Amazing views! REALLY good for taking nice pictures of the Rockies, Banff, and depending on your zoom, some lakes around. I takes about 8min to get on top. There is a nice "walking path" built on the top of the mountain, where you can walk for about 2km and see the landscape from slightly different angles. There are places to seat and admire the view along the way; so, don't worry about the distance! Take your time! :)
I was there during the winter, so be prepared for windy (chilly!) conditions! Go with an extra jacket, gloves, toque. There is a tourist centre on Banff's main street, where you can purchase the ticket in advance and also check the current conditions/view from the top of the mountain (for me it was really helpful, as the day was a little cloudy).
