A must see hike! It is so unique with the red rocks and surrounding mountains peaks. It can be done alone or in conjunction with more hikes in that area.

Apart from being a beautiful place with lovely walks we saw our first brown bear just strolling down the road. It walked right next to the car so we got great pictures

Amazing view. The name really adheres to the color of the Canyon. The water down below is very clear. Can accommodate beginner hiker. A must to see if you love nature. Alberta hasn't disappointed us in our 7 days of stay.

Red Rock Canyon is probably on the list of every visitor. The parking can be tricky during the busy summer months so we stopped in early. The colours of the rocks is due to chemical reactions with the Fe in the sediments during deposition and...More

There really isn't a lot to see here compared with what the Rockies in general have to offer. Definitely not something to put on your must do list.

Great day spot to river walk and picnic. The red rocks are pretty special and the scenery is wonderful. There is free parking and public washrooms with flush toilets. This is a starting point of some well travelled trails, too.

It was very crowded and parking was difficult. Also difficult to get a picture of the canyon itself as everyone was down playing in the water. I would recommend getting there early in the day.

Red Rock Canyon is roughly 30 minutes from Waterton village. The drive is scenic and there's a good chance you'll spot wildlife including bears. There are several short hikes that start at Red Rock Canyon.

Very popular place at Waterton. Easy walk and beautiful red rocks in the canyon. You can go right down to the water and hang out watching other people do crazy stuff! Great for kids to wade and swim.

We went up early, got parking in the near lot and descended into the canyon. Bring your water sandals or shoes if you have them. Just an interesting, low key, fun experience. Some of the rocks can be a bit slippery. Our children are teenagers,...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

Yes. Easily accessible and a beautiful place to hang out. A couple of hikes are available, too.
