Hike on steel walkways built into the canyon walls that give an airy view of the canyon below. Travel through prime wildlife habitat on your way to the trailhead and learn the clues to how Johnston Canyon was formed. Walk through a natural cave feature for a unique view of the lower falls. Gigantic pillars of ice are the highlight of the tour. Ice climbers can often be seen scaling the frozen columns. This popular walk will lead you past the lower falls and to the breathtaking upper icefalls.
