Great easy hike! My dogs love it! Doesn't take long but is a nice walk. Does get quite busy recently, so head out early or later in the afternoon

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.

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.

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

5 min drive from my house so I take my dog every morning! Great exercise hike, just wish it was a bit longer (takes about 25 mins) - can extend by doing it twice (forward/backward). Starts getting busy around 9am in summer, bit later in spring/fall. Bugs are bad in the evening in summer. Quite icy in winter but can do with ice cleats.

Very basic hike, but I enjoy escaping to here once or twice a year. Great if you don’t want anything strenuous, or are physically limited or have small children! Fun to walk around with your thoughts if it’s not too busy and there are some nice small waterfalls!

This is a nice, short walk that's not too far out of Calgary. An easy place to bring folks who aren't used to hiking; very family friendly. There was a big group having a BBQ at the base of the trail the day we went - lots of kids splashing in the water and parents chatting around the picnic tables.

Another quick, easy hike for the family new to hiking. I love coming here in the fall when the leaves are changing. Makes for beautiful pics. Lovely falls near the beginning of the trails. Fun for kids.

Arrived around 10:15 am on a Sunday and parking lot was almost full. Trails were not too busy though. This is a nice easy short walk. I brought my puppy and she loved the trail. It was muddy in some spots but not too bad. I have done this trail in almost every season and it’s beautiful every time!

Nice easy hike for pretty much anyone. You can choose your path based on your skill level. Great history to be seen from the old butter churn.

Was there mid July. Was very busy. Nice place for a hot summer day if you have a couple hours to drive minutes outside the city.

Well shaded. Waterfall was beautiful. Went on a Friday evening and it wasn't very busy. Took us just under an hour with the pups.

Very busy . Not a hike , more like a quick walk in the park. Very beautiful though. Would be nice to pack a munch and sit along side the stream

Not really a hike. Nice place for a little stroll with the kids if you have any I guess. Busy if you come around noon and on weekends. **Bring the big spray!** Beautiful waterfall.
