Johnston Canyon - Banff National Park, Canada

Banff National Park in Albert, Canada offers over 1,000 miles of hiking trails. One of the most popular and not too difficult hikes is the Johnston Canyon trail. It is best to go either early or late season to avoid the big crowds. It is located only 16 miles north of the Town of Banff on the Bow Valley Parkway. The Johnston Creek has eroded a deep cleft in the limestone, which is made accessible by a catwalk that has been constructed. The hike to the Upper Falls is just over a mile from the trailhead. If you want a longer hike you can continue on to the Ink Pots, which are a series of cold-water springs that are normally clear blue in color, but will sometimes change to an inky black. The round trip hike to the Upper Falls will take around two hours and to the Ink Pots, four hours.
