  • The ride is bumpy gravel road with a caravan. The subsequent hike is also very simple and not particularly exciting. But for something more than an hour you can hear the ROAR that slowly closer. And then suddenly you stand above them, the mouth open stopped us. Simply just grandiose and impressive and we did not expect so even that. You can go even on the river and see the waterfalls from below with the mountains behind it. Simply just amazing. We have the walk with our baby carrier was made, no problem. Stroller is not recommended.

  • Trail not as developed as other trails. But falls view is worth out. Very easy to miss driving from the Alberta side.
  • 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 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.
  • Great place for all ages to go on a hike and see an amazing waterfall
