Livingstone Falls


2 hours from south Calgary – A Great Day Trip To Livingston Falls Or A Weekend Of Camping

If it’s only a day trip, there is a gravel parking pad to accommodate a couple of cars while out on the short walk to the falls. However, if your up for the weekend getaway bring the tent or camper and spend a night or two.

Locating the falls is very easy for everyone in the family. It’s not wheelchair friendly, but there is a picnic table to enjoy the view of mountains and river. The bridge prior to the flood has been washed away, and it’s all up to you to explore the small area and find the last of the falls. Don’t worry about finding it, you can hear it before you see it.

DSC00399From south end of Calgary, you are looking around the 2 hour mark, most of which is a great view of wildlife and mountains. Directions from Calgary very too much, however your goal is to get to Longview, Alberta. From here you have 2 easy options!

Option 1 – Head west on HWY 40 (north end of Longview), until you get into the mountains, turn left onto HWY 940 (Gravel Road) and head south about 42 km. Locating the sign on your right. Trailer friendly route.

Option 2 – Follow HWY 22 south out of Longview, until you get to HWY 532 turn right and head west onto the gravel road. This path will take you over the “Hump” which is about 6,650 foot altitude at the top, and has a great view, however it’s highly NOT recommended to tow a trailer. HWY 532 is about 25km long, at the dead end is a quick left onto HWY40 aka Forestry Trunk Road. Head south 10 km, Livingston Falls is located on the west/right side.

Option 3 – From HWY 3 turn north onto HWY 40 and straight up 65 km to the the campground.
