    Jura Creek Trail is a scenic route near the town of Canmore. It features a 150 m-200 m long slot canyon and options for a longer trip. It sees much less traffic than nearby Grotto and Cougar Canyons, making it a fine choice, especially on a weekend. The trail is quite rocky with rolling elevation gain, making it a great beginner to intermediate route.
