very lovely wooded trail with a much larger trail network attached to it. multiple camp sites and day use areas and the water was still warm enough for a swim in Kelly's bathtub.

Do not go out of your way to go here, as nice as the falls are, the viewpoint is not ideal. Maybe stop if you are passing by anyway but that’s it

We saw three beavers at 6:30 pm ish. Wonderful!

Solomon Creek is in flood again for the second time this year. Water is high and trail is under water at the trail head. I have not been able to rebuild the bridge yet. Access could by mountain bike across the Brule pasture to the lower bench if you know the route. No signage for that.

Great hike. Sketchy scramble to reach the summit.

Middle aged out of shape smoker here, went slow, but faster then those who don't try, room to stand off trail for a breather. Wear Proper shoes, bring walking sticks lots of water. Hike goes in and out of the trees, lots of beautiful views even with that. Well worth the grueling 3kish at the start!

This trail gives you a butt-kicking during the first 2-3 km, and then again once you ascend the summit. The difficult rating is accurate! I rated this hike as 3 stars because so much of the trail goes through the trees, especially as you work your way towards the summit. Might be a bit boring in parts for some although the eventual views are worth the effort. As long as you are prepared to work and don’t mind not having views the whole way then it may be one you’d like to consider!

Solid hike and rated difficult is accurate. The first 4kms you gain 400m. You will be breaking a sweat minutes into the hike. It smoothes off after a while and the climb becomes less a slog until the end where it becomes a good hike up. The scramble is like any other. Loose footing and steep with no dedicated trail. It’s not Mountaineering grade just don’t do it with flip flops. Views at the top are amazing. Make sure you visit the brewery after for the free beer if you take a selfie at the top. Bears are present but not seen at least in my case

Sept 6 2019 - OVERGROWN Trail parking lot is easy to spot off the road. The lookout is covered by a fallen tree. Unless you feel like scrambling down and up a 80 degree mud slide, you can only see the falls from the top of the bridge. Great place to soak your feet in freezing water after a local hike such a Hidden Valley or Sulpher.

Very good hike! Very steep at the start for about 2-3km. Trail plateaued after until the final scramble to the summit. Final scramble a bit dangerous - should be an experienced hiker/scrambler and have proper gear (good hiking shoes and poles). Lots of bear scat on the trail, but saw no bears hiking with a group of 6. Views up top are amazing, and the free beer after at the brewery was worth it! Took about 6.5 hours to complete.

Very steep, my Apple Watch logged it as 9.5 km to the top and the steep section at the beginning lasted for 3.5 km. I had the trail to myself, watched for bear activity but didn’t see any (still shouted myself hoarse). Beautiful views from the top so worth it!

Really great little trail to Punchbowl falls

Trail is in great shape, pretty good calf burner for first 2km with a short steep scramble to the summit. Enough to push me a bit out of my comfort zone. It’s worth the effort, amazing views on the summit.

Great hike! Started with my 10 year old son at 8.30, back at 15.00. Considered skipping the last scramble to the peak, but could not resist in the end. First hike where my son clearly outperformed me. The free beer at the FM Brewing was delicious!

Beautiful views for not a lot of effort.

A couple steep sections but otherwise a nice easy, scenic trail.

trail starts off paved then turns into a steep path no matter what way you go. so for little ones this could be hard. a few interesting things along the lower loops like the "vault" and some old foundations hidden in the trees and a coal car at the lookout. (upper loop)

The hike is easy and the wooden pontoons are well maintained. Several accesses are closed because they are considered insufficiently secure. Unfortunately, we did not encounter a single beaver. We were advised a hike in the morning but we may not have arrived early enough (9am while the sun had risen at 5:30).

very steep climb first solid 2km, so be aware. it does plateau out after as others mentioned until the last scramble. watch out at the scramble, you can end up not quite on the right trail downwards, and there is very loose steep sections if you get off course a bit. not muddy when we went, nor were bugs bad. lots of fresh bear activity right on the trail, so be prepared. took us about 6.5 hours, with a nice summit lunch. saw a mountain goat!

The first 6 kilometres of this trail have steep climbs but are very well maintained. After the 7 km mark the trail is largely unmaintained with over 250 trees to go above under or around till just after the 16k mark. At the 16 km mark we had recorded going 25 km to get around everything. Nice views, well marked trail. Definitely not for the faint of heart. You need a lot of will power to get through this trail.

great hike. short and sweet it. was pretty steep for a little and would have been slick if it was wet. beautiful view at the top.

Great evening hike for me and my husband. it was a steep incline for a little but great footing. I could see if it was rainy it could be a little slippery. good for all ages
