Great hike. Few tough areas but some great views towards the top. Kids would have some troubles along the way, the cave could easily be missed. Keep your eyes open! Would be good till the snow flies!

This is so far my Favourite hike! Done it twice now and both times were just as amazing. Tiring trail for the young Lab but she conquered it with us carrying all her own food and water. So many different terrains, quiet trail and fantastic views throughout the entire hike! Will do it again and again.

Crescent falls will always be a favourite - try to visit at least once a years and have been down there in basically all types of weather!!

It was a great short fall hike with family and friends, enjoyed the weather and the sound of water and falls

It was a beautiful day for a short hike. Nice scenery but lots of ice on the trail.

We hiked HooDoo Valley last weekend and loved it! We thought we lost the trail at one point and decided just to follow the creek bed and it turns out we went the right way! The caves at the top were amazing but definitely take a flashlight because it is dark. This hike took us 3.5 hrs including stopping to eat at the caves. I would totally reccommend this trail! So beautiful. We saw a few sheep on the hillside but other then that no animals. The view of Abraham Lake as you are hiking is amazing as well. There was some snow covering the scramble up to the caves but otherwise was fairly clear.

My son and I went up today. Great hike for sure. Cave was highlight. Find it beyond tall hoodoo up to the right. You'll see ribbon on tree branches marking the climb up. Bring a flashlight.

Great easy hike! My dogs love it! Doesn't take long but is a nice walk. Does get quite busy recently, so head out early or later in the afternoon

its an easy trial for young children and old alike. a good choice close to city and relaxing nature walk.can go two rounds if you have time.

Toddler's Paradise! Tons of rocks and logs to climb and little waterfalls to look at. Trail is very manageable and absolutely beautiful with the leaves starting to change.

Great walk/hike with the dog

Beautiful easy hike. Nice clear water, with a few falls.

This is a beautiful place for beginners and so family and kid friendly. All the little waterfalls make for a nice walk in the park and Photography.

Even the false summit has amazing views! Worth every second of it!

Loved the waterfall and the first half of the loop. The ridge is eroded and not as well marked.

Wow the views were amazing! Not too hard of a hike. We were a little confused at first where the trail started but once we figured it out it was great!

This was a great little hike not super hard but it is a great way to start the day and get your heart rate up. Due to other reviews we were happy to find the start of the trail at the two large rocks to the right of the parking lot. The trail is marked by orange ribbons along the way which was nice. This app shows fellow hikers and there locations on a decently populated trail. The falls are beautiful.

5 min drive from my house so I take my dog every morning! Great exercise hike, just wish it was a bit longer (takes about 25 mins) - can extend by doing it twice (forward/backward). Starts getting busy around 9am in summer, bit later in spring/fall. Bugs are bad in the evening in summer. Quite icy in winter but can do with ice cleats.

Awesome little trail with tons of waterfalls for the puppy to play in!

Pretty hike - the steep view down to the river is intimidating in places. Better to start at the viewpoint and go to the falls.

The hike up to the hoodoos was straightforward and easy.... slightly underwhelming. If you continue on passed them and up to the caves, that is the real gem on this hike for sure!

A nice day hike. Looks like recent landslides have went through this area. Some of the trails through the trees on the left hand side of the creek dead ended. Maybe due to the landslide activity. We ended up turning around and going back up the creek from the 2 tall hoodoos. Found the first cave eventually which turned out to be quite interesting but definitely a scramble up and down in the scree to get to it.

Nice, easy, hike

Did this about a month ago, it’s a fun hike! It is steep in some areas and there is a bit of loose shale the entire hike so do be careful. I didn’t get far enough to see the caves unfortunately. The trail head is a little bit confusing so when you park and see the creek to your left, you can follow the creek up or just to the right of it is the actual trail. The views are amazing. Also I brought my dog with me and she managed just fine. Had to lift her onto a couple of bigger rocks to keep going but nothing to scary for her. Took about 3 1/2 hours to do (including stopping for a snack) Give it a try!

Stunning m. Feels like you are deep in the woods.

Its in good shape this year despite the hot summer. Great little quick hike.

beautiful stream. easy walk with kids.

Very basic hike, but I enjoy escaping to here once or twice a year. Great if you don’t want anything strenuous, or are physically limited or have small children! Fun to walk around with your thoughts if it’s not too busy and there are some nice small waterfalls!

Easy hike with kids!
