Absolutely amazing for a family friendly hike. Definitely go to the upper falls to see the many levels of the waterfall. Spectacular! We had gone first week of Sep and it was great weather. Had a bunch of boys and 3 toddlers within the group and they all managed to walk to the lower and upper falls although it can be challenging for little legs for sure.

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 :)

Fairly new to hiking and found this to be a perfect adventure for my skill level. Amazing views of Spray Lake and the surrounding mountains. The pass was snow covered as was most of the trail up. There are a few steep and wet spots where the trail really thins out. We had a beautiful sunny day but would have liked cleats in parts. Nice to see the Wind Tower peak so close but would not want to attempt summiting that this time of year.

Went on Saturday Oct 13 (the year winter came early). Snow covered the trail the whole way with some bare spots on the bottom 3rd.
The trail was well packed and easy to see and navigate till the top. At the top, it appeared to be less traveled and then the trail disappeared on the last little bit. Here we had to trudge through some deeper snow (would sink to your knees roughly) to get to the other side and see the valley.
I'd recommend cleats and gators. Weather was cold and windy at the top.
As mentioned before, park right at the trail head as opposed to driftwood parking lot.
Did the whole trip in 3.5hrs, that included walking around exploring at the top and having a lunch/beer! Great hike for beginners that want to step it up a notch.

I really wanted to check out this bunker without the massive amount of ppl. Therefore a good friend and I decided to go during the week after the big snow fall we had. It was beautiful! Lots of deep snow and not a single person except us. Really enjoyed it!

Beautiful wide open off-leash dog park in the mountains. There are multiple trails that take you around the lake that allow dogs. However, the picnic table area closest to the lake does not allow dogs. The lake itself is gorgeous and picturesque! Definitely worth the trek. It’s a relatively easy terrain even in the snow.

Seriously underrated. We came on a Sunday morning back in June and there was not a soul in sight. It's essentially just a leisurely stroll with a huge reward. I absolutely recommend this for families or those who just want a small hike for half the day.

Beautiful trail, steep the last 2/3rds to the top. Snow covered last quarter, definitely need hiking boots or trail running shoes.

Was cool to see the bunker, but we could always here traffic from the Trans Canada highway from all parts of the trail. Decent quick walk in the morning, but not nearly as spectacular as so many other trails in the area.

Steep walk for the first 20 minutes but totally worth it and easy the rest of the way. Very rewarding the whole time. Every part is super beautiful.

Easy hike, worth the walk and beautiful sights.
We did the Troll Falls (you can climb up to the water fall) and also the Upper falls hike (although it is not currently maintained, it is very safe to do).
When you get to the parking in the trail head, make sure you make a left to the woods immediately or you will end up walking several miles in the Stoney Trail.

Fun easy hike! great with kids! climb up and over falls to see more!

It was raining and starting to slick up so we didn’t go past the first falls. But what a great walk with kids on a cold and rainy Saturday.

Great hike. Easy to do, fun to explore. Great pay off. I definitely suggest continuing past the first falls. You can go in behind the upper falls and it has spectacular views. Not sure if there is a direct path but we wound up doing some unintentional rock climbing to get up there. Well worth it.

Fun easy short trail, was not too busy but the weather wasn’t very nice. Lots of water in the cave so sadly didn’t go in far. Definitely had a strong lingering weed smell like a lot of people have said lol. Definitely want to go back and explore the cave a bit.

Very easy walk. Quite short. Pretty falls at the end.

Did this walk just before dinner after arriving to the camp ground. We were treated to a quiet walk and a spectacular view at the lake with a light mist rolling and flowing over the water.

Pretty steep hike and you have to really make sure where you're going because the trail is poorly marked. But once you get to the top, the view of the water on one side and the valley on the other side are incredible. Highly recommend. TAKE YOUR TIME. Breathtaking hike for breathtaking views.

I absolutely loved this trail for me and my dog. Quite easy and we were there early enough that we didn't see anyone until we were a minute away from the parking lot.
Bring a headlamp if you want to explore the bunker. Having worked underground at a mine in the past, the smells and tunnel brought back some memories! No smell of weed as others have said. If there was a way to remove graffiti, maybe someone can take that upon themselves to do that.

This hike is so beautiful. The comments on here helped a lot. I would recommend parking closer to the trail head and not at the Driftwood parking lot (it adds about a good chunk of time to the hike).

Amazing hike! But you really do need to keep staying to the right, we ended up on a cliff and had to turn around haha till we found the right trail! Amazing once you get to the top!

This was a really fun hike! The trail isn't very difficult and it takes you to a really neat old bunker in the mountain. The bunker is dark so bring a light so you can explore inside. It isn't very big but there is some cool art on the walls! A perfect adventure for someone who likes to see unique things.

The trail is not well marked we got lost and ended climbing up and going down several times trying to find the right trail, lots of steep incline and loose gravel.

Great fun to do the dog park and a big section of trail with the dog! Quite disappointed I couldn’t go right to the lake, dogs are prohibited (even on leash)

Great for meditation

So, I read all the reviews about this hike and everyone was pretty spot on.
I would like to note that instead of parking at the driftwood day use to go up the road just a little further. The actual trail head for the west wind pass is closer to this entrance, otherwise you hike about an extra 30-40 minutes. We ended up turning back and then driving farther up thinking we were on the wrong trail all together.
The main trail sign you see is called high rockies trail. You will find a branch off for the west wind pass.
The trail is steep. I'm a beginner and it's doable but it took a bit longer than an hour and yes, there's a section closer to the top that's hard to see the trail and we went the wrong way and had to come back down, so just take your time and keep right, look ahead if you can't see the trail clearly, it will help you see the best route to go.
Have good hiking shoes. This is not a nature walk, the terrain is loose. You may want a walking stick too, just so a little extra support.
For cooler days I'd recommend some gloves for up top and a windbreaker as well.
It's getting 4 star because the trail was a bit hard to locate. I've posted some photo's to help others on their venture.
Definitely would go again.
