Tunnel Mountain Campground Loop
Banff, Alberta, Canada
Tunnel Mountain Campground Loop is a recent addition to the Tunnel Mountain Trails, completed as a full loop in 2011. Best described as a wide gravel path with next to no elevation gain that circles the campground popping in and out of the surrounding forest. It is the interior loop to Tunnel Loop, an intermediate singletrack mountain bike trail. This is a great leisurely ride for families, young ones, and the young at heart.
Watch out for strolling campers and wildlife when pedaling this route. Elk, deer, and the elusive coyote are often spotted along this trail. There are plenty of spots to rest along this route. Pause and enjoy the surrounding mountains and inhale the fresh mountain air. On the weekends the loop tends to get a bit of traffic, but during the week and weeknights, you’ll find the peace and tranquility you’re after when going for a short spin along this path.
