Trip Planner:   Canada  /  Alberta  /  Bragg Creek  /  Wildlife Areas  /  Elbow Falls Provincial Recreation Area

Elbow Falls Provincial Recreation Area, Bragg Creek

(3.8/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Follow the water's lead to the rushing waterfalls of Elbow Falls Provincial Recreation Area. A small set of waterfalls leads to the main 6 m (20 ft) drop. The height of the exposed walls fluctuates with the water's vastly changing water level. Surrounding the falls is a 1 km (0.62 mi) long hiking trail that starts and finishes at a nearby picnic area. The site suffered significant damage following a powerful flood in 2013 that affected the picnic area and paved walking trails, but the natural beauty shines through. You'll likely see kayakers, canoer, and fishermen here. Our Bragg Creek vacation trip planner makes visiting Elbow Falls Provincial Recreation Area and other Bragg Creek attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • But do not let that put you off. It really is a beautiful setting. Easy walk, with well defined routes and great view up the valley. Only saw it after the flood of 2013, hence the title, but still wor...  more »
  • Il faisait -23 degrés mais c'était magnifique. La neige, le paysage...C'était superbe... On a même vu un castor et un cincle d'Amérique. Si près de Calgary, ça but vraiment le coût. 
  • Not too busy, a few walking paths and great view of the falls. Never saw it before the flood but I hear it has changed durastically.
