Did this hike October 1st. The fall colours were spectacular. Even after reading reviews, there was a little confusion getting there. I drove up the road to the upper parking lot, and there were a bunch of people parked at a spot that separates into 2 atv roads. I assumed this was the upper parking lot. But actually the road goes left and continues for a while. It's fairly flat and not difficult to do on foot, like I did, but it is quicker if you keep going. There is a sign at the upper parking lot.

Poorly marked trail but marked nonetheless, just have to keep your eyes peeled. Once you pass the old logging road the trail is marked very well with ribbons and little inukshuks. Steep as hell but worth the climb. Definitely make sure to hike up to Brew Hut from lake for the 360 views.

Very pretty waterfall. I suggest continuing on to the bungee bridge, its an easy and pretty hike.

This trail is beautiful once you start on the trail head, however you have to walk about 2.5 km on the train track from the Brandywine falls parking , south direction, to access the trail head. You have to bush walk to access the train track. If you blink you will miss the access to the trail. It is an extremely steep terrain, the use of poles is highly recommended. Because of time restraints, we turned around after 1 km of uphill. GPS a MUST!

This trail is really poorly marked. You spent 2.8 km heading out on an illegal route following along the CN railway tracks. Then the trailhead starts at this point to the right not very clearly marked. The trail is very steep from the onset. Very beautiful though. We turned around after 1/2 hour as we waisted so much time just getting to the trailhead. Almost 6 km of the hike is walking on a train track wondering where you will jump to when the next train comes along.

As the last review mentions, the old route to the meadows has not been maintained. If you continue driving to the upper parking lot, you will be able to traverse the new trail to the meadows. This is maintained nicely and a much shorter hike then the hour long old trail. Once in the meadows, it's a meandering stream and amazing views of Brandywine mountain. If you are feeling energetic, you can ascend to the top!

This trail is definitely not moderate. The road up to the trail head is gravel with potholes and rock outcroppings for the last two kilometres. Although the trail head is well marked the trail itself does not exist. We followed orange and pink flags for the first 0.3 miles before they disappeared. The climb was navigated up moss, packed pine needles, over logs, branches and stumps without any specific direction. Eventually another flag was noted at 0.4 miles. At that point we decided to cut our losses and go elsewhere. The hike down the mountain was not any better, as it was difficult to navigate the moss-covered terrain. Hopefully it would be better for others, but it is a hard difficult trek up to the meadows which we never saw. I can imagine it being worst if there had been any recent precipitation.

Easy trail from spectacular falls to another gorge. You know you are close when you hear the bungee jumpers screaming!
