Great Hike. It’s 2.9 km but if you loop around and go up and down the formations it takes up the better part of a day. We spent 5 hours but we entered on the east side past the old parking lot. Also there’s a brand new campground across the road.

Nice hike. My parents really enjoyed it. Not too busy so that was nice.

Very different from all other hikes we’ve done in Alberta, kind of a choose your own adventure with a staircase to get down so an easy hike!

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.

My son and I did this hike in August 2015. Great weather. Fantastic scenery. If it had not been for the low flying tour helicopter passing over every ten minutes we would have scored this trail higher. The constant sound of the rotors echoing through the valley really did ruin the hike for us.
