Great Hike- we had to ditch the snowshoes about 2km as there was not enough snow. But it would doable all the way up with them.

Awesome trail with incredible views. Only thing I found was there was minimal signage along the trail with made it difficult to stay on track in the winter. On the other side though the trail head and the road to the parking lot were very well signed. Summer time I’m sure the trail would be more visible!

Nice and simple hike. My boyfriend, dog and I hiked out to the 3rd waterfall which is about 8km from the trailhead. Great views the whole way and easy trail to follow along the river. Recommend this hike to anyone!

Amazing views from the top! Be prepared for switchbacks though, as this trail is full of them!! I’ve done this hike a few times now and have enjoyed the “reward” at the top every time!

I did this in the summer however! Just late to rate it.

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!

Was beautiful. Like most reviews stated lots of tall trees so the views were limited. Didnt finish the hike but accomplished 75%. Lots of bear tracks and scat.

Oct 21 - Although the weather felt like the first week of September, the trails were 95% dry. This is a STEEP hike. Leg burner for sure. I wouldn’t recommend it for beginners but it is a doable day hike. We took a right (left takes you to the lake) at about the 4km mark up to the ridge. The fork is poorly marked. Getting up to the ridge is all loose shale or a scramble up big rocks. The 360 views are worth it. Next summer I’d like to hike up and camp over night at the lake.

We made it up and back in 4:15, including a lunch stop. Pretty easy hike. You work up a bit of a sweat between km 4 -7. There is no way to get lost as you follow a road up. The walk back down seemed to go on forever. I would say it is an easy hike but a long distance.

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.

Lovely little trail to take with dog and husband. Extra loop north of the bridge on the East side was worth the diversion!

Steep but very manageable hike. You can do this hike easily in an afternoon. There are great views along the way and the lake at the end is beautiful. We did this hike in late September and didn’t see another soul, but did follow some cougar tracks for about half the hike, so make sure you bring your bear spray just in case.

Great trail, easy hike beautiful suspension bridge. Did this hike with husband and friends at 26 weeks pregnant. Would be a great family hike. We carried on pass the park boundary; well worth it! The trail does get harder past the waterfalls and can be a little hard to navigate.

Scenic, easy trail. I think next time I'll continue on the trail after the first falls.

The air was still a little smokey which dampened the view a bit. Great hike, good elevation, a little sketchy walking the ridge but the view is worth it! It was nice having bathrooms at the entrance of the hike as well.

Amazing views.

Great little hike. Not too steep or far, just enough to get you working a bit harder. Plan to spend some time at the lake at the end or overnight!

An easy walk around the lake. the loop takes you through a number of boreal ecosites, including a portion of boardwalk through a wetland. our kids, 4 and 6, spent time exploring the different plants and trees found along the loop.

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.

The same thing happened to my friend and me last summer. This trail was supposed to be a loop, but loop we did not. There were no signs and the markers were confusing. Because of this, we kept following what we thought were our markers and ended up on a power line trail. We hiked for quite some time under the hot blistering sun, with zero idea of where we were. Finally reached a road and were able to eventually catch a ride back to Fish Lake.

Really nice hike, steep in spots. Had my 9 year old son with me and he carried a 21lb pack with him with no issues. Take the time and camp up near the lake. Will do this again for sure.

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!

Excellent short hike. Good for beginners.

If Vision Quest down the road is rated as 'Hard', this would be considered extreme for new climbers. The trail was either washed out or non existent, but the goat/sheep trails were spectacular! It was a steep incline the whole way up with 70% or more scrambling....and we wouldn't have had it any other way. Such a blast with extremely beautiful views to top it off. Don't turn back, it's worth it!!!

Rated as moderated but would definitely say it’s “easy”. Done this a couple times, and both times were fairly busy with horses and ATV’s. It’s an easy trail walk into the lake. Good to do with kids or the family!
