Peaceful and quiet. Currently there is no water in the falls, disappointing for the dog.
The map is off and takes you on a fairly unused makeshift path in the woods.
The trail is marked, next time I will follow one of the two marked trails.

It was great. I took two kids with me, and they had a ton of fun. The whole trip was about 4km walking. I definitely agree with parking at Tiffany falls and working your way to Sherman Falls.

Beautiful trail but I would not rate this as easy or kid friendly. If you have older kids (7 years and up) maybe. It gets steep at times and the wooden steps are slippery after rains and metal poles stick out of the ground at unexpected places along the trail. Needs to be better maintained. The creek and waterfall are beautiful, however you often hear road sounds so it’s not a complete serene hike. Many dog walkers leave behind bags of dog waste which ruins it for everyone else. There is a trash bin at the start of the trail near the waterfall and parking is small (and they issue tickets when parked outside the lot boundary). The trail connects with another section of Bruce Trail so you can park somewhere else and hike a bit longer to avoid the parking mayhem.

Bring your water shoes! Good for dogs and kids.

Nice trail. Lots of squirrels. LOL. Would walk it again.

Nice hike,beautiful place. Parking lot is small and the road to get in is terrible.

great views. drive up the north shore was great.

Good hike but you get yelled at through a speaker to turn around when you get close the the falls

It is not a big conversation park, but with a small fall, a little fossil museum and some fossil you can find at north of the dam. It is not too bad.

The trail is relatively easy and short for me to hike and run (with some stairway steps). The landscape is not bad. There is a longer trail which I run into it but not much people hike there. It is not hard but it is not really maintain and a bit over-vegetated with fallen trees. Lots of fossil rock near the upper river area, but mostly are shell fossil but probably you can find some with insect.

The trail itself is easy and short (if you are looking for a good hike this one will leave you less than satisfied!) however, the falls along the river at the end makes this an awesome place to relax for a few! Climb down the rocks and enjoy the sound of the rushing water, and the view of the falls!

It’s all nature and peace. Wonderful waterfall and a beautiful trail. Lots of rocks and roots cause ups and down in the trail.

Great hike, I’ve done it three times and it’s always a good time. It’s a moderate difficulty with the exception of crossing the river which is difficult with small children or more senior hikers. The waterfall is definitely a highlight and swimming is possible at the fall. The only downside are potential campers that can be noisy and litter.

Trail is closed unfortunately. You can hike from Tew’s down to the train tracks but that’s about it.

One of my most Favourite places to hike with the kids!

Beautiful area!! We hiked to the falls and back.
Had lunch at the falls, where fires are kept going.
I would say this is an easy hike & really enjoyable.

Beautiful trail, rolling hills, huge pond with frogs and at the end of the trail we did a beautiful waterfall. I would say it was a difficult hike about 2.5 hours to the falls and back. Well worth it!

amazing trail! I don't like the $10 entrance fee.

Very nice trail. The scenery is fabulous and the falls are breath taking.

Definitely for all skill levels. Paved the entire way. Great bucket list. If you’re wondering if it’s worth an hours drive if you’re around Lutsen area....yes, it is! Makes it worth the drive if you stop in Grand Marais and enjoy the town.

There are so many trails that make up the Dundas Valley so your hike can be as long or short as you want it to be. Trail is well kept. Really enjoyed hiking here!

Beautiful! I would say this is more of a moderately difficult trail as opposed to the advertised easy due to up and down stairs and walking through rooted paths. Easy to me would mean flat wide trails. Can’t wait to go back in the fall!

I would mark this trail as easy. Trail head is easily accessible with a big paid-parking lot. 1st half of the trail is fairly busy, rolling meadows, with lots of weekend-warriors. Once you get past the beginning half the crowds die down a bit and it's easy wooded trails with shady cover. Lots of opportunity to extend the hike with side trails. Keep an eye on where you're going as you may not notice and end up on a side-trail.

Small beach at the end, probably wouldn't swim in there..

At the suggestions of others here, we started the trail at Tiffany Falls and worked our way backwards. Started early in the morning so the it wasn’t super busy and it was a beautiful trail. My only disappointment is part of the trail at Sherman Falls is no longer accessible (closed to hikers) so thankfully we had a map for the Dundas Valley trails to jump on to reach Canterbury Falls
