Hiking Distance: 1.6km to Stanley Falls.
Hiking Time: Half an hour each way.

Finding the Beauty Creek to Stanley Falls Trailhead

Driving from Jasper, Alberta, follow the Icefields Parkway south of the city for about 86 km. The gate can be difficult to find, so look for two large culverts that go under the highway. From these water diversion dikes, the Stanley Falls trailhead is about 2 km south of the Beauty Creek Hostel.

Navigating Beauty Creek Through the Canadian Rockies

Once you manage to find the trailhead, follow the dike along the small creek east toward the old road, where you will turn right. This takes you to the larger origin of Beauty Creek where an old, collapsed bridge marks the location of a hiking trail that will take you up and to the left.

From here, follow the trail along the creek. Small waterfalls will start to dot the cliffs until the spectacle of Stanley Falls is finally reached at the end of the trail. Hikers can explore just beyond the waterfall as well, but the trail will eventually turn into an animal path.

Tips for Hiking in the Canadian Rockies

As with most hiking trails in the Canadian Rockies, Beauty Creek to Stanley Falls contains some natural features that may be dangerous. Hikers along this trail will be very close to waterfalls and should pay attention to their surroundings.
