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.

Did this in late March so there was a fair amount of snow and you had to hike into the trailhead so add another 2 miles to this length. It was an intense waterfall and very magical in the winter. Highly recommended for a nice winter hike

Nice little hike to the waterfalls. We did this a while ago. I always remember it because ,my wife got soaked in the rain. We had a nice time though.

A pleasant walk to the Wapta falls, if it's a super hot day, you want to get close to the falls to cool off in the mist.

A small and easy hike but well worth it ! Bring rain gear if your planning to get close !

Bring a poncho with you so you don't get wet if you want to get closer to the waterfall.

Great hike to an amazing waterfall but it should be noted as you make your way down to the bottom it does get pretty steep in some places and you spend lots of time watching out for tree roots.
