No place better on a hot summer day. Bring shoes that can get wet and climb up the canyon for a unique experience.

Followed the signs to see where they ed and was rewarded with this stunning sight. We could not do the whole walk as a bridge was closed for repair, but the drive alone was worth it.

A trip to the Red Rock Canyon s a must when one visits the Waterton Lakes National Park. The access road is an undivided but well maintained roadway. The undulating topography of the access road makes it somewhat challenging while exciting for the driver. The mountain views are excellent from all points and direction. There are ample and spacious parking... More

A must see in Waterton. There are a lot of people at the Red Rock, and can be hard to find a spot to stand in the water to cool off. It is a very beautiful location, to relax and have a picnic.

A very twisty scenic drive to such a unique place that makes for amazing photos! While we were there we hiked to Blackiston Falls which is also very picturesque. The best part is it's free (other than the fee to get into Waterton).

This is so worth the drive to see. Take your swimsuits and towels on a hot day. If you are fortunate, like we were, you may see some bears on your drive!

On a scorching summer day we hiked the trail at the canyon. Interesting views and cool geography for the photo nut. After the walk we climbed into the canyon where our kids cooled off by playing in the water. The drive in was beautiful and as an added bonus we saw a black bear crossing the road on our way...

The red colored rock on the side of the creek was pretty, but not overwhelming. The best part of the drive was seeing cinnamon bears eating berries on the roadside on our way there! Not much to the canyon itself. What do you expect for an under one mile hike?

The road up to the canyon has just been repaved so it's an excellent road up there. It is the best place to see bears is on your way up to the canyon. Once you are there it's a gorgeous view from the pathway that goes around. It's an easy climb down into the creek that runs through as there... More

Been here many times over many years...never disappointing! Water was quite low. Hiked the lower canyon (waters edge) straight north for about 2 hours with my 6 and 8 yr olds. We stopped to swim and slide down the smooth rocks into the pools of water. We all had an amazing time!! Kids were tired on the trek back but... More
