The trail to Johnston Canyon Falls has to be the busiest in the Canadian Rockies. Nearly every day throughout the summer, hundreds of hikers follow its canyon-clinging catwalks and cliff-mounting staircases to the gorge's Lower and Upper Falls. While the canyon is certainly worthy of a visit, you will have to do the hike in the evening or very early in the morning to avoid the crowd.

Lower Falls is about 1.1Km and Upper Falls is 2.7Km from the Lodge. The farther you go on the trail the more the crowds will thin out. One will quickly notice that the majority of people will not venture past the Lower Falls.


 

We left home early to beat the crowd at Johnston Canyon (or at least hoping that way!). However when we were approaching the Canyon, signs were already posted that parking lots were all already full. So we thought of just continuing our drive all the way to the Lodge and was surprised to find out that they were now offering paid parking at their lots. No wonder the lots were almost empty! This gotta be our lucky day! I'd rather pay the fee and be at the comfort of proximity - and we also found out it is fully refunded if we ever decide to dine in in their restaurant! And why not!
