A good hike, gorgeous view of the valley and Vancouver island. My dog and I enjoyed it, we went earlier in the year and got to hike through the snow. My dog absolutely loved it.

This is a beautiful trail leading down to the water. Very peaceful and beautifully maintained.

The trail was marked as damaged from overuse.


The view of the waterfall was incredible. It is wide and tall. The bridge was stable and allowed views of both sides.

I’ve done this hike many times. It’s not long, and the falls are beautiful. We always head off the path at the top of the waterfalls and build an inuksuk.

A nice accessible walk with a few lovely views.

Nice trail, very easy. The swim in the lower falls was brisk but refreshing and the view of the upper falls was beautiful.

FYI. We tried but logging roads are closed due to extreme fire hazard so we couldn't get up to trail head.

Make sure to check out swimming hole above upper falls, before brown wooden middle bridge down dirt path. Awesome!

Really nice scenery

This was a tough hike but the reward is so worth it! The view at the top it unreal! Took the judges route up

Nice view and walk worth going for yourself

Easy accessibility is able for all

Low effort with high reward view at the end of the walk. Has several picnic tables for a quick lunch.

Nice and easy walk with a worthwhile view.

The whole loop of the upper and lower falls in total was a relatively short hike, and not too steep with barely a switchback! the forest is beautiful and the falls are breathtaking.

Amazing! Make sure to pack your swim stuff in the summertime and a hot day, and go find a swimming hole!

I walk this trail almost every single day. Live right down the road from it. Lovely having such a beautiful part of nature so close to home ♥️

Did this hike on Canada day with the family, had two kids ages 6 and 9 and they had no problems with it. It was a a perfect length and elevation gain to avoid kid exhaustion. Great views of the surrounding area on clear days. Probably only took one hour at a leisurely pace.

great hike some birds and deer

An instant aerobic workout.! Worth it for the views.

A great short hike that pays off right away. Great, magical swim hole at the lower portion.

Beautiful walk through nature, very easy!

great for the family

great trail! disappointed with the beach views of the yellow cans... but my son sure enjoyed the sea creatures. Found lots of starfish, jelly fish, crabs and 5 dinos on the trail!!!
