  • Cool and short hike. It was great fun climbing down the beautiful red rocks to touch the water. Gets busy as it has been newly renovated with new wood flooring/stairs also it is a fairly easy hike perfect for families.
  • The canyon is nice to drive. The red rock at the end is beautiful. Take the hike to Blakiston falls. It's a short hike with a spectacular view of the falls at the end.
  • A nice place to visit if you go to Waterton National Park. The colors of the red canyon are beautiful. There are lots of trails to explore too.
  • Red Rock canyon is awesome! But make sure your take the short hike to the Blakiston falls
  • A beautiful place and a beautiful drive there. You can go on a long hiking tour there or a small pathway that goes up the Red Rock River. A great place to walk around in nature.
