It was so beautiful! Very much enjoyed the ride up Tunnel Mountain. We didn't see much wildlife which was disappointing but the scenery was worthwhile.

We really enjoyed driving up and down Tunnel Mountain as there were so many beautiful sights all around. The breathtaking views of the valley alone are well worth going on it. A must do while in the Banff area.

We loved this drive around Tunnel Mountain. There are a few viewpoints along this short drive that are well worth stopping for. The scenery is magnificent. We did this drive at about 7AM and saw deer on 3 separate occasions. It looks like early morning is your best time to spot wildlife.

We drove this thinking it was something more. There are places to stop, park and walk. We were going to our walk( up Tunnel Mountain) so we didn't make a special trip.
