Fantastic little hike. I am sure most people could make this hike. If your a little out of shape, just take it slow and I don't think it would be an issue to get to the top.
Another fantastic view easy to access. You see the Fairmont and the Rimrock and Banff on the top, Beautiful!

I highly suggest Tunnel Mountain hike with access from Tunnel Mountain dr or from the town . The hike takes about 45 minutes and isn’t that hard or too high but the view of the town of Banff and surrounding is spectacular so worth the effort

We did the north part of it to the hotels but the rest was already closed I assume for the season. Check before going!

A nice little drive with some great areas to pull over and enjoy the view-be sure to stop at the hoodoos viewpoint. If you want to hike up tunnel mountain, go early in the summer to get a parking spot!

We went down to look at the Hoodoos and followed the road as far as it went. Was a nice drive with trees on both sides and a couple of spots to stop and take pictures. I'd recommend it.
