HikingGreat!

I'm not totally sure where the falls are here, but the walk is great. Make sure you end with the North trail, as going the other way will result in a looooong uphill climb at the end of the hike. Lots of exposed rocks, roots and loose gravel so be careful. Not suitable for littles. Otherwise very beautiful. It was 18 today and everything smelled like sweet cedar wood.

Lovely walk - north side is prettier as view of the River majority of the way. South side is farther away from river - not as scenic. Dry trail and very few people

Great route for a spring hike! Trail was in good condition for spring. Muddy in some sections due to recent rains but nothing too cumbersome. Few people on route on either side of the river regardless of how gorgeous a day it was - but it is midweek. South side more challenging than North but overall a moderate hike with pretty lookouts throughout the hike. Will definitely return!

HikingGreat!

Beautiful trail and the scenery is also beautiful. It was a little muddy but not bad. I would certainly do it again.

Nice trail that follows river going up and then over trestle/bridge that loops back along river as well.

There is NO cell service at the trailhead so be prepared for that. You can do the loop in either direction. There are entrances to the trail on either side of the bridge near the parking. The half of the trail that starts at the trailhead with the map has more elevation gain and some switchbacks. There was some muddy sports and a little snow but nothing major. The views are beautiful of the rushing white water. We stopped and watched some kayakers playing in the white water. We had lunch on the picnic tables at the halfway point where the trestle bridge is. There is also a washroom there and a bike rack. We really enjoyed this hike and highly recommend it.

Beautiful hike, the water was so inviting to jump into. Still a lot of snow, wish I had taken my spikes with me since some parts were pretty slippery!

Great hike today. Sunny on the north side. South had bit of snow on boardwalks but not bad. No overly muddy only few sections which can walk around the worst. Beauty views of the rushing and flowing water

Amazing views along the way. There was mud and snow throughout but still doable. There was also bear tracks, took us about 3 hours. Will definitely be going back.
