Johnston Canyon is one of the most scenic and popular hikes in Banff National Park. It features a boardwalk that takes you inside a gorgeous canyon full of rushing water and seven gorgeous waterfalls. It’s so popular because it’s accessible to just about anybody. The walkway is paved with minimal elevation gain.
While the canyon is teeming with people in the summer, winter is the season that this place really shines. The sharp blue of the water contrasts with the snow and ice and make it one of Banff’s most photogenic spots. We could describe it in further detail but we’ll let the video and photos do the talking on this one.
Make sure to check out our hiking partners’ blog – bingoandbunny – for more great photos and a fantastic video of the hike!
