This is a great hike, a touch more difficult than "easy". Ourv5yr old boys loved it, though they were pretty tired by the end! Wear water proof shoes or sandals! It takes a good 1.5km to get to the fun water stuff. There is still snow/ice in some areas, but use caution as some areas look thick enough to stand on, but have been washed away quite thin underneath. Gorgeous views!!

Steep and short well trafficed hike with spectacular view of Waterton townsite. I personally climbed a bit higher for an even better view.

Short but the view was worth it. Gets very busy and crowded during the summer months... it is a very popular spot.

One of the best hike so far .. start early to be on summit by 2 to 3 pm. Follow defined path of alpine signs. Amazing view from top, worth to spend energy and effort!

Did it on May 22nd.
Nice trail, took me 2hrs to top and return with a moderate pace, starts with a easy flat walk on a gravel road for 20mins approximately, then diverts to a footpath incline all the way to the top.
View at the top is beautiful.

Amazing view for a short steep hike. Only negative thing about it is the number of people on it. Could be a good stepping stone for longer hikes.

Great hike, busy trail, conditions were great.

Nice walk in the park. HEAVILY trafficked (people and dogs). Lots of families, definitely an easy hike that could be done with kids. Waterfall isn't really anything spectacular but the stream running through the trail is pretty. If you want a nice view, cross the river at the end of the trail and continue on up the side of the mountain (trail is clearly visible to the left of the 'waterfall'). Hang a right at the top and you will have a gorgeous view of the river valley below. Note: trail up the mountain is a bit of a scramble. Wouldn't do this one again but it's a nice stop off the highway or you're looking for a quick little hike!!
