“Tunnel Mountain Drive in Banff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

We drove our rental car on Tunnel Mountain Drive, and although there is no tunnel, the scenery is excellent and includes the HooDoos, and great mountain views especially in the late afternoon. The drive from Banff and back (the road is a large horse shoe) takes about 30minutes with a stop or two for photos.

“Forest, green and lovely”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

We drove through this tunnel mountain and enjoyed the magnificence of the trees, winding roads and places to camp and park for the night. Some awesome viewpoints too.

“Great view from HooDoos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

We did the hike from Surprise corner to the HooDoos...was a bit of a challenge for us "flatlanders" from Louisiana...but were rewarded with a georgeous view of the valley at the end. Took the car back later to do the geocache at the HooDoos.

“Beautiful scenic views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Take the time to do this drive. It is just lovely. Versy little traffic, lots of changes of trees and scenery. A good place to see wild animlas if at dusk or dawn.
