detour in effect due to logging, though no work being done so we took the marked trail on the way back.

Great hike and pretty intense. right now there is active logging in the area so there is a detour in place. The detour is well marked until the descent to the falls. There appears to be a few options to get down to the rope section of the falls, but the one I had taken was the straight down trail, which was a bit more difficult. New length with the detour is 5.5km and 230m of vertical.

where the trail kind of does the second fish hook on the map is where it begins to be poorly marked. I had my 5yr old and my dog and challenge wise we were able to do each section we came across, but when it got really not marked, about 1/2 way after the hook to the falls, I turned around for safety. Would love to see the falls from this side one day for sure! beautiful trail otherwise, I love wandering around the many other trails here.

The end of this hike is a scramble down to the falls. If you aren’t comfortable using ropes going down steep terrain then beware. I’ve attached photos for reference. My parents were not able to actually see the falls because the trail was too steep for them to maneuver. It’s unfortunate that no one has mentioned this before me, as there isn’t too much to see except trees and foliage for most of the hike. There is even a sign saying not to proceed down. All in all, the falls are very pretty if you can get down to them. Enjoy and be safe!

Bring gloves for the ropes down to the falls, great trek! Looks great for dogs to burn off energy too, just be aware of tree-falling work being done in the area.

beautiful trail, could see falls. there was a lot of trees down across the trail in some spots from the winter storm which meant we got pretty muddy and had to do some scrambling so just be prepared. there are many steep sections and there are spots with ropes to help ascend or descend. might be worth it to bring some though for some challenging spots without. took about 3.5 hours for our group of approx 15ppl with varying speeds. worth a repeat.

Beautiful trail and the falls are stunning. Though the trail down to the falls was nearly inaccessible. The recent storm brought down many trees blocking the entire path that zigzagged down the ravine. The only choice was to slide down the bank and try to grab onto tree roots until you got to where the trail had switched back. The trail down is short. Though there were four sections that had been blocked from falling trees. I suggest bringing ropes to assist you in climbing down. If you aren’t afraid to get a little dirty, it’s well worth the climb to see the falls!

It was definitely a good moderate workout as there as some very steep parts. I had read other reviews indicating the muddy area near the falls so I made sure to bring spare gloves which made the experience much more enjoyable.

Steeper then expected, ropes involved, slippery surface

Trail down to the water is closed but many were still going. It is a Rough trail down to the waterfalls with many routes that you need to hold on with. Great trail took about 40 minutes to get down to the falls.

great trail. brought my 3 year old had to hold her hand for a few spots because there was steep edges and lots of roots.

I enjoyed this walk very much. It was very muddy on the roped area down to the falls, the rope was quite muddy too. I could rinse my hands in the water at the bottom but wish i had something to clean my hands after climbing back up, just a bit of water and a napkin or something. Consider sticking something in your pocket. but it's definitely worth the climb down. I think this walk, even before the roped area would not accomodate a stroller, there's just too many roots. Had a great day!

Nice trail but if you're going all the way down to the falls I would definitely not rate this as easy. Very steep and slippery. Some ropes to aid you, my mom could not make it all the way down.

It’s wet in the winter but not bad trail, wouldn’t recommend it if elderly or with small children, there are some steep areas and drop offs.
