The same thing happened to my friend and me last summer. This trail was supposed to be a loop, but loop we did not. There were no signs and the markers were confusing. Because of this, we kept following what we thought were our markers and ended up on a power line trail. We hiked for quite some time under the hot blistering sun, with zero idea of where we were. Finally reached a road and were able to eventually catch a ride back to Fish Lake.

Excellent short hike. Good for beginners.

Took my kids (7, 5, and 2). Had a stroller and the big kids on bikes. We didn’t do the 10km loop because I wasn’t sure how they would do for that distance, so we did a bunch of smaller loops and it was beautiful and great for the kids. It was just hard enough for them getting their bikes up all the little hills.

Rated as moderated but would definitely say it’s “easy”. Done this a couple times, and both times were fairly busy with horses and ATV’s. It’s an easy trail walk into the lake. Good to do with kids or the family!

Trail to the falls is closed due to wild fire. :( you cant even cross the suspension bridge. So check trail report first before you head there.

A bit busy to the first set but that's where most families stop. The views are amazing! Well worth some difficult areas on the way to the 2nd and 3rd sets of falls.

Good and easy trail. I saw more people riding bikes than walking, so it’s a good trail for both activities. Mostly flat and good shadows to help with the heat. Some nice views of the lake midway through the trail

it is fun easy and a nice walk for the dogs, great for kids

Great easy hike in to first falls about 4 km. Apparent second falls is very small, and mixed information on third falls. Some on here suggested to go see it. On the trail, another couple said they couldn't find it. The front desk at our resort said it was an overnight hike. We turned back at about 5 or 6 km. The river is beautiful. Best hike of the week for my wife and I.

Did with my mother and family. It was a nice walk, but I think it'd be a much better biking trail while camping at the lake.

Fairly easy hike, beautiful clear lake. Is pretty muddy after rain for a while, lots of horse tours through.

A must do hike when travelling along the David Thompson. There is one incline of note other than that, the trail is mostly flat. It’s a great hike for people of all ages. It is a busy trail so you’ll likely run into others. The trek to the 2nd and 3rd falls is much quieter and more serene... worth it.

A great trail to start on, fairly flat with slight inclines. A few areas were washed out, and finding the trail again was a bit tricky but manageable. The trail to the first set fall was quite busy and trickled off a bit going further. Would recommend going to the third fall.

The trail is very well marked. There is some nice wildlife there, but the scenery is not very captivating. Although the smell of the forest is captivating.

The trail is pretty rocky part of it is in a dry creek bed, but a nice walk all in all. Eagle Lake is beautiful and just beyond it is James Falls a nice small waterfall that’s worth the extra little walk

Great for walking, running or biking... Flat and scenic.

While it isn’t exactly a hike, as it’s mostly flat all the way, it’s a beautiful walk through the forest. I loved the views of the lake, and the KM signs along the way to show your progress. It wasn’t overly busy either, but that could just be because it was kinda downcast and rainy today.

Amazing view of the canyon! It is something that I could look at all day long. It never gets old.

Just beautiful!! The roar of the river and rushing water really humble a guy. Not too long of a hike and just a ways up from falls found a nice lil beach along the river to cool the feet while we had lunch :))

This was my first hike. The majority of it was great as a beginner, but the last 2km or so were quite the incline. Well defined paths and some great scenery.

Great hike, not much to see on the way up, the trees are fairly tall, but the end is amazing.

Nice path with gravel where needed. Mostly through the forest but passes Twin Lakes and crosses a small stream. Well maintained for bikes and hiking. This trail goes to Rocky Mountain House also.

Was a good stroll, pretty flat, might take the bike next time. Found a couple places to get the feet wet in the lake.

Nice lil stroll

My brother and I did this as our first backpacking hike on June 22nd 2018. We were over packed and inexperienced. The views were worth the extreme difficulty LOL. Some of the inclines feel like walking up a 45 degree angle when you get close to the top. Not for the faint of heart. Would not suggest as a first time adventure. We did have this trail all to ourselves though.

Flat but a nice walk around the lake

Great hike for us beginners!! Amazing views and scenery. Very well marked trails. And we were very pleasantly surprised at how few people there were.

Trails not clearly marked. We got lost and ended up on the forestry road. Luckily someone pick us up and took us to our car.

Stunning views! I was surprised at how few people were on the trail, but certainly not complaining :)
