Tunnel Mountain Hike Sep 08, 2014
I started the hike at 330pm from St Julian Rd near the Banff Centre where I was staying. Like most of the topography around there, it was obvious that the trail will be somewhat steep. The trail path is very clear and there are no spots where you might hesitate which direction to take. The trail's width is comfortable most of the way and accommodates 2 or 3 ppl walking side by side. In general, this is a popular trail and every few minutes you will see others. The first half of the hike is more tiresome than the 2nd half. As you get 3/4 of the way up, you will start to get rewarded with beautiful views. I thought that the hike will take you to a point where you will see the Banff town, however the nice surprise for me was that you also will have an unobstructed magnificent scenery of the other side of the mountain. That was a welcome plus. There are guard-rails at a couple of locations with strategic views. They are terrifying if you have young kids with you as there is no mesh-fence, and it is cliff-like underneath you. At the top of the hike you will find that there is no fencing. A smooth large rock is were people sit to enjoy the view. I got to the top at 5pm and started my journey back. I was at 6pm back in my room at the Banff Centre. Poles are recommended they are quite helpful.
