  • Very fun, beautiful site. A bit of a hike (45min) of typical rockies forest to get to the site, but impressive falls with fun islands to explore downstream. Make sure you get into the spray on the first.
  • Well worth a visit! Only a small 30min walk to get to the waterfall.
  • Trail not as developed as other trails. But falls view is worth out. Very easy to miss driving from the Alberta side.
  • Well maintained trail. Trail is a bit on the short side though, but the falls definitely makes up for it. Also a couple of good vantage points along the way to see the surrounding mountains just off the trail.
  • A nice relatively short and level hike, until you get to the Falls, where you can walk down to the bottom and enjoy the view from below. Well worth the trip especially during times of high water.
