Worth the Drive
Sep 2020
Very scenic. Lovely area, there is a spot to stop to see the Hoodoos. The path to see the Hoodoos also allowed wheelchairs which I thought this was pretty good as you hardly see areas for wheelchairs. Great spot to take pictures.

Amazing views
Sep 2019
Great drive and worth a lovely walk to see the hoodoos. When you get to the area to view the hoodoos the view across the mountains and valley is spectacular. A must do.

Bugling elk!!
Sep 2019
We stayed at Tunnel Mountain Resort, so this was a short drive from our place, so we went twice and saw elk both times. The second morning, the bulls were bugling and pushing a large harem of cows and calves along the river. If you have binoculars, take them. We made a little video of the action with an iphone 10 and it came our pretty well.
The day before, we saw a black bear on this road, closer to Lake Minnewonka, in a meadow.

Great Drive and Park and Enjoy the sites
Sep 2019
Animals to be seen on this road so drive slowly. The hike to see the Hoo Doos and the Bow River is very easy and accessible too. Worth the drive and stop.

No Tunnel but an Easy Drive
Sep 2019
Tunnel Mountain apparently got its name from an intended railroad tunnel that was never built. There are some lodges and campgrounds along the road, views of the Bow River valley, a geologic formation called The Hoodoos, and, of course, some mountains with trails.

Stunning
Aug 2019
There are some absolutely stunning views from here including the hoodoos, which are quite unusual. Well worth a drive out of town.

The views and scenes open up with every second of driving. The splendor is amazing and you need to take time to see it all.

Great shot of the Fairmont
Aug 2019 • Friends
This is a very short drive. Views of the river are great and the back of the Fairmont Banff is lovely. Be aware though at the parking lot it is at a curve so watch for traffic as the may not see you.
