Great and easy little hike with stunning views. Recommend microspikes during this time of year.

Great hike for today, but it was really icy, so take cleats with you!

loved this trail easy for kids and great scenery and pics

nice and short hike for our first in Banff, great views along the way and nothing difficult to encounter on the way. cleats made a huge difference because the packed snow trail was a bit slippery without them.

Great little hike with fantastic views! Short & easy, and seems to be a popular trail as there were lots of people.

Beautiful views of Banff and a great little hike to get your heart pumping, very low time commitment required so you can plan multiple activities in a day and still get a good hike in!

The views are fantastic the entire hike. Initially you have changing perspectives of the town of Banff and then at the top you can see down both sides of the mountain into the valleys on either end. Yes, there are lots of tourists so don't expect this to be a place of solitude but it is great for what it is: a moderately sloped trail which is well maintained and provides incredible scenery.

Well worn, wide trail with some great views. Pretty steady assent so not the best for out of shape ppl but there’s lots of places to rest along the way!

A nice easy one, either to start the season or to take kids or older tourists. Summit super early sunrise for an amazing view of sunrise over Rundle.

It was a beautiful up hill trek with lots of places to rest. Heavily trafficked with very friendly hikers. I hiked with a beginner hiker and she felt it was difficult, but made it to the top with only a few stops.

Not a very technical trail, great for beginners. We have also done this in spring where there was snow and ice and we did just fine. Good views of Banff

Tunnel is a good first mountain climb experience. The path is wide and feels safe. Nice views of Banff and the golf course.

My first mountain hike and it was pretty easy, once I adjusted to the incline. Was pretty busy, mid day on a Sunday. Nice views.

A decent hike. The first part I found pretty boring, but once you get up to the cliff side the cool winds hit you and it's great for the rest of the hike. It is a decent ascent although not that long. There are two parking lots, a lower and upper from where we hiked. The views are both over the town and over the valley and golf course (with the mountains in the background). People are around but it was not crowded at about 1pm on a Monday in September.

I did this twice the same day. The views are breathtaking and look at this work of nature. A tree with the saddle?

Our favourite early/late season hike! The kids look forward to this one. It takes some energy, but is a great family activity.

Gorgeous views of Banff and the fairmont! Sunday morning hike started at 9 and was getting busy. Next time I'll arrive earlier as downhill was very busy.
