About this Trail

To really experience why Waterton is "where the mountains meet the prairies" you will need to take the winding, rolling wonder of the Red Rock Parkway. 

If you are interested in history, numerous interpretive pullouts will satisfy your curiosity along the way.  At the end of your journey, you will be rewarded with stunning views of the aptly named Red Rock Canyon. 

The Canyon Loop, a 0.7 km walk around the site offers fantastic views of the colourful rock.  Walk a little further on a short but scenic hike to Blakiston Falls (2 km) to get an impressive birds-eye view of the water cascading over the deep-red rocks. 

Excellent wildlife viewing opportunities and spectacular sunsets await you on the Red Rock Parkway.
