A Short Winter Hike In Alberta Leads To The Most Enchanting Frozen Canyon & Waterfall
Ok maybe we're excited for winter, after all. 😍
If you're worried about being cooped up all winter long, we've got you covered.
Alberta is filled with stunning winter sights andshould be at the top of your list.
You can choose to walk up to the upper falls which is about 2.5 kilometres one way or to just stick with the lower falls which is about 1.2 kilometres one way, says Parks Canada. No matter what you choose, it will be dreamy and beautiful.
The canyon is located in the Banff area and from the trailhead, everything is well marked and easy to follow. Just be sure to stay on the trail at all times.
You'll walk along wide trails, narrow bridges, and so many beautiful ice formations.
The Upper Falls are 30-meters high and absolutely awe-inspiring.
You can stand near the base or keep walking to view from the top.
While the area is super popular, the road to get there has been closed to cars for the past few months during COVID-19. Though, locals have been enjoying biking or hiking up there during the summer.
Banff National Park doesn't have a definitive answer on when it will reopen for cars and parking, though you can keep an eye on their current closures.
