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.
Follow the well
worn Siffleur Falls trail towards the North Saskatchewan River. Cross the
suspension bridge over the north Saskatchewan River then follow the long wooden
boardwalk. This area is very dry and sensitive to wind erosion. Over time, one
footprint can lead to a large wind blown hole. Once you reach the end of the
wooden boardwalk turn right and follow an old dirt road until you reach Loudon
Creek. From here you can follow Loudon Creek downstream to where it enters the
North Saskatchewan River. If you're on a bike you can continue on and ride all
the way to the Warden Station in Banff National Park near the Saskatchewan River
Crossing. The trail is no longer maintained past Loudon Creek so expect lots of
deadfall and small creek fords. Loudon Creek is situated
on the Kootenay Plains. This area
was once home to the Kootenay Indians.
Local campgrounds include
Two O'clock Creek and
Crescent Falls Campground. Trailheads to
