Scenic trail and rich in history, a lot of traffic when I was there. Easy hiking with some short, moderate inclines. great views from the back side of the long loop. Great hike if you have an hour or two to kill.

Really isn’t worth the stop. You can only see above the falls. And the trail up doesn’t give much of a view either. Good if you need to stretch your legs, but that’s about it.

short hike to lame falls. wouldn't recommend. instead follow the sign right to upper loop of Pocahontas mine trail for incredible viewpoint over Athabasca River.

There are actually 2 trails that arrive at punch bowl falls . The punch bowl falls trail listed here begins in the campground. We were not able to access this trailhead because we were not registered campers. So we took the Coal mine trail that starts close to the Pocahontas cabins.
The first third of this trail is a significant incline , middle third is level walk , last third is downhill. Great view after the incline . The trail is full of character through the spruce forest . However, the falls were anticlimactic. If you have an 1 1/2 of time it's something to do.
