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.

Toddler's Paradise! Tons of rocks and logs to climb and little waterfalls to look at. Trail is very manageable and absolutely beautiful with the leaves starting to change.

great easy hike but really interesting to go through the canyon and see the rock formations

Snowy today and a bit slippery in parts. Be sure to wear layers, hat, gloves, proper hiking boots, and bring poles if you are not steady. Was able to complete the hike in an hour. No views today because of the weather.

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

Great walk/hike with the dog

Beautiful easy hike. Nice clear water, with a few falls.

Pretty easy trail. The trail is well travelled so it's nice and wide open. Great views from the top. Good short hike if you're looking for something that's not hard but still gives great views

This a great hike for families. My kids (ages 6 and 10) handled it beautifully. The bridges are fun to cross and they enjoyed jumping from rock to rock in places. You may see climbers so look up!

Was a great little hike. Took about 1.5 hours including picture stops. Some snow today and a bit of mud, but not too bad and still good footing.

quick hike to complete in an hour. take the "more difficult" route for a more scenic hike and awesome gain elevation near the waterfall to the top. i would recommend you come back the way you came vs doing the "easy" route back down; it's boring but understandably save for those that need a level way to walk. beautiful view of canmore. don't forget to carry your bear spray. :D

A fairly quick (1-1.5 hours at a casual pace) hike with some great views of the Bow Valley to the East and West (including the town of Banff). Certainly can be done by people of all ages and abilities, but there are some steeper sections could tire some people out that are not in great shape so would recommend going slow if you are fairly new to hiking. Experienced hikers and those in good shape can get up pretty quickly and as some have mentioned there are usually some people running the trail. Some of the best views are on the way up especially to the East side of the mountain over the Banff Springs Golf Course and Rundle Mountain.

Stunning lakes! Quick and easy hike :)

Great place to hike for any age. Make sure you have proper footwear as it is quite rocky - a lady making her way up had fallen and hurt her ankle (hope you are doing ok!) If you go in the late morning/early afternoon it's quite busy all the way up to the waterfall, take a left and follow that trail into a nice open spot with inuksuks and hoodoos, we stayed in that area for half an hour and didn't see many others.

beautiful trails! go the extra hike to the upper falls and explore! its much prettier up there and way less busy :)

This is a beautiful place for beginners and so family and kid friendly. All the little waterfalls make for a nice walk in the park and Photography.

It’s a nice hike but would be neat in summer when there is water flowing in the creek/river. Go right to the cave and climb up to it.

I love this hike, I do it every time I visit. An easy walk or run up, and you get great views! Perfect to do with a doggo at your side.

Very crowded trail (probably because it’s so close to town) with some decently nice views. The lakes were closed off when we went but you could still see them. Lots of people, some trash on the trails, very noisy, etc. If you do this hike, it would be best to go early in the morning or later in the afternoon. Also, opt for the “difficult” route. It’s not too tough and it’s much more pleasant/less traveled.

Great for meditation

Fairly easy hike with a great view of Canmore, the river, surrounding mountains and of a waterfall! Be prepared for the trail to be wet.

Loved the waterfall and the first half of the loop. The ridge is eroded and not as well marked.

Easy walk- I wouldn’t even call it a hike. I think anyone could do it. Nice forest views and the waterfall at the end was pretty. It’s a trail I would go running on.

great for kids easy hike dogs love do it again soon for sure

Easy trail. Took us 2 hours but we stopped at the end for half an hour and had some long photo stops plus watched the rock climbers. We took our shoes off and walked through the icy water to view the waterfall but it was so cold our feet hurt and it was not worth it. Better to climb up and look down at the waterfall.

Great family hike. We took the canyon in and The High Water Trail back. We got there by 10 am and no issues with parking. Highly recommend ankle support hiking boots/shoes, as there were a lot of loose rocks to walk on. We found the native markings on the rock wall and enjoyed the waterfall and inukshuks. Next time we will stay and do some fishing at the pond and pack a picnic.
