A nice little drive with some great areas to pull over and enjoy the view-be sure to stop at the hoodoos viewpoint. If you want to hike up tunnel mountain, go early in the summer to get a parking spot!

We went down to look at the Hoodoos and followed the road as far as it went. Was a nice drive with trees on both sides and a couple of spots to stop and take pictures. I'd recommend it.

Lovely, scenic, well-maintained road to take in all the beautiful nature surrounding Banff. We saw mountain goats and deer.

We were a bit disappointed with this drive. It was mostly wooded along the way and we didn't see any wildlife. The road is gravel and there was a lot of dust on the old rental car. If you want another view of Banff, give it a try.

This shortish drive from Surprise Corner to the Tunnell Mountain Road will take you to a couple of vantage places and walk accesses.

Pretty enough to make the time to explore
