The Falcon Creek Self-Guiding Trail is a short 2.2 km loop trail, just a short drive from Falcon Lake townsite off the Trans Canada Highway, next to the Falcon Beach Ranch.

The trail follows over the rocky landscape and through forested areas. There was one very large rock positioned along the trail that was deposited there by glaciers back in the day, from the receding ice, which was interesting to see. You can also spot lots of quartz veins in the rocks along the trail.

This trail was scenic and had great views and beautiful nature along the way. Would recommend!

Short and scenic. The falls weren’t really falls, more a trickling stream, but the hike itself is nice.

Nice walk with interpretative signs about the trees. The forest is very beautiful and reminds of the beginning of the Snowwhite movie! The short version is really short, it’s fine to follow the mountain bike signs for a longer hike.

Very easy to follow. Trail is nothing special but the view at the end is nice.

We did this trail yesterday. Its an easy walk on what is largely a gravel road that runs from the falcon trail resort to high lake. An enjoyable walk that does have you in full sun for most of the hike.

The trail is technically still closed from the 2016 flooding. If you don’t mind getting a wee bit muddy at the start of the trail, you will be rewarded with a winding trail with changes in terrain and incline.

I did this trail last year but some parts were inaccessible because there was too much water. This time, we could make it entirely.
It's a very great trail with beautiful scenery! I deduct one star because at one point, it's not well marked and instead of following the blue and pink ribbons near number 7, we went straight inside the bush and got lost... you need to take a turn ascending instead.

LOVE this trail! So scenic and nice and challenging!

A bit aggressive pick for this ol’ flatlanders first hike, but proud of doing 9 kms.!

One of my favourites. I don’t agree with the rating of Easy as the trail is in a state of disarray, with many fallen trees over the very overgrown, poorly marked path. Navigating the bog without getting feet wet is always a highlight, as well as scaling the short granite walls. It’s no Hunt Lake, but if you don’t have the time for that trail, don’t pass up on the Bear.

We are novice hikers, but we really enjoyed this trail. We were underprepared (not nearly enough water, bad shoes that made the hike back painful), and had underestimated the distance somewhat, so learn from our mistakes! The trail was enjoyable with lots of fun rock climb sections and neat changes of scenery; I’m grateful we are able to do those. Total: about five hours hike time in (to the shelter) and out, with a nice 30 minute break in the middle.

No longer lightly used, many people on the weekends

Amazing trail loved it, great views !!

This was an excellent trail very few flat spots lots of incline and decline. We did it with our four and six-year-old kids it took us an hour and a half. They loved it and we will definitely do it again

Did the trail 1 Sept 2018, loved it !! I took the trail from the parking lot all the way to the picnic area and back, Strava said 5.4km. Amazing trail, beautiful scenery.

Great, challenging hike with beautiful views! Expect alternating terrain, lots of roots and broken rock. Go for a swim at the end!

This is a real gem. My favourite hike in Manitoba. Don’t let the fact that it’s in a prairie province fool you. Took us 4.5 hours with minimal breaks. Perfect for an active dog. Bring water!

First multi day backpacking trip for my husband and I. Couldn’t have asked for better weather, trail was mostly dry and no ticks. Completed in 3 full days. Camped at north Marion the first night and Mantario the second. No bear sightings for us but heard from a few others on the trail they spotted a few.

South trail was definitely more challenging (end we began) with lots of ups and downs, trail after Richie lake heading to north trailhead was a breeze in comparison. Would highly recommend, and will do it again!

short trail, very easy. on the map there is a split, it says falls to the left and a river to the right. we searched everywhere for the trail to the falls but could not find it, so we took the right trail, it just ends. still fun, a little disappointing we couldnt find the falls.

nice trail, not too long, was very wet anf flooded when we did it but we didnt mind getting a little dirty. cute little falls

Hunt Lake is my favourite trail in Manitoba. If you're looking for more of a challenge this is the perfect hike! It took us 5 hours to complete (allow 6 hours). Lots of steep inclines & declines & some rock climbing. The end is a little shack where you can write/carve your name! Also has some back country campsites. Be cautious of bears in the area (though I have never encountered one on this trail). Enjoy!

great trail. loved the terrain. the short loop could be better marked where it forks but overall had a great hike.

Great trail! Some areas were a little poorly marked but we made it in the end. Good mix of terrain. Trail map says it takes 3 hrs, at a good pace you can do it in under 2.

It is a great trail, but a little bit confusing trying to get to the falls from the marked area as the path seems to disappear. Bugs were out even though it was very hot, and some parts of the trail could be more difficult if you are not use to hiking with giant bolders and steep inclines. One of the best things was wild blueberries, they were delicious.

beautiful trail, went late April there was still snow in the majority of the trail which made things slippery. Suggested good footwear with good grip if going at this time of year.

Great trail with challenging up's and downs, the view was beautiful and a great lunch spot at the end. On the way back to hunt lake found the trail wasn't well marked. Did it at a leisurely pace in about 6 hours with stops and with bringing my dog.

nice hike with moderate elevations along the river.

Great day for a hike. Took my son (12) and finished the trail in around 5 hours (2:06 in, and more leisurely out). Trail was challenging, but in great shape and very well marked.

There's a bog right near the start that got the feet a little bit wet but they were mostly dry by the trails end. There's a nice little lookout at the end with a firepit that's a great place to have a lunch and fish from. Lost the trail at the end on the way back and had to hike through the bog.

would rate this trail closer to moderate rather than easy just because of the short but intense inclination in parts of the trail. I did this hike when it was raining all day for the entire hike. some of the views this hike offers are amazing as well as the information markers along the way. we had a bit of difficulty spotting some of the trail markers but it might just be because of the weather that day. love this hike!
