Excellent short hike. Good for beginners.

3 days ago

Great place for viewing and taking a quick soak by the water. Really cold though !! Sure wakes you up. Some areas are really steep. Dog had to enable its 4 paw drive to get around. May be difficult for little kids.

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!!!

Incredible hike. The views start relatively early in the hike, so it’s worth doing even if you only want complete a short part of it. The views at the top are absolutely stunning. One of my favorites.

Beautiful hike, makes for a good day trip. It’s a fairly easy hike and has rewarding views at the top! Would recommend!

Decent hike with some scrambling and a little bit of climbing. Proper footwear is a must, poles and gloves to protect your hands are a good idea. The trail isn’t well marked but you can basically take any way up that suits your level. Try to stay to the left towards the top to make it to the peak. After you park on the lake side of the highway in the large parking lot, you cross the road and can see the trailhead easily.

Great trail. Well marked with orange and pink tape. well warn in. Lots of places to camp if you want to break up the hike but can be done in one day. On arrival there are a few group sites and single sites. At the far end of the lake there are more sites and bear food hangers. i would recommend this hike for sure. Well fit hiking boots or shoes and poles are a must. Have fun hiking.

Amazing Falls!! A couple steep parts but not to bad..... did miss the sharp turn and ended up walking down the river.... definitely would do it again

Trail to the falls is closed due to wild fire. :( you cant even cross the suspension bridge. So check trail report first before you head there.

Nice travelled path but didn't feel like I was just walking on a trail. Lots of wide areas to rest and good view at the end.

Nice easy trail with some fun creek drainage bouldering toward the top. Left trailhead at 9:45am and our group was the 2nd group up. Great little scramble to the enormous and cool cave at top. By the time we finished lunch and we’re headed down, the trail was packed with hikers. (Stopped counting after 70). Good views, but take a flashlight for the cave.

Did that hike on a whim while driving on the ice field park ways, and this was a great decision! Relatively quick ascent for stunning views of the glaciers, far from the tourist crowd on the road (even if a lot of people climb this path). Kinda cold and windy but worth it :)

Pretty casual hiking up to the hoodoos, from there you could continue up the creek to the cave. We decided to ascend the slope to the south, there’s a bit of a trail to start and then you’ll have to scramble up some shale but when make it to the top of the ridge the view is incredible.

A bit busy to the first set but that's where most families stop. The views are amazing! Well worth some difficult areas on the way to the 2nd and 3rd sets of falls.

I did this hike in 2016, and 2017. I plan to hopefully do the hike again in 2018. It was brutal on my first time, which also happened to be my first time ever doing a back country hiking and camping trip. I had started to wonder if it was a mistake to do this hike and was regretting it. It has since become my favourite place to camp and I try to make the trip at least once a year. The trail can be a little confusing at certain points. It takes me about 7 hours to hike in, and less to hike out. I recommend hiking to sentinel creek to camp out before heading out early the next day to get a good head start on the trail.

A very worthwhile hike. Not very strenuous. Be prepared to dodge fellow humans but at least the bugs are far and few between. Great views from most of the trail but the best when you reach the very top.

Amazing views throughout this hike! Wilcox ridge is a must for an amazing view of the ice fields.

it is fun easy and a nice walk for the dogs, great for kids

Nice walk through the forest, with nice views of some ponds. Small hills make for an easy walk.

Great easy hike in to first falls about 4 km. Apparent second falls is very small, and mixed information on third falls. Some on here suggested to go see it. On the trail, another couple said they couldn't find it. The front desk at our resort said it was an overnight hike. We turned back at about 5 or 6 km. The river is beautiful. Best hike of the week for my wife and I.

Did with my wife. It was a nice hike. Another person on here advised to park at transfer station, walk aound the fence, and you'll come to trailhead sign. Glad for that cause we almost left. Coming back, we missed the sharp turn back up into the forest...walked along the river and realized that we had to backtrack. Oh well, a little adventure for the day.

A must do hike when travelling along the David Thompson. There is one incline of note other than that, the trail is mostly flat. It’s a great hike for people of all ages. It is a busy trail so you’ll likely run into others. The trek to the 2nd and 3rd falls is much quieter and more serene... worth it.

A great trail to start on, fairly flat with slight inclines. A few areas were washed out, and finding the trail again was a bit tricky but manageable. The trail to the first set fall was quite busy and trickled off a bit going further. Would recommend going to the third fall.

A large community of runners who access the mapped 6.8km double track as well as the many kilometers of single track off of the beaten trail.

Challenging trail but beautiful and scenic. Definitely want to do this one again and next time make it to the cave.

on Siffleur Falls

Amazing view of the canyon! It is something that I could look at all day long. It never gets old.

Did this as a evening/sunset summit. So much fun with varying degrees of scramble - and first time ever coming down a mountain in the dark with headlamps - loved it. Would definitely do this again!

Nice trail, short but worth it especially looking back at the majestic view of Abraham Lake. Lots of loose rocks making it a slower pace.

Beautiful trail through the trees to a perfect lake. You have to hop around in spots to avoid mud (we were hiking in tennis shoes).

The trail was very rooted and mucky. While not a difficult trail; it was very tedious. No birds or wildlife spotted during our hike and not at all scenic until we reached the lake. Beautiful Glacier lake and views once we arrived.

Don’t let the sign at the trail fool you. “Easy Stroll” Not!
