“Wildlife!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

We take this drive every day around sundown and watch for the Elk, deer, and other wildlife. Saw a huge bull elk this time! Beautiful drive to Banff with generally lots of wildlife!

“Scenic drive over looking Banff area”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

The Fall color of the leaves on this drives was spectacular in late September. Hiking trails were numerous, and RV campground was noticed on top of the knoll, just off the road.

“Interesting views”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

It was not full season yet there were a lot of tourists and it was difficult to find parking at the most popular spots.

“Good but not amazing”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Everything we did in Banff was enjoyable, including this drive. I wouldn't say it was "amazing" just due to the fact that Tunnel mountain itself is pretty small, relatively speaking. But it's a chance to see somnething new and maybe some wildlife.
If you want to camp, or park your RV, this is place to do it.
Anyway, so spend 1/2 hour and do the drive as part of a few more exciting things during your trip, just for some variety....
