84 – Upper Falls of Johnston Canyon

If you’re in Banff National Park and looking to get out for a couple hour walk (there and back), one of the more popular day-hikes in the park would be the journey through Johnston Canyon to Upper Falls.  The amazing aqua-blue colour of Johnston Creek enchants the surrounding natural area, while a catwalk leads you into the depths of the canyon.  You pass by a string of waterfalls, including Lower Falls where you must step through a cave to gain a full view, before reaching this gem.
