“No tunnel...go figure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

Take the drive and read why it is called Tunnel Mtn without a tunnel. The views of the mountains and the Banff Springs Hotel are great. I used my 250mm lens and got a nice picture of the hotel on the corner. Also, the hoodoos are quite different. It is an easy drive and ends up in Banff village.

“Excellent drive and great views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

We went for a drive and saw some amazing views that we would not have seen without the drive. It provided some great photo opportunities and picnic sites.

“Great drive and good stop off to climb the mountain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

We did this with our 7 and 5 year old. It is a long winding trail but not too hard and they were so impressed when they got to he top. Impressive views from all sides.

“Blank bear sighting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

On a whistle stop tour, sometimes you just have to drive through and find pretty photo opportunities, and this was one of them. Having seen the Hoodoos, we also saw the ground squirrels, elk calf and bear cub. Awesome!
