Was a great day! But writing to advise there is a small fresh moose carcass at the falls. Pretty ominous, even though it looks like he fell down the cliff. Make lots of noise if you plan to go, predators will be out.

Mountain bikingGreat!Icy

Fun little trail. With the gate closed for the winter, we half biked and half hiked up the road. The road was nicely melted for the first two km and then a bit of a snowy, icy mess for the next three and we had to ditch the bikes and walk to the trailhead. The actual trail had previously been snowshoed so it was well enough packed down that we easily walked it with hiking shoes. Looking forward to coming back in the summer.

January 29/21- I wanted to see the falls frozen. So we walked the 5:5 km up the road to trail head. It was a warm blue sky day. The falls were cool to see frozen and to hear the water running below ice is so calming. A lovely day. 13.65 walk total

Great for a quick jog to the fall. Lovely easy and cute path. But very icy right now. Not a bad idea to pack the yaktrax. Also if you like solitude on a hike this is not the one. But it’s very accessible for kids and dogs because it’s so short, so it’s always packed. Also shout out to the person at the fall who watched me fall while standing stone still and asked me if I was okay but didn’t laugh. You’re the real mvp!

Short hike to Cat Creek Falls. We carried on above the falls and never saw any one else. Made a loop along the ridge heading west.

No one on the trail when we set out. Saw one couple at the falls but they left when we arrived. On the way back the trail was packed with families. Definitely recommend getting out early to have some peace at the falls.

Kids friendly hike. Great views on the way. Carry bear spray as there was signage at the trail head. Nice little waterfall at the end. Overall, great rewarding hike for very little effort.

Nice little hike. Easy to do with a family. The trail is in good condition. Old miners town/settlements lived here. I’ve even found old metal pieces of that time. The water fall at the end is beautiful. Worth bringing a towel and change of clothes to jump in.
