Johnston Canyon – Tried and Tested


Two weeks ago I wrote about great winter wonderlands to visit this year. I decided to take my own advice and go visit one of them myself!

I chose to visit the Johnston Canyon Ice Falls. Johnston Canyon is located within Banff National Park so be prepared to stop and pay for parking. It is approximately an hour and a half drive from the city.

The drive up was beautiful. Once you take the turn off towards the Canyon the roads get quite slippery so snow tires would be an asset!

The trail itself was slightly icy too, If you have snow grips I would suggest bringing them along. Luckily the trails are well groomed and have handles along the way.

Although it was cold and somewhat icy, this was a great easy walk that is also family friendly. You have the option of just going to the lower falls or trekking further to the upper falls.

Overall I would highly recommend this walk! But make sure you get there before all the ice melts! (see more photos below)

What Customers Say About Us


"Absolutely satisfied with the work done by the Yardworx crew. They were so efficient the only way I knew that they did my yard maintenance was by the aeration on my lawn. I have booked them again in the spring and will most assuredly recommend them to anyone looking for a fabulous yard maintenance crew, Thumbs up 5 stars."

"I am very pleased with the quality of work by the team who does my yard. The yard always looks good and they have never forgotten to make sure that the gate is latched so the dog cannot escape. They are in and out very quickly, and show up on the days I expect them. Excellent service and will be renewing for a third year. I have recommended them to others as well."
