Summer 2018 Hikes

Coral Creek Canyon

May 25, 2018

The first hike of the series takes us along the Cline River Canyon and the Coral Creek Canyon to a lunch spot overlooking the broad Coral Creek valley above the canyons.

We'll be hiking around 7 km on this hike on an easy to moderate trail.


Siffleur Falls + The Benches

June 22, 2018

We'll start with the classic Siffleur Falls hike, taking in the views of the canyons and surrounding peaks before making our way up on the benches to a viewpoint overlooking the Kootenay Plains and North Saskatchewan River.

This easy hike is a little longer than Coral Creek Canyon at about 10 km.

Hoodoo Creek + Whitegoat Falls

July 20, 2018

We'll be doing 2 hikes on this tour, each a little over 4 km. Our first stop is the popular Hoodoo Creek trail with the great views of Abraham Lake. The moderate trail follows the creek bed with a few sections requiring a little bit more effort than what we've seen so far.

Our next stop is the pretty Whitegoat Falls, another 4 km hike with a double set of waterfalls waiting for us at the end and lots of Western Wood Lilies along the way.
