The path to the falls is tricky to find. Look for cairn topped with a small inushuk on your left side and if you look closely 'FALLS' is painted in blue on one of the rocks. Short path to falls through the trees from there.

Beautiful easy day hike, with very little elevation gain once you get to Elbow lake.

Nice hike. Not too strenuous. The falls at the end were a nice pay off for the hike. It was a little steep getting down to the falls so I would not take small children to this part of the hike.

Great scenic trail! Starts off with a short but steep climb to Elbow Lake which took us about 30 mins. Then if you keep walking about 3kms past the lake on the trail, you'll come across a pile of rocks on the left side made by fellow hikers with 'Falls' written on the rocks. Just follow that narrow path thru the trees to see the beautiful Edworthy Falls! Took us about an hour to reach the falls from Elbow Lake but we were going at a slower pace so you may be able to do it quicker.

Falls were awesome. Pretty rocky most of the way. More lakes and a glacier nearby.

A jewel just off the Elbow Trail. Amazing that more people don't know about this. Not a hard hike to get to it. Definitely scramble through the bush upstream from the Falls to find some very cool rapids.
