Surprise Corner Reviews & Ratings
Parking will be your biggest problem here but aside from that when we come to banff we almost always come explore this area. You have to be a little adventurous to see the good stuff but you can get down to the river and see the falls from another side.
Lovely, even managed to catch a train going by. This is a very popular spot for landscape photographers and even trainspotters. Definitely was gorgeous in the winter.
A tiny corner that most people miss. You get an awesome view of the major hotels in the other side and get away from the hustle of Banff.
