Johnston Canyon and Ink Pots
The Johnston Canyon and Ink Pots area of beautiful Banff National Park, remain one of the more popular summer-time hiking areas in the park. This easy-to-find trailhead is located a short distance from Banff. Lace up your hiking shoes to enjoy a wonderful afternoon in the park. The hiking trail follows Johnston Creek through the forest as it makes its way to the Lower Falls, approximately 1.1km into the hike. Be sure to view the falls from the tunnel and be prepared to get wet.
Continue your hike along the trail to the Upper Falls at the 2.7km mark. The falls can be viewed from the bottom or the top. Walk along the cat-walk to reach the bottom falls viewing platform, or climb a short distance to reach the top viewing platform, near the top of the falls. Continue your journey in this wonderful recreation area, another 3km, to see the Ink Pots. Be sure to pack your camera to capture these incredible greenish pools, bubbling with cold mineral springs. After a fun-filled day in Southern Alberta, kick up your feet in a comfortable Best Western guest room for a enjoyable night's rest.
