These hills go on and on. There is a trail for those who are adventurous. The colours of the different rocks is amazing.

We went there just before sunset. Beautiful scenery and lots of prairie dogs to see. Sadly, we did not have time for a hike, but it sure is a beautiful place for a hike.

So worth the trip to see the unique land formations of the area. If you are not nimble enough for the hike pack a chair and wait for the rest of your group to hike the trails and bring back beautiful pics of the hidden beauty from the floor of the canyon.

This location might get overshadowed by the hoodoos, but I found it to be more breathtaking than the hoodoos (which were a bit of a let down). I'd definitely recommend taking a couple hours to explore the area! Bring proper walking footwear and go early to avoid the heat. It's probably better suited for singles and families with older children.... More

We went in the early evening, incredible views, beautiful light. The trails into the canyon are a bit steep, but worth the effort.

Beautiful views, well worth walking down into the canyon. Go early in the morning or later towards evening and miss the crowds. be aware there are no toilets/ washrooms here.

The view and opportunity to explore combine to make this one of Canada's best attractions. Don't expect anything on the scale of the Grand Canyon, but don't miss the opportunity to enjoy a part of the country unlike any other.
