We sometimes recommend that you drop into the visitor centers of the mountain parks to gain more appreciation for the area you are in, and to obtain expert advice on specific interests.

Take Highway 1 past Banff. After approximately 6 kilometers, turn right onto Bow Valley Parkway. Drive approximately 17 kilometers, turn right into Johnston Canyon parking lot.

TREK THE TRAIL TO CAVES, FALLS & INK POTS

The Johnston Canyon trail is located at the base of Café and restaurant. As you journey up the Canyon trail, the rugged wilderness is tamed by the well-used path and you are invited onward. Glimpses of wildlife can be seen along the trail – either in body or evidenced by tree markings. You can use your imagination to visual a bear scampering up that tree after being startled, or the elk marking its territory with its majestic rack.

The soothing waters of the creek provide background music on your trek and grow to a crescendo as you approach the Lower and Upper Falls. A viewing platform has been erected over the creek for the best possible view of the 30 m cascade of water of the Upper Falls. The trail continues on to the Ink Pots in a breath-taking open forest meadow. This 5.9 km (3.7 mile) easy to moderate hike is well worth adding to your list of Rocky Mountain vacation ideas.

BANFF AND LAKE LOUISE A SHORT DRIVE AWAY

When you stay at Johnston Canyon resort you are only 25 minutes from swimming, horseback riding, canoeing, a ride in a gondola and shopping in Banff and Lake Louise.

  • We were delighted with the cabin for comfort and its furnishings. We met the cleaning staff and they were extremely courteous and friendly. We found the place rather large so we would have liked to have had a map.

    -Kari S., Edmonton, Canada
  • Our Cabin was adorable and perfect and we hope they never change it. The walk next to the resort was fabulous. The walk can get pretty busy during the day because it is such a lovely walk.
