I’d rate this a 3.5. More of a quad trail than hiking trail. Great if you need an accessible route but not challenging.

Amazing challenge. I'm a guy who likes to get the hard stuff out of the way first, so it was very nice when my camp group over the summer decided to start on the north end. Was really hard on the feet, our group did about an average of 12k a day, the trip took 5 days to complete (although we decided to kill it one day so we got a whole day off at one of the campsites). Feet were wet for practically the entire trip, rained for the majority of the trip but that just makes you go faster, so not a total downside. The scenery changes immensely throughout the hike, keeps things very interesting. The campsites themselves are mostly gorgeous. Overall 10/10 would hike again.

Amazing, very challenging the rain retarded our every step, I injured myself on the south end of the trail which is where we started so I only made it too Marian lake but it was incredible . prepare yourself, I didn’t have trekking poles but I will definitely Invest in them next time as the injury would have been avoided if I had them

Ran the trail in one shot. Parks Manitoba did a nice job cleaning up some of the north end of the trail. Conditions were pretty awful due to a couple weeks of rain leading up to my day. Very beautiful, challenging terrain. Highly recommend for future adventurers. Hopefully the conditions were dryer than we had.

Best trail I've hiked so far. Definitely a challenge with amazing scenery as a pay off. Left the vehicle at the trail head without issue.

Let me start by saying that this is a challenging hike. Not the toughest I've done, by any means, nor the most technical, but it's long and tough, especially with gear. Lots of ups and downs. The trailhead sign says to allow 12 hours, and I think that's accurate for beginners, without gear. With gear, it took us even longer, but I had first-timers with me (experienced hikers, first time backpackers), and it had rained significantly so the trail was muddy and slippery. I do not recommend this for your first backpacking trip. It's doable, but you'll need a steely resolve. The beauty of this trail is unparalleled in Manitoba. You'll find a gorgeous hybrid of Ontario-style Canadian Shield landscape mixed with surprising rain forest plant growth. Stunning moss, and an ever-evolving ground cover that is breath-taking if you take the time to appreciate it. This is not a heavily trafficked trail, so much of the growth is undisturbed. Even the fungi are varied and interesting. Some of the trees begin to compare to the smallest of the redwoods out west. If flora is your thing, you will be a happy hiker, I promise. We went in early September, so the bugs were minimal. Some of the nights had hit below zero already, which definitely helped. When we stopped for the night, they were active and for a time, pretty horrendous, so I can only imagine them in full swing. Come prepared with long sleeves, pants, and a head covering, at the least. Fully hooded bug jacket if you're phobic. We went left at the fork, opting to cover the slightly tougher, slightly shorter portion of the trail first, on the Grass River side. Like others, we had trouble finding the designated campsites, which do not appear to be at the location indicated on the Provincial Park map. We camped at the helicopter landing area, which was a no-no (but lovely). Since we were the only ones around, we didn't feel too bad about it. The actual campsites are about 2 Kms farther down the path, toward the falls. The waterfalls, the reason for the trip, are very impressive. Both Pisew Falls and Kwasitchewan Falls are beautiful in their own way. We liked that we could get right up to Kwasitchewan Falls, and get an immediate sense of their volume and power. The lookout at Pisew Falls gives you a head-on view that allows you to appreciate the whole thing at once, but at a distance. All-in-all, this is an astounding hike, but you'll work for it. My crew absolutely loved it, despite the rain, blisters, sore muscles and chafing. But for some, short on experience or appreciation of natural beauty, it may fall on the wrong side of the difficulty/reward equation. But do it anyway.

Amazing first time on the trail, definitely tests your fitness level! But worth it for the adventure seekers looking for amazing views and different terrains. Met the friendliest people along the trail as well.

Easy at the start, but some steep ups and downs as you go along. Mostly just parallels the highway but has some views of the lakes.

the trail is actually 29km's not 24km's. A true Manitoba gem!

Amazing and beautiful trail that covers the two highest waterfalls in Manitoba. Well worth doing but be prepared for mud, steep climbs and bugs. The views of Kwasitchewan Falls, Phillips Lake, the Grass River, and the forest are spectacular!

It was a difficult trail Long, lots of ups and downs Bugs were keeling us We heard wolfs, saw some wolf’s prints in a mud and saw a lot of bear poops along the trail Took 7 hours for whole loop and we hiked fast Waterfalls are beautiful and worth each bug bite

South to North: the common feedback I've heard from other hikers about this trail is the southern end is the most difficult with it's higher elevation through undulating terrain. TRUTH: I've unfortunately never completed the trail but have done the route from South Trailhead to Caribou Lake East a few times. Only once I've made the distance to Marion Lake where the scenery/trail only gets better from there (or so I've heard). I hope to finish this trail in full next year but always look forward to the thrill I feel starting this challenging and equally rewarding trail. See ya soon Big Whiteshell Trailhead (North Trailhead)!

So hot. No bugs. No bear sightings, which was good since we accidentally left the bear spray IN OUR TRUCK LOL Nice trail. We walked up to Caribou East. Spent the night then came back the next day. Was pretty well marked. Bring water!! Lots.

Great trail, definitely not moderate as it should be easy. Well groomed trail. Few options for bathrooms so be prepared.

This was one the most beautiful thru-hikes I have done so far. Yes, the bugs are intense, but that’s nothing a 15$ mesh jacket can’t fix. Heaps of strawberries and raspberries so lots of intermittent snacking. The trail follows the river and then crashes down to lake Phillips through Kwasitchewan falls-absolutely stunning! I went with 2 friends, 1 of them this being her very first multi-day trek! (Tough go for her so maybe a bit difficult for first timers but the reward is big) We hit the trail on July 19th and we’re back at the parking lot by July 20th at 4PM. According to my phone we hiked 27.7km (13+14.7). I am experienced hiker and we had plenty of time for the surprise kms so we made the best of it. We stayed at the third campsite which is an absolute gem and even went for a dip by the rocks when we set up that afternoon. We spotted what appeared to be bob cat prints in the mud on the way back so that was awesome! The trail is fairly well marked for the most part but there’s a section near the start that is super mossy that has quite a few splits so just make sure to look for the orange flagging tape. No bear bins so make sure you have what it takes to hang your food and pack in what you pack out! (Found a bit of litter at our spot) On a side note, i don’t know what the deal is about getting a good view of Kwasitchewan? My friends and I were able to find multiple good view points! Would definitely come back and even try the canoe version of the trip! Enjoy :)

we hiked in here for camping and stopped at the first set of camping. the site was located close to a stream so we could fill up our water filter. fully stocked camp site with firewood, fire pits, picnic tables, and an outhouse with toilet paper. it took us 3 hours to hike in. and about the same to hike out. the trail was well groomed but has large sections of uneven terrain. the map shows crossing numerous streams, which we were hoping to fill out water with frequently, especially travelling with two dogs. most of the streams were dry, so no water top ups for 3 hours, which was tough when carrying 50lb of gear on our backs:) with that, we still recommend this trail. it's. it difficult as long as you are well prepared.

I hiked in on July 16 and hiked out on July 17 2019. This was my first backcountry hike/overnight camp with a couple friends who have decent experience. We were prepared with the proper gear, but we weren’t prepared for the difficulty of the trail. We completed it, but it was a slog, as mentioned by others. Unfortunately our hike occurred the day after a full day of rain. My waterproof boots didn’t keep me dry long, and the bugs were the worst I’ve ever seen on a trail. They kept us from stopping for proper food or rest breaks, which made things worse. Quite overgrown, we had to push through bushes often. We decided to do the upper track (Grass River side) first and then come back on the Phillips Lake side. However, when we got to the crossing after camp site 3, there was NO BRIDGE TO BE FOUND. There was no way to get across the quickly flowing water that was measured with my hiking pole to be about waist height on me (5’3”). We were so disappointed that we made it to the end and then weren’t even able to see Kwasitchewan Falls. I’m not sure who to contact about this, but in the mean time, those wishing to see the falls should take the Phillips Lake side. I’m proud that we completed it (11 hrs total), but I wouldn’t do this trail again.

Okay, so this trail isn’t necessarily 3-star worthy depending on who you are and your hiking intentions. I don’t mind a challenge in terms of distance, but this is a monotonous trek. The trailhead board says the loop is 22k, but my gps clocked 27k by the time everything was said and done. It took us 7 hours. The pros: -Great if you want a backcountry hike (especially if you want to overnight at the falls). -Fairly accessible - some overgrowth, but it wasn’t terrible and it was well-marked. If you’re in good hiking shape, not too physically challenging. -You start and end with waterfalls, which is pretty amazing. The cons: -The bugs were horrific. We went in the middle of July and every annoying bug under the sun attacked – mosquitos, horseflies, black flies, and even fish flies. -Even if it’s hot out, I recommend long sleeves, full pants, loose fitting clothing. -Once at Kwasitchewan Falls, it is a bit hard to find a decent view of them in its entirety. Granted, we were so annoyed with the bugs, we didn’t look too hard for when you stopped moving that’s when they were the worst. -Perceived wolf scat on the trails (seen a few times). A bit scary. But no bear scat! -It also started thunder storming on our way back, so waterproof hiking boots are a must! And good quality hiking gear (clothing, waterproof bag). If you’re just going for the waterfall views, Pisew is adequate, if not better than K Falls. If you’re wanting to make a day out of backcountry hiking, then you’d probably enjoy it! Just be prepared when it comes to bugs, weather, and time.
