“Upper section closed seasonally”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

We we're disappointed that the upper part of the road was closed due to snow, particularly at this late date, but the hoodoo stop is worth the drive and short hike with a great Bow Valley view.

“Great Drive Around Banff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

This drive will get you up-close and personal with the mountains around the town of Banff. The section around the Banff Arts centre is steep, so you'll want to make sure you put your vehicle into use the right gear to prevent your from smoking out your brakes.

Watch for scenic pull-outs along the drive (there are several), and above all, enjoy!

“Great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

A must drive for awesome scenery! Short drive with winding roads, plenty of places to stop off for pictures or to just get out and hike the trails.

Just 20 minutes walk from the town, amazing views. Great area for skiers with lots of motels to stay at.
