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
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.
Local campgrounds include
Two O'clock Creek and
Crescent Falls Campground. Trailheads to
Alexandra's Henry's Trail,
Icefalls Two O'clock Creek,
