A short stop for a great photo of the Fairmont Springs Hotel and easy to find. Take the stairs for the best photo.

Nice spot to get good pictures of the Fairmount Hotel from a distance which is just a short ride from the end of town.

Yes you have to go here, yes you have to take some photos but other than that it really is just a short stop for everyone visiting Banff.

Well worth the short drive. Minimal parking. Great photo op. just be careful if you are taking pics by side of road as the is no safety rail. Go up the stairs to viewing area for some informational signs.

Beautiful place to park and take pictures of the Fairmont Hotel as well as take the trail to the river Bow Falls. Do it during sunset so you can get a really nice shot
