We would highly recommend this drive to Tunnel Mountain. Their are hiking paths as well as a shorter hike overlooking Bow River and the mountains. Walk as far as you can to see the Hoodoos. They are really different. It is a great relaxing walk...More

Take this drive if you wanna see some nice viewpoints along the way including surprise corner which has a nice view of Fairmont Banff Spring Hotel. We were also able to see a mummy and baby deer along the way.

Beautiful drive with several view spots including the hoodoos. Great, relaxing drive and several spots to either just take in the scenery or do some hiking.

This was a nice little hike to see the Hoodoos. The trail was easy to find. We even saw a deer drinking from the river.

It's an interesting spot with cool history about how they built train tracks across such steep slopes. It's definitely best if a train is on the track so you can see how impressive it is. It's a nice spot on a drive up to other...More

Couple of parking lots. On a sunny clear day, it's a beautiful little walk. Vantage point to see the Hoodoos, river and mountain range. Pretty spring flowers blossoming as well. Not a difficult walk along well marked paths, but can get steep in places, if...More

This is a nice little loop around the top of tunnel mountain. Sometimes we see wildlife but the weather was bad yesterday so we didn't see anything. You must stop at the Hoodoos and take in the awesome scenery, when the weather is nice :D
