Park at Hoodoo Creek 3kms south of Windy Point just east of David
Thompson Resort on the
west of Rocky Mountain House.
3.5 hours from Calgary.
you're traveling from
the route through the National Parks
is shorter than heading through
Rocky Mountain House.
Locate the trailhead on the north side of the highway east side of Hoodoo Creek.
Continue on the trail as it ascends the creek canyon until you reach the
Hoodoos. The Hoodoos and the large boulders resting on top look like they're
going to fall at any moment. From here the trail disappears and the hike turns
into an easy creek and canyon scramble. Hoodoo Creek runs crystal clear and is
very inviting on a hot day. The clear stream pools found amongst the rock slaps
are beautiful. As you scramble your way up the canyon you'll see a cave opening
on your right. A short quick hike up the scree slope places you in the caves
entrance. The cave has a very large cavern with a tunnel leading towards the
back wall where it looks like another tunnel extends on higher above. A few old
trees have been dragged to this point to use as a ladder.
