I was there again on April 15th, it was really, really slushy. I’d recommend gaiters! Also there was a few patches where we sank into the snow well past our knees although it made for a great laugh, it was a bit more work to get out of the snow. Still beautiful and worth the adventure. Take some extra clothes to be dry on the ride home!

Love this easy hike for the kiddos beautiful scenery and close to the hotel for food and picnic spots, great hike in winter, fall or summer

This is a great trail for in summer, easy for my 4 year old to keep up pretty neat waterfall at the end. Short trip though but nice for a picnic

Great and easy little hike with stunning views. Recommend microspikes during this time of year.

This was a pretty easy hike! In the winter, you can walk right up to the water fall and walk under it which is pretty sweet. It’s not a huge water fall but still pretty! If you’re planning on going before summer, wear water proof shoes of some sort as the ground is quite damp.

will go back in the summer. only downside was the noise and scenery downer from the Plant and powerlines that was next to/through the majority of the trail

Nice sunset walk just before dinner, a great way to close the day after long hiking elsewhere. Practical if you are staying at the campsite closeby. However, I wouldn't make a detour for it.

a little difficult with snow on the ground, but still fun fir the kiddos and beautiful. also, unless we missed it, we couldn't find the loop and had to turn around on the 3rd or 4th bridge. also, to note, there is no telus mobile service. we will definitely go back and try again.

Gentle walk, great for young kids with a reward at the end!

Very nice hike! Will definitely do it again.

Beautiful hike!! A hidden treasure, definitely get out there before too many people discover it!! Spikes needed.
One of my all time favorites!

Hubby and I took our Australian Shepherd to the upper falls on Monday (April 2) the trail is very well done, perfect those wanting a nice leisurely walk. Not really a hike, and unfortunately far too many people on the trail, way too crowded!!

Great little hike for after work

Always a great short little hike! Bring spikes if you want to explore up near the falls.

One of my favourite hikes. Have been 8 times now. To avoid even the spring crowds go early or around 5 pm. Ruins it when you have hundreds of people on the trail with you.
If hiking in the spring you will have difficulties if you go in runners or flip flops or any of the other summer shoes I have encountered people struggling with on the trail. Buy or rent crampons/cleats and enjoy the steady climb up the canyon :)

Fantastic underrated kid friendly winter trail! Make sure to have crampons or cleats (especially for little ones). Do not let the beginning of the trek fool you. Once you get past the industrial plant and into the canyon it is incredible and half the people than Johnston. My kids thought it was incredible to climb the rock sides and slide down as well as climb the frozen waterfall at the end. Take a lunch and a beverage for the end and enjoy :)

great kid friendly trail!

would do this one again spikes recommended

loved this trail easy for kids and great scenery and pics

Easy hike; a little slippery at certain points. The views are amazing. Make sure to check out the cave!

Fun winter hike! Absolutely beautiful.
