Tunnel Mountain Trail, Banff

4.6
#1 of 30 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.

  • This is a great hike! One of the best things is that it is so close to Banff. Just head stright out towards the mountain and you'll find the trail.  more »
  • WE saw two moose and two deer on our way to view the Bow river and Hoodoos. Short drive and a walk for beautiful time with mother nature  more »
  • I have no clear read reviews talking a walk almost without sense, obviously did something else. It is a fairly complex way, above all because it is a nearly constant slope, even when the road is marked. Costs, be clear, carry water because the Sun entering heat faster still. At the top the view is excellent, highly recommended, even will get to see people climbing the mountain. At the same time I like it because pets can be. Highly recommended out of season, we did it in May and there was no snow, and there was virtually no mud.
