The Red Rock Parkway in Waterton Lakes National Park was closed early this season (Sept 8), which cuts off access to several popular hikes in the park’s northwest sector. The closure will facilitate major reconstruction of the roadway, the lower parking lot at Red Rock Canyon, and viewing platforms at Blakiston Falls. Access to the following trails will be affected. (All trail numbers referenced to the Canadian Rockies Trail Guide):

191—Tamarack Trail (north trailhead)

192—Crandell Lake (Crandell Campground trailhead)

193—Blakiston Falls

194—Goat Lake

195—Snowshoe-Blakiston Creek Loop (Twin Lakes and all branch trails)
