We drove the parkway from Banff to Lake Louise and back and it is definitely more scenic than driving on Highway 1, but it actually isn't all that scenic a drive. There are a few overlooks, but not that many considering you are on a ~50 mile trip. We did see a few animals, but I'm not criticizing it because of that; wildlife viewing is always a roll of the dice. I'd still take the drive, but with reduced expectations.
