Definitely a must see in waterton park. It's a quick little hike which is nice if you aren't too active. You can also go down to the water on the side of the canyon to dip your toes in which was a nice add on....More

Certainly worth visiting but the size of this canyon will generally be a disappointment if one has previously seen other canyons. Nonetheless worth going
