the whole area around tunnel mountain is just so spectacular and awe inspiring. we return here year after year and always find new views and walks. the Hoodoos are a must see, as are the numerous elk that frequent the area.
only downside is dont visit on a holiday long weekend is you can avoid it!

Take this drive for a view of wildlife in the raw and a not crowded overlook of the valley below Banff

THis is a great way to see Banff and its surroundings on a peaceful, quiet drive. Start and finish in downtown Banff and the loop is about 13.5km and takes about 10 minutes. You can stop along the way. As you get higher some views are spectacular. I ride this on my bike every year and also it is a 6-10 loop road race during the Banff Bike Fest and it is one of the most beautiful races I have done. We reach speeds up to 90km/hr coming down the hill and it is a grind climbing up. There are many hikes also along the way. Tons of wild life. 3 deer crossed the road out in front of me yesterday while I was on my bike.

One side of the loop offers amazing views of the Bow River Valley and the Banff Springs Hotel. We were there in June, when it is light until about 10pm. We took the drive after dinner and loved the surprising views.
