Siffleur Falls Hike

  Ratings:    Ratings 3 Star
Level: Easy to Mod Time/Dist: 2 to 3 hours / 8K return Elevation Gain: 146m

Trailhead: Park at the Siffleur Falls parking lot next to the David Thompson Highway (#11) 210kms 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.

Description: 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 follow a gravel road for a short distance then cross over the Siffleur River bridge. Stay on the trail until you reach the Siffleur Falls view point approximately 4kms from the start. Once you reach the falls there are a few view points with guard rails providing safe views of the falls and gorge below. Take the "Dangerous Slopes" signs seriously, several people have lost their lives here. One brave individual tried to save his dog near the rock ledge above Siffleur Falls, unfortunately both we're drowned. Most people turn around at Siffleur Falls viewpoint however you can continue on towards another two sets of waterfalls. The second set of falls is another 2.5kms further and can only be viewed from the open view points located off trail. From here keep going along the canyon trail for another 1.5kms until it drops down towards the last set of falls. There is small camp site here and a few inuksuk's.
