A quick and easy hike, definitely family and pet friendly. Do not go to Nakiska as they’ll advise you to turn around. From Mount Allan Drive, turn right on Stoney Trail which descends into the parking lot. Can start at the trailhead in the trees or take the clearing and then left to get to the falls. I recommend going to the upper falls after. Trail is well used and marked. Very scenic with several mini water falls.

Did this hike 3 days ago. There was a lot of traffic, be careful of some icy and some muddy parts. There was a girl that fell on the hike a little while ago and it paralyzed now. The hike isn’t hard at all.

Absolutely amazing for a family friendly hike. Definitely go to the upper falls to see the many levels of the waterfall. Spectacular! We had gone first week of Sep and it was great weather. Had a bunch of boys and 3 toddlers within the group and they all managed to walk to the lower and upper falls although it can be challenging for little legs for sure.

Steep walk for the first 20 minutes but totally worth it and easy the rest of the way. Very rewarding the whole time. Every part is super beautiful.

Easy hike, worth the walk and beautiful sights.
We did the Troll Falls (you can climb up to the water fall) and also the Upper falls hike (although it is not currently maintained, it is very safe to do).
When you get to the parking in the trail head, make sure you make a left to the woods immediately or you will end up walking several miles in the Stoney Trail.

It was raining and starting to slick up so we didn’t go past the first falls. But what a great walk with kids on a cold and rainy Saturday.

Great hike. Easy to do, fun to explore. Great pay off. I definitely suggest continuing past the first falls. You can go in behind the upper falls and it has spectacular views. Not sure if there is a direct path but we wound up doing some unintentional rock climbing to get up there. Well worth it.

Easy walk- I wouldn’t even call it a hike. I think anyone could do it. Nice forest views and the waterfall at the end was pretty. It’s a trail I would go running on.

Excellent short hike for kids. Even saw a person with a motorized wheelchair at the lower falls. We decided to go the extra bit to the Upper Falls.

Took our 19 month old on this trail and he had a blast throwing rocks into the water! Got here at 2 PM and parking wasn’t an issue. We tried to go to the upper falls but got a bit tricky as our son was tired of the baby carrier!

Excellent family hike. My kids really enjoyed this one. Well worth it to keep going past the first waterfall and seeing the next few. The kids really liked the one you can go behind

I've been here twice to train my kids, lol, the firts did it when she was 4.5yo and she was a terrible walker... this was in summer; then i did it with my 3yo closer to spring, and she was not tired at all, the snow was pretty compact and she gkt ridnof her snowshoes... perfect beginner scenary with a rewarding fall, we actually liked it better in winter, kids though it was the best slide they had ever seen and played lol!

The signage as to which trail is which could be better.
Overall very nice walk, the falls are so refreshing; plus, the dog enjoyed splashing/drinking in the shallow parts.
If you take the Hay Meadows/Stoney Trail up to Troll Falls there’s pretty little stroll beside the the Riveruu where you can spot some cool birds.

Very rewarding easy hike. Did it as a family with our 4 kids. Great waterfalls all the way along to on the upper falls trail as well.
