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

Very good beginner "hike"

Really great beginner "hike." Got there around 10am and only passed two people on the trail up to the end. Had the whole little area at the end to ourselves besides two other people. Passed a ton of people on the way back. Way better to go early to avoid traffic. The bridges are really great. Lots of areas for photos

Great hike! Some parts were a bit narrow and you gotta be careful of the rocks. It sucks that you can't really see the waterfalls.

Fantastic scenery, not too difficult for the kids (age 8-11). The scramble to the falls after the last bridge is fun, challenging, and worth it in the end.

Really great for easy hikers who still want something a little more challenging than a packed down gravel path. We didn't see the waterfall because we weren't wearing the proper shoes to walk through the water, and my puppy was frightened by the running creek water, but next time we definitely will try to get in there to see it!

Great easy hike! Take the partly marked trail to the right of the last bridge (short but more difficult climb) to see the waterfall from the top and can continue on further! Nice drive from Calgary

Nice stroll through the forest and creek. Good for all fitness levels with some very pretty views. There were lots of beautiful dragonflies in the meadow which was a very nice surprise as well. I would definitely do this hike on a regular basis when needing some nature without using up too much time. ☺

Been on many walks, some very difficult but this one is very relaxing. Good for the family with some nice scenery.

Did this trail end of June. If you stick to the heavily trafficked trail you'll be disappointed as you don't see the waterfall so it's all about the journey. If you're feeling adventurous there's a semi-marked trail to the right of the last bridge right before the falls. If you follow this up the hill you'll get a nice view and the actual waterfall!
