Families and kids play in the water flowing through the canyon, while some people choose to hike the paths along both sides of the canyon. There are bathroom facilities located at the at the canyon. There are common sightings... More

Get right down into the canyon and wear water shoes as you will get up to your waste at some points, well worth it.

We were warned there are a lot of bears in this area so were worried we'd walk around a corner and see one! A nice area, a few walks, up the canyon and back down and along to a waterfall. Worth the extra drive out from waterton to get a true feeling of the outdoors!

It's just what the name implies...a canyon of red rock. Very pretty. Looks like a good place to hike, but we were there on a snowy day.

We did not gave as much time here as we would have liked. Great scenery with the different rock formations, colors. We did enjoy seeing different plants that was growing in the rocks. Lots of natures beauty to take in. We will come again & spend more time here.

This is an easy hike for a few minutes. It takes you past red rocks and water which acts as a slide for people wanting to swim.
