Went in August 2017 before the fire. It was a good place for kids to play, but not much of a hiking experience.

A good place to spend a warm sunny afternoon playing around on the rocks and in the water. A fun place for kids to explore.

Kids have a blast walking the canyon bottom. We even came back the next day and did it again but with crocs on.

Paved walk around the canyon. Even more fun to venture down into the canyon. You can even take a stroller all the way around this one.

Came here on Canada Day so it was super busy! There was a little pool-like area in the canyon that I really wanted to jump into. We were supposed to go back for it but sadly we were crunched on time. Next time!

Scenic and great for a short hike. Wading in the water a bonus on a hot day. Drive was also spectacular. Saw 2 bears.

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.

One of my favorite places in Waterton Park, This gorgeous canyon is such an awesome experience, put on your water shoes and swimsuit, and explore the canyon way beyond the rdige walk up top, get down and inside of it you will love it.

At the end of the park road in Waterton Lakes NP in Alberta, Canada. The trail is on both sides of the canyon. An easy walk up one side and back down the other. Very scenic!
