Tunnel Mountain Trail, Banff

4.7
#1 of 31 in Trails in Banff National Park
Hike Tunnel Mountain Trail for a rewarding view of the Canadian Rockies. At a length of 2.3 km (1.4 mi), the sloping trail remains mostly gentle but requires a moderate fitness level for uphill trekking. Once at the top, you'll find a compelling 360-degree view of the surrounding mountains, river valleys, towns, and a golf course. Be sure to check the conditions of the trail before going and take shoes with good traction, as the rocks can get slippery.

  • Beautiful trail in a central location of Banff, where after a reasonable rise hit magnificent observation points of the city. Impeddível!

  • We only did the upper end and enjoyed the easy walk with beautiful views. Lots of mountain bikers as you continue up the trail so be aware and listen for them.  more »
  • Good route to take driving between Banff and Lake Minnewanka. Popular spot to stop with great views. We were able to see several Elk around the river below us.  more »
