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

This is a nice road, well maintained, but it's just another road in Banff. We were fortunate to stay on it so saw it frequently - but have a go! It's worth going around the mountain at least once and seeing the many hotels and...More

A great short drive out of Banff if you have an hour or two to spare. Some great views and short walks to see the hoodoos etc.

This is an easy drive in Banff offering many viewpoints. On a good weather day you get great views and an easy return to town

I loved this drive; it was short but full of amazing views along the way. You have to pull over, admire the beauty and plenty opportunity for photo shots. We didn't see any wildlife but it said that early morning is the best time.

This is a nice 20 minute or so drive that circles Tunnel Mountain and passes by trailer parks and viewpoints. Not much traffic on the drive. You can visit places like Hoodoos valley lookout, Surprise corner and Tunnel Mountain Trail start point.

nice views of the mountains and hoodoos. Although Drumheller was WAY BETTER for the hoodoos. Nice views of the river and mountains.

Very spectacular scenery and well worth visiting. Interesting and unusual trip. Lovely to see trains going through the tunnels.

The tunnel drive is very beautiful. The drive itself is very short but well worth the time to do. If has several lookout points for photos. Keep your eyes open for various wildlife. Best to take in the morning or early evening.

Or... you can just drive along it slowly. Most of the spots are well marked. The speed limit is fairly low, and most people in Banff are not in a hurry, so taking a slow drive won't aggravate too many. This is a quote... More
