Short and easy hike to a popular climbing area. Tons of sport climbing and bouldering.

Beautiful hike despite it being busy on a Saturday. Easy enough for everyone and so much to explore along the way! Great mix of sun and shade mid-day and lots of places to stop for a picnic on a rock.

We hit the trail at 8:30 am with three kids between 8&9. Parking lot was 1/2 empty at that time. By the time we returned at 11:30, parking was along the main roads and off ramps. It was so busy walking back, very hard to keep physical distance with the amount of people starting the hike. We loved the hike and took our time throughout. I’m so thankful that we didn’t come any later. We were able to enjoy most of it in solitude. I’ll definitely one back later in the fall to see the colour changes. My dog has been asleep for hours since coming home. She loved it, too.

Black bear spotted between Heart Creek Trail and Razors Edge 28th May 2020. Heart Creek Trail is an easy in and out trail following the creek up into the gorge, the traffic noise dies down 20 minutes after leaving the car park leaving you with nature and the sound of water! Recommend this hike for all levels.

A nice place for a good long hike. certainly kid friendly but no strollers.. loved the log bridges here and there and the trail is along the creek all through.. it was a busy weekend and parking was a problem.. suggest reaching early.. saw a lot of rock climbers along the way too...

Cute short walk along the creek. Very pretty and relaxing. Anyone can do this and it’s worth combining with Heart Mountain if you’re planning to do it.

decent easy hike. tho nothing special for the water fall. its tucked back in the canyon so you cant really see it. asked around if there were a better view spot. everyone said this was it.

Easy trail, great for kids. Go early to avoid crowds. We arrived around 9:00am on a Sunday and it was nice and quiet. By the time we got back to the parking lot around 11:00, there were tons of people.

Definitely should be rated as easy, but a great hike nonetheless. Beautiful scenery with a very rewarding waterfall by which to enjoy lunch.

Great hike! Many bridges back and forth across the creek, so beautiful!! Great for the dogs. Was quite crowded though making it a little hard to social distance properly.

Great hike. Go early if you are trying to keep your social distancing as the trail was busy as we left. Snow packed but not icy. Kids loves it.

We went while there was still a fair amount of ice. Even without crampons I found it quite manageable (granted I did slip a few times). It is a nice, quick hike with beautiful views.

My son and i spent the day together and did this hike yesterday. Not crowded, was super windy, a lot of icy spots, so a must to bring your ice spikes for your boots/shoes. But a beautiful hike to stop at the top, have a snack and head back.

Nice afternoon walk and very quiet. Fun to climb into the fall area at the end of the hike
