On our visit to Red Rock Canyon, we also walked to Blakiston Falls. The distance is only 1.2 miles roundtrip from Red Rock Canyon (about 2 miles total for both), and the trail is easy – only 100’ elevation gain. Two sturdy concrete viewing platforms...More

A nice hike, easy to do with our 8 year old. It is 2 km round trip and definitely a nice little outing in Waterton.

It was a very hot day but the hike to Blakiston Falls was not very long and worth taking the time to do. Very nice viewing platforms with multiple viewpoints for these falls.

The hike is really nice, easy is some spots and harder in others. The falls are nice but I have seen better

This is an easy, not too long hike ending at two new fall's viewing platforms. If you don't mind a fair number of people this is a nice rewarding hike.

Walked to the falls - easy 1.5 km walk each way - fantastic viewing platforms at the falls. Lots of benches to sit on to view and take in the scenery . Great area of Canada to visit

It is about a 20 minute walk to the falls from the Red Rock parking lot and the park has installed new access bridges for tourists.

We've been to Red Rock Canyon numerous times, and never went this trail, short and awesome. The Falls are beautiful, and very well looked after. Not to packed with people.
