This is a beautiful area for the whole family to relax. You can hike around the canyon and admire its beautiful red hues in the rocks; and then climb down three or four steps and relax beside the river or climb right in the water.

At the end of a hot day hiking and walking in the park bring the kids to Red Rock Canyon and spend a hour in the water. If you have time walk up the creek to find some cool pools and kind-of water slides. It can be busy but then again you don't have to put any effort into getting... More

This hike to the falls is amazing. You can't ride your bike which kinda sucked but other than that it was wicked. The views and open path that makes it easy to even bring a stroller. The path goes along side a river that has openings in which you can actually go right down to if. The drive to red... More

beautiful drive on the red rock parkway. it dead ends at the red rock canyon. it's an easy stroll around the waterfall/ cascade canyon. amazing red rocks. they seem as if they don't belong here. great place to play and swim on a hot day. for us it was still very pretty in the rain. bring your rain poncho- it...

It certainly is a fun place for kids and adults to play in the stream and climb on the stunning red rocks. We did not see any wildlife on our visit however. The slow narrow winding road is kept rough, I suspect to keep the speed down for the vehicles. It is about a 15km drive through some large mountain... More

This a fun place to visit , a bit of a drive from Waterton but worth it. Most of the time you can see bears along the way, DON'T FEED THE BEARS as they say a feed bear is a dead bear, Look at them enjoy them and take pictures from a distance and move on. Do not sit for... More

We ended one of our hiking days with a visit to Red Rock Canyon. What a beautiful place. It is obviously so-called because the rocks in the waterfall stream are red and that makes it so different than other waterfalls/streams. You can go right down into the stream and take off your shoes and soothe your aching hiking feet in... More

I love Arizona red rocks so this really appealed to me and was very unique in the midst of the amazing Rockies. Loved the drive going into red rock canyon too. We went three times in one day!

Awesome tiny walk (0.7km) of mostly flat trail. A fantastic quick activity that you can fit into a day if you are running low on time or not sure what to do with only a couple of hours. You are allowed to venture down and walk through the canyon itself which is great for kids or just cooling off with... More
