Trip Planner: Canada / Alberta / Canadian Rockies / Waterton Lakes National Park / Blakiston Falls
Set within Waterton Lakes National Park, Blakiston Falls are worth the short downstream hike through a lush, aromatic forest. Bring your camera, as you will be rewarded with lovely views of the rapids, the canyon runoff, and Mount Blakiston from the viewing platforms--two below the waterfall accessible by a wooden staircase, and one right over the top of the falls providing a bird's-eye view.

Blakiston Falls reviews
This is an easy 1.5 KM hike to the falls. Along the way you walk through the burned out forest but is fun to see all of the new growth already.

Parks Canada has done a great job developing this area with several lookouts overlooking the falls and canyon.

An easy 1 km walk from the Red Rock Canyon, the waterfall is small but nevertheless worth the short walk and is viewed from atop metal platforms set up around it, such that wading in the rapidly flowing waters is disallowed. Expect to see wildlife traversing freely throughout the area, such as mule deers.
The 1km trail to the falls is absolutely breath taking! With great views all around, getting to the falls was a brisk. Light foot traffic!
