on the east side of the David Thompson Highway (#11)
just past the causeway going over Allstones Creek. 194kms west of Rocky Mountain House. 4.5 hour drive from Edmonton, 3.5 hours from Calgary. If you're traveling from Calgary the route through the National Parks is shorter than heading through Rocky Mountain House.
Were an old pair of runners
for the numerous creek crossings.
This is a great hike to do with
young children on a hot
summers day. Cross the highway, or if you really
want to have some fun head over to
the flood culvert that runs under
the highway. Kids will love
this section, you can all walk
an 80m dry culvert before you drop
down to Allstones Creek. From here
you follow the creek upstream 2.25kms until you reach a
high waterfall. There is no point in
trying to keep your feet dry. You'll
have to cross Allstones Creek in
several locations to continue on.
The creek George is surrounded by interesting
rock walls that are not often seen
in the Canadian Rockies. At about 1.75kms
you'll reach a
high narrow step in the creek. You
can scramble up the middle through
the flowing creek or work your way
up the right over some slippery
rock. Continue on until you reach
the falls. From the falls you can
climb a short steep slope to
gain the ridge over Allstones Creek.
