What is Canyoning?

Explore areas you thought were inaccessible

Imagine yourself a feather floating along a stream that descends into a deep cleft in the mountain, following the watercourse as it carves out the rock through centuries of dedicated action. Now envision yourself attached to a rope moving along that waterfall in a controlled descent taking in the stunning beauty that the water has carved from the rock. Canyoning is the art of descending steep walled gorges and deep mountain valleys using ropes to control your movements. Canyoning includes jumping, walking, scrambling, sliding, wading and many other means to travel through this unique and spectacular part of our world.

Ogre Canyon

can03Ogre Canyon is tucked into a small sliver of land between the first range of the Rockies and Brule Lake. The canyon is a deeply carved cleft in the mountainside. At the base of the canyon are many sinkholes. These sinkholes are created by underground streams and a remaining active stream that dried up or changed direction. Vegetation has changed the topography of the land.
Ogre Canyon is a very beautiful and unique area to explore. Four-wheel drive vehicles are highly recommended therefore all transportation to and from Jasper is provided.

Location: Ogre Canyon is located close to the small community of Brule just to the west of Hinton. Follow Highway 16 west from Hinton for 2 kilometres to Highway 40 North. Go 5 kilometres to the Brule left turnoff (watch for sign stating Brule), and travel 14 kilometres to Brule. Go straight through on Main Street, traveling through the horse lease in order to reach the parking area. Road conditions vary with weather conditions. Please leave gates as found.
