When to go
The Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course is closed in winter so this a summer-only scenic drive.
Access is open to all but look out for golfers (on foot and on carts) who occasionally cross paths with the road.
Herds of resident elk are known to frequent this loop as well. As always in the park, keep an eye out and keep your distance from wildlife.
