  • We went the other day with my young son. Very scenic and accessible. It was a little icy in parts but that's to be expected in winter. About half way between Calgary and Cochrane so not a long drive. ...  more »
  • This hike is great for almost everyone.(mobility issues would make this hike non-doable) There are water falls, and the trail is fairly even. The larches are absolutely beautiful with the sun on them....  more »
  • It’s been like ages, each time I promise myself I’ll explore this park it did not happen. The kids were never keen when they were of the age when strapped in, there was a discussion as to where we wer...  more »

  • This place is truly a gem! Tucked away in the scenic foothills northwest of Calgary you will find this lovely retreat from the city. As the name implies the park is located between a couple of large hills with a spring-fed creek roughly bisecting the park. There are a number of decent sized waterfalls and and abundance of trees and small plants. Come in the early summer when the water is at its highest flow.
  • A great place to see beautiful water falls and Central Alberta scenery. There are all kinds of nooks and crannies in the park to have a family picnic, and for those with the energy, you can climb to the top and see the various water falls along the way Go in the winter, and on a week/day! You will have the place to yourself, and enjoy the waterfalls and the ice & snow!
  • Amazing places to let your dog be a dog in its natural environment! Easy hike, beautiful scenery and very quiet. Would definitely be back!
  • BEAUTIFUL! and best part is its free. A very beautiful park. I love the walking trails, so many things to look at. BRING A CAMERA. A excellent day out with the family!
  • Awesome place. Multiple small Waterfalls along a maintained, slightly steep trail. Good workout for walking, take the dogs, taking photos and also out houses. Water is always a lil chilly even when it's warm out. Flows all year round.
