I've never really driven Tunnel Mountain only skiied the road with cross-country skis. It is great during the winter for skiing.
We didn't drive, but instead chose to trek to the top of tunnel mountain which is Banffs most popular hike. It takes about 1.5 hours to trek up, but the views on the way up as well as the views from the top are great! Its a must do if you are in Banff.
Do this drive if in Banff - we did it in winter and found wildlife - Elk - plus views up and down valley are spectacular and a short walk along the trail to look down on the hoodoos is well worth the view.
Tunnel Mountain drive gives a unique view of Banff but if you have time the main attraction is hiking Tunnel Mountain. It provides fantastic 360 degree veiw of the Bow Valley and is a very popular hike since it only takes about an hour one way. Great place just to relax!!
Whenever I bring new people to Banff that were visiting me I would ALWAYS take them up Tunnel Mountain! It's so beautiful and picturesque! Great views of the Banff Springs Hotel...so amazing!
Easy to Navigate and somewhat scenic as you get good view of one of the mountains at sunrise. Also required if you want to get to the campground!
