The second walk we hike in Waterton Lakes National Park is the Red Rock Canyon. We park our car at the end of the Red Rock Parkway on a large parking lot. The day after Labor Day is a lot quieter and we can park our car easily.

We begin the walk along the side of the parking lot along in the Red Rock Canyon. We follow the paved footpath to the bridge over the Red Rock Canyon. Apparently it is allowed to walk through the Red Rock Canyon, because we see several tourists walking through the Red Rock Canyon in the water. However, we follow the paved path and walking the circle to the Red Rock Canyon between the other tourists.

The round walk along the Red Rock Canyon is not very long, so we decide to hike to the Blakiston Falls as well. At the end of the Red Rock Canyon we walk into the forest towards the Blakiston Falls. Again we do not walk alone, but behind a group of young people. In bear territory that is not so bad, they make enough noise for everyone. After a short walk we are on the first viewing platform overlooking the Blakiston Falls in Waterton Lakes National Park. We have a nice view of the Blakiston Creek and Blakiston Falls and take the time to look at this lovely waterfall. We walk to the next viewing platform. With this platform you stand right above the Blakiston Falls, but he does give a nice view of the Blakiston Creek in Waterton National Park.

After a short break we walk through the woods back to the car park at the Red Rock Canyon in Waterton Lakes National Park. This nice little hike should not be missed during a visit to Waterton Lakes National Park.
