Explore the most popular Waterfall trails in Canada with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Awesome beautiful hike in the snow season! Definitely recommend spikes of some sort for your boots. As of right now, snowshoes aren’t needed. Mostly packed down snow with a little icy patches sticking out in some spots. If you decided to hike further to the ink pots, be ready for some incline! Happy trails!

Great hike today with eagles crying out through the trees and the trail in good (not muddy) condition. Be cautious on the wooden sections- no grates on-top and VERY slippery

Great trail! Really well packed down. I would consider this an easy trail and doable for everyone. Few icy spots on the trail that spikes would be a benefit but easy enough to do without.

Beautiful winter hike! Incline was very gentle with a couple steep sections. the waterfalls were frozen over beautifully. Had great photo opportunities. went early morning and the trail was lightly trafficked. By 1130am large groups were traveling up the hills.

Around lake was packed and good for hiking. Went up to Emerald basin and snowshoed breaking trail with about 6 inches of fresh snow (on top of about a 3 foot base). Beautiful sunny day and a great 11k hike.

Really pretty trail, definitely echoing other reviews that this is for sure a hike, not a walk. Can't imagine how lovely it must be in the summer if it's this nice in December. Bruce trail is always well marked, if you're planning on coming around this season expect LOTS of mud.

Dec 7th, trail is snow covered and grown over Had to ask homeowner for directions. Curt guided us into the falls! Microspiks would have been nice as the slope to the falls was really icy.

Great trail conditions on December 8. Very easy trail as there wasn’t much elevation for the first few kilometers. We were snowshoeing. Ok views and nothing spectacular. Certainly worth being out and about.

Trail conditions are very good where you probably could go in good trail shoes after some recent snow . Pretty non technical with maybe one patch of ice I saw.

Did this trail Dec 8, 2019. Beautiful winter wonderland, hiking along the creek the entire way and crossing 10 bridges up to Lillian Lake. Periods of incline were brief. Did not need microspikes, snowshoes or poles yesterday. Fresh snow but only ankle deep on path. Definitely doing this one in summer! (2 hours 40 minutes up and 2 hours down).

Beautiful trail! Very difficult! Do not attempt at all unless you can handle a strenuous hike!

Nice hike. I did started at Park Royal and returned there. The way back can be boring. I enjoyed. It was not crowed and very fresh.

This is a hike with a number of great features. The lake is artificial due to Nova Scotia Power's hydro activity. The falls are pretty really nice. The top of the falls have a trail leading up to it. To get to the bottom, expect almost a scrable through the mature forest. Then there is the old concrete culvert under the dam. Best echo I've ever heard!

Lovely views but quite close to the highway for much of the route, so too much traffic noise for my liking.

I did this hike today Dec 7th. You could see the snow from the beginning, at the trail head. Half-way to the lake the trail became very icy and crampons are the must. When we got to the elevation of 1300m snow started to get deep and at 1500m it was deeper than 3 feet. So, it was not possible to continue without snowshoes and we had to turn back. Overall the trail is well marked and maintained. We didn’t see any other hiker on the trail.

This is a lovely trail. It's a bit muddy right now but totally doable. There is a nice waterfall at the end. Took us about 3 hours round trip with a short picnic :)

Hiked this on Dec 3/2019 and really enjoyed it. It was overcast, -7C, light snow and moderate wind. Only saw 5 other people on the trail. The trail was packed well with some fresh snow and I used micro-spikes though not necessary. I used snowshoes to cross the lake and climb up into the valley to the right. I decided not to climb to the Big Beehive as it looked snowed in and there were no signs anyone else had tried it. I then climbed to Little Beehive and returned via an alternate route to Mirror Lake and then took the snowshoeing trail #18 back to the Chateau. Very picturesque and I took lots of great pictures.

Did this trail in the summer. As mentioned, google the parking lot access to this, don’t use what all trails says. Nice run, one of my first trail runs. Easy, flat. Easily enough marked trail. Parts of the trail was closed but people were hopping over the barriers to see the falls. I’m planning on running it again this winter.

Avalanche territory. Don’t go unless you have proper gear. Amazing hike though. Beautiful.
