Very easy view spot, gorgeous colours and information stands explaining the history of the rocks. Lots of people hang out here, tough to get a picture without someone in it! Otherwise great spot!

This is a short easy walk. There were a bunch of people hanging out down in the canyon, which doesn't make for great photos. Coming from Utah, it was pretty underwhelming. However, done in conjunction with Blakiston Falls (same parking lot), I would call it a 5 star hike.

This is short, but well worth the visit. I happened to go twice, once at sunset and once to head to Blakiston Falls. The upper bridge was closed, at the time but it was still a gorgeous place to visit.

This was our last day in Waterton Lakes, so we decided to walk the cold water of the Red Rock Canyon.

Easy walk, pretty unique color, (it's really red, especially the wet rock) Some cool photo ops, lots of wildflowers in the area as well

Very interesting rock formations. The kids had a blast. Amazing wild flowers. Saw a herd of mountain sheep.

This isn't really a hike. It's a paved walk around the canyon. The drive from Waterton to Red Rock is worth it though. Drive slow and watch the ridges you'll see a bear. So many people it's crazy. If you brought water shoes and walked into the canyon it would make it more enjoyable but come early or go late to avoid the crowds.
