If you're staying in Radium or plan on visiting the Radium Hot Springs, definitely go to see it. If you're staying in the Banff area, however, here's the problem. Getting from Banff to Sinclair Canyon requires that you turn off the main highway leading to...More

The canyon, cliffs and crevises were impressive, and close to Radium hot springs. Magnificent drive, with frequent sightings of black bear, longhorn sheep and goats.

Staying in Radium, we drove about an hour along the highway to take in the scenery. It was early spring and most road side stops were closed due to snow, but it was still majestic just to drive through.

You really do feel small compared to this particular place , great place to take pictures and not crowded with tourist zoos.

Great hike. Views are worth the climb. Highlights included looking down from top of canyon and seeing the falls from below. Unfortunately due to construction, the pedestrian sidewalk is CLOSED this season. Sad. Not only was I looking forward to seeing the view looking up,...More
