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.
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.
Fantastic hike. I've done this one numerous times with kids and dogs. Be sure to climb up past the first falls to see the falls higher up.
Nice short family walk! Loved the falls at the end.
The main falls are beautiful but if you can walk up past the first falls it gets way better ! Brought two tiny dogs on the trail and they loved it.
A nice trail. Definitely an easy trail and great for kids and pets. There is an outlook as well if you find the troll falls path not hard enough. Overall not too shabby.
Super easy, even in the rain that caught me about 1/3 in. The falls would have been far more enjoyable without someone deciding the rocks needed to be rearranged so he could sit under them.
Easy trail with the family.
