This was a nice walk-not really a hike, so it would be good for families with young kids.
A few tips:
1) Go all the way to the upper falls because it’s less crowded and very beautiful.
2) Keep going a little more after every...More
Signage from Banff was minimal our GPS did the work, the route led us through the most beautiful forests, past lakes and mountain views about 45 minutes from the turnoff. There are 2 entrances to the parking which was ample and washrooms were well appointed,...More
We went here around 1030 AM and it was a bit busy. We're a couple with a 3 year old toddler who enjoys being carried vs. hiking. The trail is very easy with some uphill on the way to the falls. There was a 15...More
Took us a couple of hours to complete this hike, considering we had an 8 and 5 year old. In all fairness most of the tome was spent waiting for the 2 different viewing points, one at the lower falls and the other at the...More
Easy and beautiful hike despite the crowds. The path is narrow and it was packed when we showed up around 4:00 pm, so this is definitely a hike to do early morning or evening. Really loved being down in the canyon and the board walks...More
This is an awesome hike! About 3 miles round trip, it' an easy stroll through a tree covered forest and along the canyon's rock ledge. It's a popular trail, so it can be crowded, but it is worth it. There were less people on the...More
We took friends from Japan & hiked to the lower falls on Aug. 11. We arrived at 11:00am. I knew we were in for a crowded trail as cars were parked on the side of the road long before arriving at the parking lot. In...More
We hiked the upper and lower falls portion of the trails. It was pretty busy, but not too busy to get some great pics and take in the views! The canyon is pretty amazing! The parking lot was full when we left mid-morning so its...More
The Johnson Canyon Trial to upper and lower falls is well maintained making it an easy hike to the falls even though one ascends the whole way. The falls are quite spectacular as is the canyon. Take the Roam Bus to the canyon as parking...More
Went here in the afternoon so could get an easy parking spot. It’s a nice walk to see the canyon, but nothing too special.
Think during the day it’s very crowded so don’t now if would make the stop then.
Hello we visited mid June. Fabulous canyon. Not an issue parking when we went but we had travelled by Coach so unsure how many spaces are allocated for cars although designated area looked quite generous so plenty of space... More

Cars and buses tend to clear out early afternoon, so you should have no problem parking. Even when there is a full lot, drive in there anyway, cars are continually leaving. The 1/2-mile hike is the most crowded... More
Cars and buses tend to clear out early afternoon, so you should have no problem parking. Even when there is a full lot, drive in there anyway, cars are continually leaving. The 1/2-mile hike is the most crowded, mostly because crowds of people unload from buses and converge on the short hike because that’s all they have time for. Going in the afternoon is good, dress in layers and just know that you may be dealing with mosquitoes.
