Ice Walk: Grotto Canyon, East of Canmore

Grotto Canyon. Photo by Discover Banff Tours

The deeper you travel into the gorge, the higher the cliffs rise around you. Watch for First Nations rock paintings, “but they’re hard to find if you don’t know where to look,” notes icewalk guide Daymon Miller. Easier to spot are icefalls that rise to 28 m (90 ft) where climbers often maneuver high above. From Grotto Pond parking lot, Hwy 1A near Exshaw east of Canmore , walk west past the Baymag magnesium plant and north along the creek bed (bring ski poles and, ideally, ice cleats).—Jack Wennot
