Lots of people, but waterfalls are always awesome

Absolutely stunning views at the top. Well worth the work you put in to get up there.

Challenging trail and very busy! Up to the false peak it’s taxing and steep but not too technical. Scramble from the false peak to the true peak is very exposed and technical. Snow free!

Wow this trail was a challenge. I loved it though! The trail is incline the whole way, the trails are very clear on where you should be walking so that was appreciated as it was our first time. LOTS of fellow hikers, dogs and kids so if busy trails are not your thing I recommend going early in the morning. If you don’t decide to go all the way to the top there are many great places to sit down, eat lunch take great shots and etc. I will definitely do this trail again ove my legs recover!

Awesome hike, the trail is a bit overgrown and that is probably the only negative I have about the hike. It is for sure a harder one after the waterfall. If you want not too bad of a hike just to the falls itself I think most could do. Couple patches of snow we had to get across, couple weeks would be gone. At one point had 15 mountain sheep by us, which was super cool. The trail after the falls is not very easy to follow but there is some scrambling , not for beginners for sure. Amazing views , depending on your experience would determine which way you should go, the east is for sure for experience hikers who know how to scramble, the west is a climb up but doable. Amazing views once you get to the top. A great hike

Good hike for a relaxed day! The length of this trail makes it harder but it is relatively flat. The first half of the trail is definitely a hike with many small inclines and declines. Second half is completely flat and through the forest making it more of a long nature walk. We hiked it from east to west.

Take around 5hrs total to get in and out. It is basically just walking on the creek bed. You will need water shoes. You have to weave back and forth over the stream. We made it up without getting wet mostly, but the stream somehow doubled in depth on the way back. It’s very pretty but is a creek bed hike, mostly in the sun.

Trail was dry all the way to heli pad. Small amount of mud (easily doable in shoes) near pad. Trail shoes or hikers recommended. Lots of people both up and down but all polite and courteous. Once you get on trail from creek bed, trail goes up and then up and up some more. No real plateau section, although areas on trail you can pull off and take a break. Bring moleskin and lots of water. About 5hrs round trip with water breaks when needed and lunch at pad. Parking lot fills up early and you will likely have to park on street.

Harder trail then I thought it would be. Felt like a climb straight up. Lots of places to stop and rest in the shade, though. Trail was well marked. Can’t get lost once you start on the trailhead. Some snow near the summit, lots of traffic and dogs on the trail.

Trail is in great shape. We travelled from Banff to Canmore. If you’re worried about getting wet, there are three location with very minor water to cross along the trails. All families can take it. Consider it easy for adults and moderate for kids.

Long trail mainly in the woods. There was so much swampy water that covered the trails my feet and my friends feet were soaked from trying to avoid the water. Bring rubber boots lol.

Attempted to do Cascade today but the Road is Closed to the trailhead off the Hwy Will have to wait until they reopen or add the extra 6km each way to the trailhead.

Overall I enjoyed this hike. It was on the harder side - some nice views, scrambling near the top, and steep most of the way up. A bit of mud higher up but otherwise excellent conditions. Turned back after the heli-pad, the rest of the way to the ridge was quite shaley which I didn’t feel overly comfortable hiking. Used poles for the way down which were super useful.

Loved this little hike. Many people aren’t familiar with it, so you get a chance to be one with nature.

Beautiful trail, 1 hour to the top.. quite steep but very worth it. A little rocky, we were happy we wore hiking boots. Might need some bug spray.
