Very snowy day, but the trail is well marked so still easy to follow

Really nice view!! and not too far from town :) It's a short trail too. If you are looking for short activity, this trail is the best! I will do it again!

An alright trail. Dirty areas with garbage and broken glass near the Staples. Some scenic parts. A lot of it is paved.

Meh. Seems pretty popular this weekend but I didn't like it. I've been on some great trails in the nwt but this is my least favourite. I'll come back in a year or two. Maybe it'll be better marked by then. Ranney Hill is a great trail.

good trail, but comes across quite a few swampy areas so bring boots. seen a really big wolf as well as some black bear a couple times so keep a eye and maybe bring bear mace or something but you will come across that most places you hike in NWT. Beautiful lake you can fish and camp. trails aren't bad but the growth needs to be cut back a little as you will go through some bush and rocks may be quite slippery if raining. The trail is ribboned along trees to fallow aswell, over all it's a pretty good hike.

Well marked easy trail with lovely views ..

A nice little hike, fairly short and enjoyable for the whole family. Dog friendly as well. The water falls are beautiful, as is the view from elevation!

Amazing trail that leads to a great view. Muddy on some spots and some trail markers were kinda hard to spot sometimes. Highly reccomend this trail

Fun trail ! Beautiful paved portion by Somba K'e park which turns into off trail rocky area with bridges that come out of nowhere and markers that are fun to find next. Informative wildlife signs throughout and picturesque benches. Great views of Legislative Assembly. Very good trail !

Nice trail but I find that some of the trail markers could be a bit hard to spot sometimes. Some parts are muddy. Great views of the frame lake trail and the accesibility from downtown makes it a great trail though.

A short trail that takes less than 10 minutes to one of the prettiest views around yk.

great trail, but I would rate it as moderate for sure. it's about 6.5km, and only a paved trail for about 1/4 of it. once you're behind the hospital it's all rock, and the trail markers can be hard to spot sometimes (they also look like cigarettes haha white concrete posts with a darker orange tip). a great trail tho, would definitely do it again!

Fabulous little hike to the falls.

Cameron Falls is a nice short hike, with rocky terrain with the occasional wooden stairs/pathway to help with the incline. The waterfalls at the end of the hike are gorgeous. Highly recommend!

Great little hike across exposed rocks, fragrant forests and with views of the nearby lake. The trail had interesting info boards. Few bugs. Lots of colourful lichens and August berries to enliven the walk. It was dry when I walked it today but on a wet day, some of the trail might be slightly treacherous. Highly recommended!

on Prosperous Narrows

There’s an unmarked rocky area beside the road you can pull off into. There is a quad trail that leads to a “stage” with a nice view of part of the lake. There is no actual trail where the app says to go unless you want to bushwhack.

found the trailhead, but the double track takes you to where a house was started to be built (a bit ago it looks). Found an overgrown looking trail to the bluff shores and a few pieces of flagging but gave up, enjoyed the view and returned. You could follow the shore around if you felt like.

One of my new favorites near YK. There is a small pull off across from the trailhead but definitely a tricky one to find at first. Beautiful lookouts on way out, i made a loop and came back through forest (with some rock). worth the loop I think. you can avoid the steep down to the shore if you want too. Some markings (orange tape, logs, white paint) but not consistent. Worth the hunt.

Fun easy trail, pretty small water falls. Trail is marked well. Running shoes are fine.
