The hike around the canyon is beautiful. I loved seeing children playing in the water down in the canyon. The area is beautiful and well worth the drive.

Well this is a nice side trip that give opportunity to see the "other side" of mountains surrounding Waterton.

Driving to Red Rock Canyon and you have great chances of seeing wildlife, take your time, drive slowly. The canyon is fantastic, with the right light the colors are stunning.

Explored Waterton all summer. Did many different hikes. Always wound up at Red Rock by the end of the day. So beautiful to hike threw the Canyon. Great family destination, kids will love the natural small slides in the water and the cold clear pools on a hot summer day.
