Nice, easy, hike

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

Nice short trail to start with, views of the lakes and surrounding mountains.

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!

So nice! Took our group an hour return but you could def take longer to enjoy the views. This one was tough at spots for me, as someone who is not used to the altitude. The signs along the trail explaining the geography and history were great! Lots of benches along the way.

Easy hike with kids!

Great little hike but there is a lot of people there

LOCAL FAVOURITE

Perfect for swimming, hiking, dog walking, and general relaxing but it is always busy during the spring and summer months!

This is a nice, short walk that's not too far out of Calgary. An easy place to bring folks who aren't used to hiking; very family friendly. There was a big group having a BBQ at the base of the trail the day we went - lots of kids splashing in the water and parents chatting around the picnic tables.

Very easy and flat. Short hike and not much for views. See a bit of the river at points.

I wouldn’t call it a hike really. Apparently there was more to it before the flood. Still quite pretty but not much in the way of trails. You just go for the view

Easy hike for the family new to hiking. Pretty falls and lovely in the fall when the leaves are changing. The only downside is the area was heavily damaged from the 2013 flood and changed the look. The falls were effected but still lovely.

Another quick, easy hike for the family new to hiking. I love coming here in the fall when the leaves are changing. Makes for beautiful pics. Lovely falls near the beginning of the trails. Fun for kids.

Arrived around 10:15 am on a Sunday and parking lot was almost full. Trails were not too busy though. This is a nice easy short walk. I brought my puppy and she loved the trail. It was muddy in some spots but not too bad. I have done this trail in almost every season and it’s beautiful every time!

This was such a sweet little walk through the forest with lovely views of the bow river

Really easy path, walking slow and steady took 1.5-2hrs. Really kid friendly. Dog friendly. Easy parking, washrooms in parking area.

Easy walk with good mountain views and gorgeous greenish water!

We went for a late afternoon stroll last week. It’s a super easy trail and very pristine. We were absorbed by the quietness, birds chirping around us. Great to reflect and release and be back fresh.
About a 45 minutes walk. There’s no picnic table - so bring your chair.

Nice easy hike for pretty much anyone. You can choose your path based on your skill level. Great history to be seen from the old butter churn.

Was there mid July. Was very busy. Nice place for a hot summer day if you have a couple hours to drive minutes outside the city.

Boring. Great for toddlers or senior citizens but if you're younger than 65, it's boring. Well maintained, flat with little rocks or roots to worry about tripping. Wind was up so mosquitoes weren't a problem for me but can see how others have noted due to marsh lands.

Well shaded. Waterfall was beautiful. Went on a Friday evening and it wasn't very busy. Took us just under an hour with the pups.

Very busy. Nice views.. nice for a quick walk out side of calgary

Very busy . Not a hike , more like a quick walk in the park. Very beautiful though. Would be nice to pack a munch and sit along side the stream
