Easy hike for a family! It was a touch icy in spots throughout . Kids had fun sliding on the icy hill parts while we skirted in the brush to stay upright. But lots of dry/bare spots too!

Quiet and pretty trail, nobody else here when I visited. Good for a quick stroll.

Great trails, well marked. Icy in spots.

Love this place

Well maintained. Easy access from Calgary.
Suitable for kids, dogs of all type and people of all skill levels.
The views are great but nothing extraordinary. I recommend for people who are looking for something easy.

As of today there wasn’t much snow, some slippery spots on the incline and declines. Good hike for beginners or young kids as it’s mostly flat, but for the short inclines they are fairly steep! Didn’t see any wildlife but there were some smaller tracks, Beautiful views and the trail is one of the best marked ones we’ve seen. Would recommend to anyone looking for an easier/shorter outing

Nice hiking in the city lots of different routes to take. ALWAYS follow the trail as the signs state!

Don’t expect those breathtaking summit views, but for its category, it is definitely a 5 star little hike. We did this trip as a family with little kids and grandma. Everyone enjoyed it a lot, really nice scenery with all those little waterfalls. Located so close to Cochrane, it’s a perfect quick getaway from our busy life especially for those who live in town. We will be back for sure to see the different seasons there.

Nice hiking.

We love this hike. We took family friends out for the afternoon and they thoroughly enjoyed it. We saw some deer running through the lower end as we hit the top of the hike. Beautiful scenery.

Did this little loop two times now and found it enjoyable both times would go back again.

Very nice trail! Though be aware of cougars. We spotted one.

great scenery and not too tough for two old and out of shape prairie girls

Easy hike with beautiful views of downtown and the Rockies.

We had planned on doing another trail, but ended up here in late October. The trail was pretty icy and I was glad we brought poles. Traction wear would have been good too. Good view of a couple mountain peaks along the way. We set out walking along the creek. There were many good quality bridges crossing the creek, which I thought added nicely to the hike.

Loved the bridges and the creek. Great parking facilities but the access road is very washed out for my small car.

Great day walk with a group including young ones. It was a little icy as there was lots of snow pack but the scenery was beautiful, the sun was out and well worth it.

I had a lovely afternoon hike with my dog. It is out of the city but is close enough for a spur of the moment hike. Trails are well marked and easy for a casual walk. Muddy spots.

kind of muddy today but pretty

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

Went in the winter, and it was a very flat, and relatively unspectacular view from the end of the trail. It was still fun and nice, but I’d need to go in the summer to give it a fair rating I think.

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

Ended up off trail and found myself bushwhacking and climbing precariously along a rock-face.. not what I had intended!! Lol but seriously stunning views :)

This is an easy hike and has beautiful Scenery, but disappointing. The trail just end and seem very Anticlimactic. At the end you can hear a waterfall that is just out of view, unless you are adventuresome and crawl up the creek on logs and rocks. I do love the views of Heart Mountain and the beauty in the canyon. Have done this hike twice once in the spring and now in the fall. The trail was snow covered and becoming icy.

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

Nice short easy walk. It was the first mountain walk I’ve taken my dog on and the first mountain walk I’ve done solo. Not a super busy path, although there were others around which was comforting but I also did it end of September. Great for a easy walk close to the city!
