Sulfur Gates

One of the most popular attractions to the Grande Cache area, Sulphur Gates is an impressive cliff edged confluence of two rivers: The Smoky and the Sulphur. Dramatic rock formations adorn this site and define the two rivers in stark contrast. There is a short trail taking one around all the viewpoint platforms along the cliffs. Please stay behind the protective guardrails and wear good footwear, as some areas can get slippery.

As well as great views, Sulphur Gates is a staging area for equestrian users and backpackers going into Willmore Wilderness Park. There is also a small campground, picnic and horse staging area.
