“Wonderful views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

This is a lovely short drive around the Banff area. As well as enjoying the wonderful views we were fortunate enough to see wildlife during our trip. Well worth including this drive in your schedule when visiting Banff.

“Don't miss the views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

From our accommodation it was easier to access by using this drive so we stopped a couple of times to look at the view. You can often see some wildlife in the valley so take binoculars.

“One of our favourite views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

After driving up quite a bit, we found a nice viewpoint which had views of all the major mountains in the Banff Area, the Hoodoos, Banff Spring hotel and the golf course. It was very secluded so we sat back on the bench and took in the peaceful scenery.

“Windy, scenic lookout”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

From the vantage of Tunnel Mountain, one can see from various clearings, sightings of Banff below. The power of the flooded river in June 2013, or the surrounding granite spires of the timeless Rockies, and the charm of this town surrounded by this beauty. Definitely take a drive on Tunnel Mountain. Lots of good accommodation there too.

“best thing about the drive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Seeing the Banff Fine Arts facility was the best part of the drive. It was good to learn about the HooDoos but otherwise, it was just another pretty drive... there are so very many in the area that are better.
