The 15-km (9-mile) route takes you from the prairie up the Blakiston Valley to Red Rock Canyon, where water has cut through the earth, exposing red sedimentary rock. Watch for wildlife—it's common to see bears just off the road—especially in the autumn months when the berries are ripe. Parks Canada offers a free shuttle service to Red Rock Canyon. Check at the information center for departure and return times.
