From HWY 1 at HWY 40, go left and head south on HWY 40. Proceed for 25 km on the 40 and turn right at the Kananaskis Village Turnoff. Drive straight and take the first right turnoff which is a gravel road to the Stoney Trail Day Use Area.
Quick easy hike, good for all ages and capabilities. More of a walk through the woods than a true hike, but enjoyable none the less.
Such a great hike! I highly suggest having some cleates/spikes for your boots if you plan to go to the upper falls! Amazing views!
Good little hike for a short outing, easy maintained trails but if you want to hike on more difficult trails they can be found there too, easy to find, and overall a decent outing.
Great little hike, and the Falls are beautiful! There was a "Hidden Troll Stroll" game with multiple troll dolls hidden along the trail.
Snowshoes no - Yak Trax is all you'll need.
We were going to snowshoe but there was barely any snow so we walked in. Nothing special but the frozen tongue of the falls was a mice pay off. Snowshoes are not needed unless you are exploring more.
Was my first time going to Troll Falls and it was very beautiful! It was a nice relaxing/easy hike to the fall. It was frozen but you could still see the water underneath still running!!
We've been out to the falls several times this year, including last weekend. It's a great long walk/short hike, suitable for kids. Now completely frozen, the falls a always a beautiful site. But watch your step around the falls as it is quite slippery.
This well-traveled trail is more of a long walk than a hike. It was not at all busy. We got a kick out of the Trolls we spotted along the way. Apparently there are 5, but we only spotted 2. Very pretty hike, and the falls are lovely. The Whiskey Jacks were eager to fly down and share in our trail mix, and I literally had them eating out of my hand. My little, older Cavalier had a great time and didn't find it too hard. Unfortunately, he did start limping after the first falls, so we didn't get the chance to go further to see the other falls. We intend to go back so we can see all the falls, and maybe spot some more trolls.
