Tunnel Mountain

NileGuide Expert Says:

This hike is one of the more popular hike for tourists. You can walk to the hiking path from the town center, and there is a beautiful view at the top. It takes about 2-3 hours though, so bring water, proper clothing and your camera (lots of wildlife along the way).

Even though it's called Tunnel Mountain, there is no tunnel involved. The mountain got its name when CPR proposed a train route there in 1882. But the lack of tunnel doesn't make this hike any less enjoyable. It starts within city limits so it's easily accessible – you can walk there from Banff Ave., and makes for a great day, or half-day excursion. The trail is well-maintained, heavily used and an ideal spot for visitors to get to know the area. You'll often see wildlife in and around the trail as well. The top offers a great view of the town and surrounding area, so bring your camera.
