Nestled beneath the peaks of Mt. Rundle and Mt. Cascade, Banff is considered among Alberta’s must-see destinations—but away from the spectacular scenery lies a ghostly past only the bravest visitors can uncover. On this spooky evening walking tour, follow your guide through Banff’s historic streets and hear spine-chilling tales from beyond the grave. Learn of the unsolved crimes and terrifying encounters that haunt Banff’s dim and distant past.

We parked at Surprise Corner. There is limited parking and we were lucky to get a spot. We took the Bow River Hoodoos trail to the Hoodoos viewpoint. It’s a lovely trail through the forest and along the river. There is a good uphill ascent at the end as you climb up from the river to the Hoodoos viewpoints on the ridge. Views are really nice. We returned via the Tunnel Loop Hoodoo trail. It parallels Tunnel Mountain Road to the Douglas Fir Resort. There we came out on the road and then took a left on Tunnel Mountain Drive and walked back on that road (it’s closed to traffic). This part was not really worthwhile - I would recommend returning by the Bow River Hoodoos trail. Total trip time was 2.75 hours including the time spent viewing the Hoodoos.

Beautiful scenery! The Bow River in sight the air was fresh and clean I loved it! The trail was great exercise and there were a lot of campers staying there. Great room and open space!

What the heck is a hoodoo is listed on the information sign by this beautiful landmark. hoodoos are very neat and you can even hike to see them upclose. We just took the path and saw the amazing Bow Valley for a short 10min walk. Worth the walk, and snap, snap pictures.

Parking was easy and then a trail leads down to the Hoodoos Viewpoint. There is a sign if you want to read all about it too. The Bow River snakes around and through the valley below. Once seen.
