Lovely little trail to take with dog and husband. Extra loop north of the bridge on the East side was worth the diversion!

loved this walk

Wow the views were amazing! Not too hard of a hike. We were a little confused at first where the trail started but once we figured it out it was great!

The trail is very washed out and not worn in at all . We were the only ones on it and it was a bit creepy as there is no defined path.
To access it you will see a bridge with the Terish. Creek, park there then walk along the road in the ditch until you see a sign on the left and that is the trail head.

This was a great little hike not super hard but it is a great way to start the day and get your heart rate up. Due to other reviews we were happy to find the start of the trail at the two large rocks to the right of the parking lot. The trail is marked by orange ribbons along the way which was nice. This app shows fellow hikers and there locations on a decently populated trail. The falls are beautiful.

Pretty hike - the steep view down to the river is intimidating in places. Better to start at the viewpoint and go to the falls.

An easy walk around the lake. the loop takes you through a number of boreal ecosites, including a portion of boardwalk through a wetland. our kids, 4 and 6, spent time exploring the different plants and trees found along the loop.

Great little Falls to go see. Best on a warm day as you can play in the falls and the creek. Your feet will get wet for sure.

Parts of the original trail have been washed out. If you are following the David Thompson Hiking Guide it does differ quite a bit from that now, but if you follow the creek up you will find the falls.

Great little hike!! Easy to follow for the most part.... lost it a couple times on the way back but found it easily enough.... would definitely do it again!!

Start of trail was kinda deceiving.... didn’t realize you had to walk down the ditch to the trail head.... trail was kinda hard to follow in places but once you seen the flags it was ok.... would definitely do it again though.....the falls were nice!!!

Very easy trail, good run in the morning.

Breathtaking falls on a relatively easy trail.

Fantastic view. There is no clear direction from the welcome sign, just keep driving and passing a large parking and washroom.

The hiking trail is unmarked and on the left hand side from the viewpoint.

We found the trail difficult to follow. Thankfully someone was nice enough to mark the trail with ribbon in a few places. Ended up getting stuck in a surprise thunderstorm including hail and a downpour. Im sure we will try it again as I like taking the hikes less travelled. Make sure you check the weather before the hike, while you still have cell service :)

easy hike as long as you stay on the main trail.

Great little trail, lots of variety between forest and open areas, helped to cool down on a hot day! Used this as a training trail for my 5 month old puppy’s first hike, perfect trail! Variety, obstacles beautiful views and an easy morning or afternoon hike. Also did this hike before when I was still rehabilitating by knee from an injury, not too drastic of a slope if you stick to the trail!

After tuning off the main highway to head to Crescent Falls you park at the first look out on your left. The trail is marked by 2 big rocks to your right. The Crescent Falls part of the hike was alright for a 40+ overweight first timer. If you’re afraid of high places the first part of the hike is testing. Got my heart rate way up just from that. I did not see much of the scenery due to looking directly down as to not trip and go over the edge. Trail is not marked so I was happy we were able to find it.

Planned on continuing to the Big Horn hike at the falls but was unable to find the trail head, walked through the camp ground and there was no markers for it. Even asked some people and no one was clear to where it was. Walked along the river and thought I saw a trail on the other side but I was not going to wade across the rapids to be wrong.

I will go back camping there at some point up by the falls because you can drive right in and then the search will continue for the big horn loop trail.

The falls are really nice to look at.

Nice trail for a walk/family friendly hike. Took 3 kiddos 1.5/3/8, and a dog. Lots of sloppy muddy spots today.

Great easy hike, was able to bring my 50 odd year old mother, great views, relaxed hike, quite populated however, and if you’re not willing to cross the stream in your car or truck near the river, then use the parking lots. Don’t clog up the road trying to turn around.

Conservation officers were out in full force the day I was there.

True, the trail is washed out in multiple places, BUT you are following a river upstream - like Dory, just keep swimmi... well, hiking.
About 1 km in, there are several trees across the creek so you can cross quite easily with support. The canyon where the falls are located is beautiful. Not too many people venture up this trail so you’ll likely be all alone on your trek.

Really relaxed hike, the scenery is quite spectacular overlooking the canyon and the waterfall at the end is amazing. There is a rope you can use near the end of the trail that takes you down to the waterfall, it's kind of hidden off a second path.

This is a nice easy walk with great scenic lookouts. We got there somewhat early (around 9am) and it was pretty quiet and thankfully we did. It was pretty busy when we left.

It seems like most people drive to the falls and just look around there. We hiked the trail that is along the gorge down river from the falls.

We started at the falls and hiked to the lookout that you pass on your way in and then back around again. This was about 2.5 hours but we stopped to enjoy the views and for an early lunch.

It is an easy hike but definitely bring a leash for your dogs as it's a long, steep drop into the river below.

The trial is unmarked, that's the reason for the 3 stars. Otherwise the falls are beautiful.

Wonderful hike for the kids!!

Was a nice easy hike that was good to bring dogs on however the cliffs are steep and close to the paths so I kept my pup on a leash most of the time. Nice view :)

You can see 2 falls at the same time cascading... 10-15 mins hike to the second level of the hike... great place for the family as there is a park to picnic.

Excellent, easy hike for kids. Lots of people on may long weekend. But always a beautiful spot to hang out.

The trailhead begins at the creek north of the highway bridge. The trail was tough to find at first, and is quite washed out, but there are red and orange flags tied to trees (and deadfall) to help guide the way. The falls are small but are quite pretty, and it is a peaceful hike. Would do again and I enjoyed it.

Nice easy hike with pretty views

An easy hike and fun hike to do to get out and hike during the winter months!
