This attraction is on the road to the Emerald Lake Lodge - well worth stopping and will not take you long to appreciate the power of the Kicking Horse River.

This river flows alongside the Trans-Canada highway as the road passes through the Field area. We took the road to the Takakkow Falls but only got to the point where the Kicking Horse River meets the Yoho River. The confluence of the two rivers is impressive and well worth a visit. Unfortunately, the road was closed at this point so we were unable to reach Takakkow.

Follow this river down to the Natural Bridge where it falls between a narrow gap in the rocks. There is a few places where you can pull over for photos etc. You may even be lucky enough to see some black bears!

This is a stop on the tour bus hoards drive to/from Lake Louise. Don’t let that put you off though because it is a spectacle well worth seeing, especially in the spring with the snow melt. Just don’t get too upset with them spoiling your isolated out in the wilderness photograph. And don’t be too concerned about the danger that they put themselves dancing around on the rocks, I’m sure one or two of them won’t be missed.
