Overview

Waterfalls, a canyon , the Siffleru River and the majestic Saskatchewan River are some of the joys of this accessible hike. The hike can be done year round and provides a wonderful perspective on the Kootenay Plans where the native Indians spent their winters due to the warm climate of the area. There are many other historical trails and excellent back country hiking in the vicinity.

What a lovely hike we had! We hardly saw anyone else on our walk, which was a nice change from the busyness of Banff. The views of the gorge and the waterfalls are stunning. Also not strenuous at all, which I appreciated! Top notch. :)

I was not overly prepared for the approximately 75-90 minute walk back to the falls but it was well worth the effort. The area is really quite beautiful and includes two well travelled trail back to the falls with varying degrees of difficulty. The falls...More

This is a great little hike that can be accomplished in a short amount of time. Only one steeper hill, the rest is pretty easy to navigate.

We make sure that we do the Siffleur falls hike every year. The trail crosses the Siffleur river and then rises above the canyon. The trail then follows the canyon up to the impressive waterfall. We always have a picnic at the falls. There are...More
