It's a neat little hike into the beginning of the badlands of Drumheller. Not an easy or accessible hike for everyone though as it's a bit difficult if you have mobility issues to get down onto the canyon floor. There are also no signs of any kind for the loop itself and many seemingly proper paths leading to no where. We hiked further than the loop by a ways on some trails but had to double back a few times on the way back trying to take a different route because trails led nowhere. Beautiful area though.

We've done this canyon several times, from hiking the whole canyon floor to climbing up to the highest peaks. It's a fun place to explore. Be sure to wear proper footware as the dirt and rocks are very loose and cannot be trusted to be stable. Also bring lots of water!

Fun and different, suitable for kids. Be prepared with water, hats, sunscreen, etc. for really hot temperatures in this area during summer.
