Beautiful scenery, easy walk for all ages. Canyon is sheltered from the wind, so it's much warmer inside. Enjoy the views.. bring a camera, water and good walking shoes

After several days in Glacier Park, we spent a day in Waterton Lakes Park. Red Rock Canyon was a short side trip with nice walk along low canyon. About .8 miles away is a waterfall.

Enough parking and great paths to get to a fun and beautiful natural setting. Wonderful on a hot day - families enjoying splashing and climbing the canyon-- dogs too!

Enjoyable, but so overcrowded on a day when they had to turn away visitors to park. Try to visit on an off time and not a national holiday.

The drive to Red Rock Canyon was sensational with plenty of places to turn off the road for photos or to let someone pass. The canyon itself was a bit disappointing as it's not what I would call a "canyon "at all- more like a...More

I was told at the Canadian Visitor Center in Glacier National Park that you are allowed to walk, sit, and swim in the creek waters. I think it actually gets pretty busy up there during the warmer months. There weren't any... More
