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.
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.
This is more of a leisurely walk then a hike but it was still really pretty - it would be great for snowshoeing
Amazing hike! Short and sweet with beautiful waterfalls at the end. The main trail brings you to one waterfall but if you keep hiking off the trail and up to the right you can find two more beautiful waterfalls. Very kid and pet friendly.
Went with a few friends on a sunny Sunday, absolutely amazing. Was a well traveled trail but not super busy. When we got to the first set of falls we were impressed, this part was easy enough to do with the whole family. We got chatting with another group of people and they encouraged us to cross the river and climb up because there were another 3 waterfalls. We did and it was well worth the steep climb!
easy for the elderly and very young. great scenery!
Great trial for young and old alike. The kids loved the falls.
Nice trail with pretty views. Good for all ages.
Amazing little jewel! Love to go back!
