley and hoodoo. It is very scenic and only about 15 minute hiking on very good paved trail. You will be rewarded with beautiful view of the bow valley and the mountain view.

I never ever thought about how trains get over/around the mountains and this was an eye opener as well as a nice drive into BC.

Coniferous trees lined the snow laden road. I loved the elk that randomly walked across the road! Clean, with never a piece of garbage, the people really preserve the goodness of banff! Endless hiking, and walking through valleys and trails keep you busy the whole time!
