Cameron River Falls Trail, Yellowknife

4.8
#1 of 8 in Parks in Yellowknife
Don your walking boots for a picturesque hike through Cameron River Falls Trail. Follow the well-marked trails to a picturesque waterfall, and cross a suspension bridge for panoramic views over the forest. Once at the lookout point, you will be treated to views of a 17 m (55 ft) waterfall, a river, and a canyon. Wildlife watchers should look out for bears, beavers, waterfowl, and muskrats. While the 1.2 km (0.7 mi) dirt path and lush forest walk does not pose an immense challenge for inexperienced walkers, those with young children in strollers may have a difficult time over some of the rocks. Make Cameron River Falls Trail a centerpiece of your Yellowknife vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Yellowknife holiday website .

Where to stay in Yellowknife

Accommodations in Yellowknife come in the form of small hotels, bed and breakfasts, and guesthouses scattered throughout the city. For the most interesting scenery, stay north of the center near the Bush Pilots Monument. If you choose to visit between November and March to chase the northern lights, make sure you stay well out of town for the best chance to see the spectacle without the intrusion of light pollution.
