Did this about a month ago, it’s a fun hike! It is steep in some areas and there is a bit of loose shale the entire hike so do be careful. I didn’t get far enough to see the caves unfortunately. The trail head is a little bit confusing so when you park and see the creek to your left, you can follow the creek up or just to the right of it is the actual trail. The views are amazing. Also I brought my dog with me and she managed just fine. Had to lift her onto a couple of bigger rocks to keep going but nothing to scary for her. Took about 3 1/2 hours to do (including stopping for a snack) Give it a try!

Excellent short hike. Good for beginners.

If Vision Quest down the road is rated as 'Hard', this would be considered extreme for new climbers. The trail was either washed out or non existent, but the goat/sheep trails were spectacular! It was a steep incline the whole way up with 70% or more scrambling....and we wouldn't have had it any other way. Such a blast with extremely beautiful views to top it off. Don't turn back, it's worth it!!!

Amazing views the whole way up to the geocache, but it's definitely worth it to go the rest of the scramble to the summit. Trails were well used and visible with lots of other hikers.

Decent hike with some scrambling and a little bit of climbing. Proper footwear is a must, poles and gloves to protect your hands are a good idea. The trail isn’t well marked but you can basically take any way up that suits your level. Try to stay to the left towards the top to make it to the peak. After you park on the lake side of the highway in the large parking lot, you cross the road and can see the trailhead easily.

closer to 21km each way then 17km. A group of three of us did it in 7hours going in then 6hours on the way out over 2 days. Would not rate this as hard, if anything it's an easy hike. After the second bridge crossing there is a fairly steep hill and then after the stream crossing there is another slightly larger and steeper hill however neither are extremely challenging. There arent many campsites at the lake so if you're planning on going during a long weekend make sure you go out very early. fishing is decent but dont expect any trophy fish.

Great hike, incredible views! Very steep, would recommend hiking shoes.

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.

Nice easy trail with some fun creek drainage bouldering toward the top. Left trailhead at 9:45am and our group was the 2nd group up. Great little scramble to the enormous and cool cave at top. By the time we finished lunch and we’re headed down, the trail was packed with hikers. (Stopped counting after 70). Good views, but take a flashlight for the cave.

Pretty casual hiking up to the hoodoos, from there you could continue up the creek to the cave. We decided to ascend the slope to the south, there’s a bit of a trail to start and then you’ll have to scramble up some shale but when make it to the top of the ridge the view is incredible.

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.

Very easy trail, good run in the morning.

This hike is very challenging. We made it in 2 days and it definitely felt longer than what this app says. Lot’s of up and down, creek crossings and uneven ground. We took our 6 year old and 10 year and they both did awesome but I would not recommend it!! Camping was amazing, views were amazing, and fishing was awesome! Loved it there. My only recommendation is good footwear and pack light! Definitely worth the reward of reaching the Lake!! Oh, and crossing the creek in bare feet was a breeze, even our 6 year old had no issues.

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

Good hike up to the canyon. We got turned around because of a storm that rolled in on us, so we didn't get to explore and enjoy the canyon or the apparent falls below. Walked out drenched with lightning over our heads, but it was exciting all the same.

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.

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

Went on this hike with my sister, there was some bushwhacking involved. We were aiming for Coral Ridge not the canyon, but the ridge hike isn’t on this app. Got turned around for about 90 mins but spotted some piles of dog poop in the deep bush which reenergized our motivation and we didn’t stop till we got to the top of that ridge. You can see Abraham Lake, David Thompson Highway and more from up there. The view was stunning, and once you reach the ridge, you can follow it all the way up to the mountain peak. We were finding fossils at the top of the ridge, as well spotted a huge gorgeous golden owl on the way up. Pack snacks and plan for an extra couple hours, as it’s easy to get turned around. Path is becoming overgrown, but you can see it if you take your time and keep your eyes open. We went off a hiking book published in the late 90s, so some things had changed since then. This one is much more difficult than the Allstones Lake hike, and is only 20-30km west of Allstones on the David Thompson Highway west of Nordegg, AB.

Hadn’t been hiking or physically worked out in years. Then about 4 years ago my sister told me she was going on this hike. I figured it was the perfect way to test myself, so I went with her. I don’t know how they come up with their difficulty ratings, but this hike was far from hard. A couple steep shale inclines is the hardest it gets. Got back tired but far from sore. Left my keys up there accidentally when we went swimming, so the next day we did it again to retrieve them. For an out of shape desk jockey like myself (at the time), I was pleasantly surprised at how well my body handled it twice in two days. I was immediately looking for a harder one. Great hike for rookies, people that may be a bit out of shape or for people looking for a casual hike with a bit of altitude. But AllTrails rates this hike as hard. I’m hoping the first hard one I pick from this app is actually hard and doesn’t disappoint.

This is a hike everyone should see. The view at the top is amazing. It's a short hike but a great view of the valley below. The hike is good for all levels. The only downfall was that horses can also use the trail and it's very obvious.

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.

Love Allstones. It’s a tough hike up and down (knees). Just when you think the trail should level out, it keeps climbing. When you start descending to the lake, the water looks so welcoming, and it is.... if you like polar dips. Only the bravest go all the way in and under.

An amazing, well marked hike! Worth the grind and beautiful views the entire time. I will do this one again!

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.

Challenging trail but beautiful and scenic. Definitely want to do this one again and next time make it to the cave.

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

Did this as a evening/sunset summit. So much fun with varying degrees of scramble - and first time ever coming down a mountain in the dark with headlamps - loved it. Would definitely do this again!

Nice trail, short but worth it especially looking back at the majestic view of Abraham Lake. Lots of loose rocks making it a slower pace.

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 :))
