This is one of those well-hidden trails that have eluded many longtime locals. At the same time, it is one of the most pleasant rides in the immediate vicinity of Banff town site. It is short - only 2.7 miles point-to-point - but packs many dramatic views along its brief stretch. The views begin as you come out on the shores of the Bow River, with the sheer face of Tunnel Mountain up to your left. Across the river the towering face of Mount Rundle dominates with Sulphur Mountain to the south. At the halfway point, the views begin to roll north toward Cascade Mountain and the Fairholme Range.

The trail past the Hoodoo's leads to some well hidden and little Known bitchen single track, keep going past the hoodoos and then just explore some of the many trails, I was back there once and came face to face with a huge black bear, luck for me he wasn"t very aggressive and just looked at me while I turned and got out of there, It's a good place to go play when you are camping at the camp ground at tunnel mountain.
