The Sawback picnic area is located 18 kilometers west of Banff on the Bow Valley Parkway.
This area has scenic views of the mountains across the highway and is located close to the popular Johnston Canyon hiking trail and the Ink Pots. This is a great place to stop to eat either on the way to or from the trail.
There are picnic tables and outhouses available here for picnicking.
