This was one of the kids favorite things about our visit to Waterton Lakes. They played and played in the water, despite the very cold temperature of it, the day we visited. Going down into the canyon and walking upriver was a popular activity the day we were there.

The drive up there is a nice one, all winding and full of slopes. The canyon itself is a sight to behold and if you are into hiking, the trails are nice. Good spot to go whether you want to swing by for a quick look or if you wanna stay longer for the hike.

Though Red Rock Canyon is not a very long hike, it was still quite spectacular and served as a jumping off point for Goat Lake, a waterfalls and 2 other lake trails. Water has carved the canyon over a long period of time. Supposedly, each year, the rock is further eroded by the thickness of 1 - 2 nickles. The... More

The hike up the red rock canyon is steep but short. The scenery is breathtaking. The rocks are red, and when they get wet, they look VERY red. It was a pleasant hike.

I am relaying my wife and kid's comments on Red Rock Canyon. I did not go on the hike (I chose to hang with my brother-in-law who was on the mend from knee surgery). Of the three hikes we took that day, my family was ecstatic over Red Rock Canyon. Lots to see and easy to traverse. All of us... More

This easy hike is especially pretty in the morning. You can combine it with the hike to Blakiston Falls or hike the one mile (round trip) canyon by itself. The red walled canyon is beautiful and the early morning sun splashes the canyon with dappled sunlight.

We timed our drive on the road to Red Rock Canyon so that we would be leaving at dusk in an attempt to see wildlife . We did see a black bear driving in and another while driving out. While t the end of the canyon we took a very lovely trail to Blakston Falls.

Very unique creek and rock formation, lots of fun to walk up the canyon so wear sandals or water shoes and maybe your bathing suit.

It was clean and well kept. No garbage. Bridge over canyon but you could get down to rocks to experience creek and rocks. Washroom looked ok but we were told it was smelly.
