The first half of the trail through the forest is pretty flat & easy, except for paying attention to not trip on roots. Then the trail gets steeper as we climbed to the falls, which were outstanding. We stopped at the falls Lookout but the trail seemed to continue down to the base where we saw people on the rocks below.

The road to Wapta Falls was in dire need of repair. There are TONS of potholes so be aware so as not to damage your car. The trail to the falls was long and flat and muddy in the beginning, and towards the middle section was more varied with slight inclines and declines. Towards the end was some rather steep inclines, before descending to the viewpoint of the falls. The falls were pretty despite the brown waters, but the trail on the way there were not very scenic.
