went here yesterday. A beautiful hike but ran into a Grizzly bear about half way in. We left in a hurry.

This was a fun little hike. Make sure you take the proper trailhead out of there parking lot! There is an unmarked one along the creek that we almost took because there were so many people using it. The correct railhead is clearly marked. You have to cross the highway but after that it’s a lovely hike. Road noise disappears after the first hill. Lovely views! We brought a 2 1/2 year old and she completed the whole thing with no issues. There are a couple of little bridges and the waterfall at the end is really pretty. You can swim in the pool at the base of the waterfall but the water is ice cold!

We decided to do this hike because it's short and pretty, having all the wildfire smoke and an asthmatic family member, this was enough to have our nature fix!
its a really easy hike, my 3 year old had cero problem to do it from beginning to end. park at the day use area and cross the highway on foot.

A great introduction to hiking for my 7 year old. Challenging enough with a beautiful waterfall reward.

great little hike. Takes less then an hour. We found that the signage wasn't greatest for the trail. It starts at the back lot on the north side.
The falls are beautiful at the end and a quick dunk in the pool is refreshing. You can always go through the meadow to make this an even easier hike

Super short hike but the falls at the end are nice . I brought my little dog so definitely an easy hike.

Very easy hike, my grandparents could do it. Beautiful scenery, falls were lovely and the kids loved playing in the freezing cold water.

Short and beautiful hike with an amazing waterfall at the end. The view along the way was amazing. The bridge has been replaced and we had no problem getting to the waterfall. Definitely a hidden gem of kananaskis.

Trail was beautiful with a gorgeous waterfall at the end. Challenge crossing the river twice with 2 small kids and a small dog but all in all a lovely hike. Bring your bathing suit!

Super easy, quick hike in to the falls. The bridges are gone so we had to ford the creek twice (knee deep).

Beautiful view but the bridge to the falls was taken out and we never got to see them. That was disappointing as it’s why we chose this hike. The path was nice though!

One of my favorite hikes, it’s easy enough for the whole family! And still is such beautiful scenery throughout! The waterfall at the end is so pretty!

Great for kids! Spent almost 2 hours playing around the waterfall. 5 kids (age 8, 6, 6, 4 and one year old in a backpack) and only took about 30-40 min one way. Looks like construction might have the trail starting at a different part because we didn't cross the road and little hill to climb at the start, but kids all managed just fine!

Great hike for kids! Short, has interesting signs about the forest and history of the area along the way. Two small bridges with the falls at the end where your kids can splash and play. Great hike to bring swim clothes and an extra pair of dry after you're all done.

If you're feeling a bit more adventurous, just before you go over the two bridges, there's a small fire pit camp area to the left. There's a trail on the back end that if you follow it up the hill and then down the other side, you're able to follow the creek and enjoy several different waterfalls. Very enjoyable.

Short quick hike. Not hard. Nice small waterfall at the end. We climbed up the bank on the left from the viewing area to a ridge above the canyon had lunch and followed a very easy trail back down to the main one - if you want to add some time to the hike.

Not challenging, well carved path, and took me less than an hour to complete. It was a nice view at the end and at some of the higher points in the hike but I would not do it again.

the loop to the head of the trail was closed due to flood erosion, so it took a few minutes for us to find the trail. nice easy hike for children and adults. we enjoyed the placards with information about the area and history.
