Spray Falls

DSC01615Located near Dead Man Flats,  Spray Falls are two falls (upper and lower) resting within a small gorge just west of the George Biggy Sr.  road.  The falls are at the end of a short trail through pine forest, leading a small incline from the road.  These falls are fairly unvisited, I doubt you will see anyone while visiting them.  If the water wasn’t so cold, it’d be a great swimming spot in the pools below the falls.  Trails also follow up and downstream from the falls and are ripe for exploring.    Follow the George Biggy Sr. Road to its end and you’ll find yourself at another mountain resort.  Nearby is a trailsystem leading into Kananaskis Provincial park along Pigeon Creek (this would be a day-long adventure).

To get to the falls from Calgary, take the Dead Man’s Flat exit, a few kilometres short of Canmore.  Take the southmost road across the highway, then join up with the George Biggy Sr. Road.  Exactly one kilometre up the hill (past the quarry), will lead you to an unmarked trailhead on the left.  Park here and venture not 5 minutes down the sloped trail to the falls.  Basically, follow the sound.  It’s a perfect quiet trip to a great set of waterfalls.
