Easy hike, not well marked but you’ll manage. Views are amazing. On a long weekend I encountered heavy traffic. Some dogs are kept on leash (they should), some others are off. Few people on horses riding as well. It took me 1 hour to get to the top.

Trail to the first falls is well maintained. Falls are gorgeous. The trail to the second and third falls is narrower but simple to navigate. Just before the third falls the trail is completely washed away and to return to the path you have to go down and up a steep embankment.

Great hike. I take the slopes off to the right of the main trail. Much more enjoyable. Rated Hard but I find it a more Moderate hike. Lots of places to explore off trail.

A fun trail, we just hiked it yesterday (April 21), there was still a lot of snow.

Always love stopping in and exploring a little more. Dog liked it but would have enjoyed it more if he was off leash

My boyfriend, dog, and I really enjoyed this hike! I highly suggest keeping your dog on a leash and harness at ALL TIMES. There are marmots along the edge of the cliff just past the river that enjoyed taunting our dog and some areas where you are walking on the edge of a
100 ft+ cliff drop. This trail has very light traffic on the week days, be sure you have everything you need before starting your exploring.

Overall the trail was easy with a couple challenging steep areas with loose dirt and rock. Take mind on the way down: there are a couple points where the trail splits. We accidentally took a right where we should have gone left which led us down a very steep trail that at first looked well travelled, but came to an abrupt dead end. Keeping a steady pace with a few water/snack breaks, we completed the trail in 5.5 hours (including the time from back-tracking from heading down the wrong trail).

Highly recommend giving this hike a chance in the winter hikes as well! It was still easy and my pup loved it! It is gorgeous and it is peaceful! And who doesn’t love frozen Waterfalls?

One of our favorite lakes to go to. Did the small 2.5 km trail as there is a geo cache there we wanted to find. Great trails, was a few downed tree's but nothing that we couldn't get around.

Decent trail for a quick walk. It's nothing spectacular. The trail on the north side of the lake has a lot of roots but is still in decent shape.

The scenery was amazing and the trail easy to follow, the name says it all but worth the effort!

Easy hike, not stroller friendly at all. Beautiful views of the lake and the campground looks fantastic. Will do it again.

Great easy hike for the family. Well worth going past the first falls, the views are almost better.

We did this hike last spring in late March. We didn't have any trouble finding the trail, you pretty much just go straight up the creek bed. There's a few spots where the trail has been eroded away, so just go up the creek. Pretty simple. The cave is on your right up a big scree slope, a fair ways past the hoodoos.

Definitely pushed me outside my comfort zone at times but incredibly worth it!

Loved this hike! A little treacherous getting up to cave but well worth it.

Long but easy hike. Nice scenery the whole way. Good trail that gets a bit tighter after the canyon but rewarding the further you go (in my opinion).

nice easy after dinner walk, lots of birds, and a nice board walk at the north end. Relaxing, and even saw a moose! Campground is nice too, stalked rainbows, very small, great for the kiddies!

Gorgeous hike but definitely not an easy one! Steep climb all the way up and can be quite slippery on the way down because of the loose rocks.
Except that, the view all the way up and once at the top is amazing!

on Siffleur Falls

Gorgeous and easy walk to first falls! To get to second and then finally third waterfalls (smaller) the path gets very narrow and a few steep up and downs. There were some older and younger people having trouble here. It is very long in between first and third falls. The walk high above river and canyons is gorgeous past the first falls! I would say the second and third falls are not totally worth it if you are travelling with children, just walk past first falls for sure a bit and look at river and deep canyons and then head back.

We did this hike with our three children ages 9 and 6. We found it very easy, with very few elevations, it was just long. The falls at the end were beautiful.

Very picturesque. Great way to spend the day. Very busy up too the first "falls". (In my opinion it's just a rapid not a waterfall... but pretty nonetheless). Nice hike along the river.

Very good hike with many scenic points(especially off the beaten trail). Definitely worth while to check out the other two falls. Do not just stop at the first

on Tuff Puff

Took the Tuff Puff hike up to the top then worked are way down to Kinglette Lake and down to the beginning of the trail. The hike up you will reach a fork in the trail the one on the right with rocks spelling TUFF will take you to the top the trail on left to the lake. The trail was amazing (lots of eye candy) and was mostly in the open. Would recommend enjoyed it!

Well kept trail with some nice views. We had a great afternoon!! Wouldn't recommend with small children.

Spectacular views of the water falls and valley, don't forget your camera. Very busy get there early to get a spot in the parking lot, also there is no sign on the highway that says this is the falls so be ready to turn off as soon as you see the parking lot.

great hike. easy path. the second and third falls are worth the extra 30 minutes.

A good hike. A lot of beautiful country up there and we didn't make the falls due to the three year old powering out :). Will try again.
