Not hard to get too, but the rock formations were are amazing. No idea this existed in Alberta. Reminded me of Sedona AZ. It is pretty amazing to see, and anyone can get to it.

A great amount of parking when you arrive. There are wonderful walking trail and bridges. The colors are gorgeous and the fun wildlife in the area is wonderful. We saw the coolest birds called "dippers" that were diving into the creeks in search of food. We were robbed of some of our trail mix by a cute little chipmunk thief... More

We did the small .7km hike around the creek as my husband can't walk long distances. There was a rain to use as a handrail and stop to rest on all around, which was very helpful. The scenery here is absolutely stunningly beautiful! We are so glad we did this!

No words for the majestic beauty this encapsulates! This scenery and hike through was easy and entertaining enough even to keep a 5 year old happy and entertained. Need I say more?

Red Rock Canyon is one of my favourite attractions in Waterton Park. The canyon is a great outing for all ages. 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.
