Siffleur Falls hike – this easy, yet wonderful hike is about 3.5 hours from our home. The trail is full of mountain views, fresh air and clear glacier running water. If you’re looking for a backcountry experience then give this hike a try! It’s about 1.5 hours north of Lake Louise, and about 2.5 hours east of Red Deer – on highway 11. The drive itself is beautiful, too!

You know who loved this hike? Daphne! She’s a total mountain dog and loves jumping up on rocks, drinking the chilly water and smelling the fresh wilderness. Okay, let’s check out some photos.

Daphne is a trooper and this suspension bridge wasn’t an easy feat, yet she tracked it like a champ. Low and slow was her motto on the bridge crossing.

The bridge is long and shaky, but easy compared to some of the West Coast Trail bridges we’ve done.

We made it to the falls! Great lookout points and it’s only about 3 km to the first lookout. We suggest going early in the morning since it’s not so busy and you’ll get to take in all the peacefulness nature has to offer.

The falls don’t offer the only view, either. Check out these photos!

We had such a wonderful time. The path is fairly wide, too, so it’s great for conversation and for Daphne. We hiked about 6.5 km in and enjoyed the dried up gorge a bit. Daphne sure is a mountain dog!
