The Tunnel Mountain Trail is one of the oldest, but certainly also one of the best trails in Banff National Park. The trail is well maintained, easily accessible and therefore ideal for tourists. A wonderful panoramic view of the city , the Bow Valley and Mount Rundle make the tour one of the best to get to know the region. The name " Tunnel Mountain " came up in the 19th Century, when the Canadian Pacific Railway ( CPR) wanted to build a tunnel through the mountainin 1882. Although the plans were quickly discarded, the name remained.
