From HWY 1 at HWY 40, go left and head south on HWY 40. Proceed for 25 km on the 40 and turn right at the Kananaskis Village Turnoff. Drive straight and take the first right turnoff which is a gravel road to the Stoney Trail Day Use Area.

Nice hike for a beginner. Temp minus 21, no wind. The trail was in excellent shape. Love the waterfalls

Nice little winter hike. I used crampons but could probably do with just some good boots. On a nice day people were pouring in at around noon. Get there early to enjoy the solitude.

Went snowshoeing with my parents. It’s a beautiful trail and well travelled. So you could hike it with a good pair of boots. However, this time of year, snowshoes or crampons will make it easier; especially when you’re around the falls as the ice can be slippery.
Overall a great short hike, very pretty, lots of other trails around, and great to do with family (young or old).

So much fun! The falls are frozen on the outside and still flowing in the middle. Be careful if you follow the trail up to the top of the falls as it’s very difficult to tell where solid ground is and where thin ice on the river begins.

We originally had planned to snowshoe, thought it would be good and easy for our first shoe of the season. However everything was pretty packed down so we walked it, I recommend walking if you want to see all of the other hidden falls, there is no way you could climb and get through the trail with snowshoes or skis. Great fun, super easy, and the falls are beautiful frozen.

nice easy trail.. multiple trails in the same area.. Seen some gray jays around the trail

Excellent hike with small kids or seniors. My 3.5 yr old was able to hike the entire route with a pack on. Yes it’s busy, but kids don’t mind. No place where you picnic at the falls in case you’re looking to do that.

Nice easy walk to the falls, if you want to go to the top it's a bit tougher, steep narrow little path. Will definitely be doing this little hike again, beautiful scenery but lots of people.

when you arrive at the at the first falls there is a path if you go left along side the rock face. This can be challenging for youngsters as the way up is steep but the way down is the tricky part. At the top you overlook the first falls and have to cross over a sketchy troll bridge. after that there are two more falls that i found with the last one you can go behind and have water cascade from above. explore and good luck
