We drove by Johnson’s Canyon trail and saw 100+ cars parked outside. This parking lot was empty and takes you right to the top of Johnson’s Canyon.
If you keep right you can actually meet up with Johnson’s Canyon trail at the top of the lower falls.
This is what we did... we went from the lower falls to the upper falls then took the trail towards the ink pots but followed the Moose Flats trail back to the car.
This trail is a major Banff Hack!

Hiked this trail last weekend and it was great! A few icy spots where spikes would have helped, but we were able to manage with just regular hiking shoes/boots.

A walk through the same Forrest scenery the whole way with no landmark to mark the end of this 5 mile out and back. Can go an extra mile to see the paint pots. This is a good trail to avoid the crowds of Johnston Canyon trail. Hike out about two miles then take the marked trail to the right to the end of Johnston Canyon. This is the best use of this trail.

Great alternative to the Johnston Canyon trail to reach the ink pots. Can be a bit muddy at spots with the mid June runoff. Quiet and an easy hike with very little traffic. Joins up to Johnston Canyon trail just past the upper falls.
