Good hike up to the canyon. We got turned around because of a storm that rolled in on us, so we didn't get to explore and enjoy the canyon or the apparent falls below. Walked out drenched with lightning over our heads, but it was exciting all the same.

Went on this hike with my sister, there was some bushwhacking involved. We were aiming for Coral Ridge not the canyon, but the ridge hike isn’t on this app. Got turned around for about 90 mins but spotted some piles of dog poop in the deep bush which reenergized our motivation and we didn’t stop till we got to the top of that ridge. You can see Abraham Lake, David Thompson Highway and more from up there. The view was stunning, and once you reach the ridge, you can follow it all the way up to the mountain peak. We were finding fossils at the top of the ridge, as well spotted a huge gorgeous golden owl on the way up. Pack snacks and plan for an extra couple hours, as it’s easy to get turned around. Path is becoming overgrown, but you can see it if you take your time and keep your eyes open. We went off a hiking book published in the late 90s, so some things had changed since then. This one is much more difficult than the Allstones Lake hike, and is only 20-30km west of Allstones on the David Thompson Highway west of Nordegg, AB.

This is a hike everyone should see. The view at the top is amazing. It's a short hike but a great view of the valley below. The hike is good for all levels. The only downfall was that horses can also use the trail and it's very obvious.

This was my third time on this trail and it is always beautiful. Make sure you take she sharp left down into the trees after crossing the water fall then you can come back in the main trail as a loop.

Easy hike, not well marked but you’ll manage. Views are amazing. On a long weekend I encountered heavy traffic. Some dogs are kept on leash (they should), some others are off. Few people on horses riding as well. It took me 1 hour to get to the top.

Well kept trail with some nice views. We had a great afternoon!! Wouldn't recommend with small children.

An ambitious extension to Coral Creek Canyon Trail, this route requires navigation skills, some bushwhacking, and very steep scree slopes. Well worth the hard work. Fossils can be found all along the ridge. 360 degree views.

Good trail. We didn't complete the loop though. The loop trail wasn't clearly marked so we ended up continuing on the Cline River trail (it's a wider trail). Many trails branch off so this would be a fun area to explore. Due to poor trail markings and not as good of views as other trails in the area I am only giving it 3 stars. I would go again though, I would just need to check my app to make sure I take the correct turn. We took our older dog on the trail. The trail is dog friendly (and is also used as a horse trail) but you will need to bring water for your pooch! There is a small creek near the beginning of the trail and a small watering hole a little farther in but that's it for water!

This was a pleasant surprise, we took to the trail from the Coral and White Coat Waterfall trail head. With very little to no trail markers, we headed up the trail to a point where we decided to cross the creek very early in the hike. We continued straight back into the bush following the horse trails, we came another point where we had to make another choice, the trail turned to the right or went straight, again we carried on straight! Thats where we came to the Coral Canyon! Wow what a surprise as we did not read the Trail details on All Trails. We just wanted to see more so we carried on with no trail markings we made it to the only Trail Mark we found that lead us to the Coral Creek! Total in and out was 8.8Km 264M incline.
