Waterton Lakes National Park was breathtaking. I would recommend any traveler in Montana to cross the border and see this park. Great mountains, rivers, and lakes. Great hiking trails. Our family had a great vacation there.

Lovely views. Nice short hike with longer hikes possible. The color of the rocks was very interesting. It's unfortunate that so many people don't follow the signs and stay out of the canyon. Not only are they destroying the view for current visitors, they are destroying it for future generations.

Definitely worth a visit... the canyon is carved out of red ferrous rock and quite impressive. Paths are set up on either side with crossover bridge. Was also able to climb down into the bottom of canyon where the creek was flowing. Excellent parking area and toilet facilities.

We had such fun on the.9km hike with our young kids. The kids loved it and it was easy for all of us. Beautiful views and we will do it again. Bathrooms were very clean.

Had a great time, so much so we went twice. The road up is s fun drive and there are great opportunities to see black bears. While the river in the canyon is cold, we had a great time going up and down the canyon with the kids.

Loved Red Rock Canyon. So different than any of the other places we had visited on our road trip of the National Parks. There is a nice parking area and easy to get down to the water. We had a picnic lunch while soaking our feet in the small river. There were several people in bathing suits and many families... More

A must see when you're in Waterton. The drive to the canyon is very scenic in itself. The canyon offers walking and hiking trails and spectacular views of the surrounding mountains, as well as lots of information about the area.

We went on a cloudy afternoon so the red rocks weren't as vivid as I could imagine they might be. It was a pleasant stroll along the stream. Many kids were playing in the water.

If you are staying in Waterton it is worth driving up to Red Rock Canyon. The canyon itself is great and a good place to cool off on a hot day. It can get a bit crowded but there is always room to dip your feet. This is also a starting point for some amazing hikes. The drive to the... More
