Beautiful!

An easy hike around the gorge. The parking lot was filled but there is a lot a short distance down from that one. You can also take longer walk

A must see - the drive itself will most likely let you see quite a few beautiful animals!! REMINDER: DO NOT APPROACH WILDLIFE - they are dangerous and need to be respected.

Very short up and back. Beautiful view of the red rocks in the canyon if you go later in the day when the sun shines in.

Most people stopped at the falls which are nice. Keep going along the river to see the rock color change. The mountain peaks around you are impressive.

You can climb down to dip your toes in the cold water or just stay on the trail at the top for great pics and beautiful scenery

Spectacular. A short drive from the park entrance, this natural wonder is worth the visit. Gleaming red rock and a trickling creek are the highlights of this beautiful attraction.

Breath taking scenery. We saw two brown bears during our evening drive. If you are in Waterton Park this is a must do.
