“A Must See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

This canyon is one of the sweetest experiences in my visit to Canada. There is a little 15 minute lovely stroll around the river and longer walks close by. The scenery is fabulous and a must see for Waterton visitors!

“Beautiful and Peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This canyon is busy in the summer as it is a common place to cool off while surrounded by nature. The drive is nice, with some fun ups and downs near the start. Parking can be a bit of an issue in the middle of summer, but it is a great place to see if you can. There is many trails that leave from the main part of the canyon, but the simple hike around the canyon is nice. The red rocks and the two streams in the area add to the beauty.

“Lovely colours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

The canyon is just next to the parking area and the colours are fantastic and it is definitely worth driving up out of Waterton for a walk here. We visited in summer and there were children playing in the water and people talking walks above the canyon which made the atmosphere pleasant. From here we took a further walk (about 1hr in total) to Blakiston Falls which were impressive.

“Lots of Fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

This is a great place for families. It has several easy hikes of various distances. Our kids love to climb down into the creek and play in the rock pools or hike up the canyon. There are also great picnic spots close by. On the winding road up to red rock watch for bears, moose, big horn sheep and deer. One of the best roads to go on if you're looking for bear in the Spring or fall.
