This is one of those "you should drive it just because it's charming" things. Although not an example of beautifully pristine nature, it gives you the feeling of the Rocky Mountains in its short distance.

Well, it is something to do. And the views are pretty enough. Not much for wildlife. We enjoyed the drive to Spray Lake and Peter Lougheed out of Canmore, Yoho, or Yellowhead Pass much more. Better scenery, better wildlife, less tourist.

Just up the hill from the town of Banff ... if you follow the road around there is a great viewpoint overlooking the Banff Springs Hotel and The Banff Centre is on Tunnel Mountain ... they have many artists, bands etc. performing here .... Check their website.

Have only rated this as average because it has so much to contend with locally that is better. It's a relatively short drive just on the outskirts of town with good views of the surrounding area. Well worth a look if you have a little time to spare at the end of the day.
