Gorgeous views and wild flowers. Lots of walks and trekking. Definitely worth a visit!!! The staff who watch over the park are also very helpful and informative.

Beautiful drive up the mountain with amazing views of the city and river at every bend, what else could you ask for? But the meadows full of wildflowers in full bloom leave you wanting to stay "in the sky"!

Even in mid July we could only drive as far as the first carpark as there was still 3m of snow higher up the mountain. We stopped at various viewpoints along the way and got beautiful panoramic views to the mountains and Revelstoke below. We walked around to Balsam Lake which is pretty with the trees reflected off the water.... More

I was out doing the Banff, Lake Louise, Jasper and Hyder Alaska road trip. I also covered Yoho to Revelstoke. I was doing this over 2 weeks plus from Spokane, Wa. in a rental car. The fee is included as part of the Natl Park daily fee that I had already paid. Otherwise I think it is about $10 a... More

At first I was a bit scared to drive up there. The lady in the visitor center said it is a really narrow road, then they warn you with "road with sharp turns, last option to turn around" kind of signs. It wasn't that bad after all. We enjoyed the drive up. Nice little hikes on top and breathtaking views... More

This is a 25 kilometer drive from the city of Revelstoke, but well worth it. It usually only open all the way from Mid July as there is still snow on the road. Once the snow is gone and you can drive up to the parking lot, you can take a shuttle the last kilometer, or hike up to the... More

We travelled all through Jasper, Banff, Yoho and Revelstoke, and I have to say this was at the top of the list of things we saw and did! Take a lunch and allow lots of time because it's well worth it. The stops along the road were breathtaking. Be sure to take the shuttle to the top!

Need to take your time driving otherwise you could harm some rare lizards or other animals, as the road is narrow and has many hairpin turns. Varying eco systems as you ascend the 1400m with great views of the valley. Beautiful views and a resident artist at the Sub-Alpine Summit.

This was a wonderful drive on bends, turns, and switchbacks for about an hour - one of the longest roads I've ever been on. We got to the top, parked the car, and caught a shuttle to the summit. The views were magnificent. The walk down was faster than waiting for the return shuttle. Worth the stop.
