Not your traditional "trail", the red rock canyon adventure is following a creek/stream up the mountain for as long as you can.The creek/stream is at the bottem of a 50 foot deep ravine coloured by red rock, hence it's name. It is loads of fun and my younger sister that is 13 along with me have done up to 3-4 kilometres each year. the water at some points can be as deep as 4 feet, so swimming trunks are advised, as are sandals with good grip. The water is glacial water, meaning it is freezing cold, and rocks can be a little slippery, but generally aren't. this year i plan on going for up to 4 kilometres. Some parts are stenuous, and involve balancing on a broken log to go on. If this seems too intense for you, a paved trail circles above for about 1 kilometre or less. It is certainly an adventure worth taking if you travel to waterton.

Directions:

enter the waterton lakes national park gate and continue until you hit a sign directing you to "Red rock canyon". the road is about 30km and has nice views and stop areas. the road ends in a parking lot where the hike begins.
