Siffleur Falls Alberta

Siffleur Falls can be reached by a 10km out-and-back hike from the edge of the North Saskatchewan River to, well, a waterfall. The hike has some steep sections and many rough spots with a danger of tripping over tree roots or protruding rock.

The canyon below the falls are impressive, as are all the canyons in this area of Alberta. All the pictures were taken as we climbed.

I'm not sure whether this is considered to be one of a series of falls or a plain ordinary set of rapids!

Finally we reached the falls themselves.

I’ve read that you can keep climbing to reach other waterfalls, but we didn’t see an obvious trail, so we turned around and headed back down.

    One for my list! Although your second sentence is slightly alarming – I am a specialist in tripping over tree roots and stones 😉

      So if you do this particular hike, Anabel, make sure you do it before you get tired. I was fine until the top by which my legs were a bit uncooperative.
