Silverton Falls

Banff National Park, October 18, 2015, a 0.7km hike just off Highway 1A. I was here with my brother-in-law and my nephew. We rode here from Airdrie on motorcycles.

This is the path from the parking lot. Parks Canada does a great job.

The trail forks. The hike to the lake is close to eight kilometres. 

Of course the route we took quickly changed.

The trail is easy however there is a lot of fallen trees to duck under and climb over. We found out there is another path that goes to the top. A trip for another time.

The trail is more fun this way.

This is not a big falls. The walk is worth it. It is hard to capture due to the thick forestation and the very sharp narrow and steep chasm. You practically cannot see the falls until you are right at the base because there are so many trees blocking the view. 

You can get a hint of the narrow rock that the falls cuts through. I hopped across on some rocks to get to the other side to try and get some better shots. Great stuff. 


  1. It's a beautiful waterfall - well worth the walk and a great way to spend the day!
