great view of the banff springs hotel. perfect for taking pictures. decent amount of parking spots. be careful though in crossing the road from the parking lot to the viewing deck, watch out for oncoming vehicles.

This was our first really scenic viewpoint that we stopped at when first arriving in Banff. We were looking for our hotel, lost, and we stumbled upon it. A very good way to really start your visit to the Canadian Rockies from the Calgary airport.

Good spot for a quick stop. This seems to be the best spot in town to get a really pretty picture of the Fairmont in the mountains.

We walked from our hotel through town and along the road to surprise corner. Sadly, we were not so impressed with the falls after seeing other grander falls in Yoho and along the Icefields Parkway.

We drove our car following the very well marked and easy to follow Canada National Parks Map of the Banff Area, and were rewarded at Surprise Corner with a perfect photo op of the Grand Dame hotel from across the Bow River.
