Get a parking spot as close to the end of the road as possible. Hike up the creek too really enjoy the different pools and water slides the creek has made. Our family loved it and will return.

We took this drive twice looking for animals, but no luck. It is a beautiful drive and winds along a river. Other people saw bear and sheep.

This is a great easy loop trail around the canyon. It is easy to get down to the creek and play around in the water too.

A visit to Red Rock Canyon should be on the list for all visitors to Waterton. The road out to the canyon is lovely with plenty of pull-outs -- in the spring it is absolutely awash with wildflowers. The canyon itself is small but striking. It's really a gorgeous spot and the color makes it quiet unique in this part... More

We drove the road out to Red Rock Canyon slowly, pulling over to let slower cars pass. The views are really nice on the way with some nice information stops along the way. At the canyon there is a nice paved path along the river. Many folks were down playing in the water and hiking up the canyon in the... More

The drive to Red Rock Canyon is really worth doing. The Canyon itself is beautiful and the red rocks make it a different kind of landscape than most of the park. It was busy with lots of people including a boys and girls club group playing in the water. You can walk around the canyon on a nice trail, not... More

We really enjoyed our too brief visit to Waterton. The village was lovely, the falls hard to find, the Great Northern gem spectacular. Our favorite site, though, was the road to Red Rock Canyon and the canyon itself. The road was beautiful .... a very fitting entrance into Waterton (the road taking off near the entrance gate), and the canyon... More
