Awesome hike with an amazing waterfall at the end. The trail follows a constant downhill grade right to the falls (2.2 miles). It gets a little steep at the end but still quite manageable. Not too difficult as long as you are agile and somewhat in shape. Once you reach the stream, keep going down and towards the left. (This part is a bit tricky but not too bad). After a couple minutes, you will reach the waterfall! The hike back is all uphill. At a steady pace, this entire trip (including a 25 minute break at the falls) took us a total of 1 hour 50 minutes (4.4 miles) Totally worth it!

Not for the faint of heart, it’s a fair trek in and out and not to be underestimated. It’s one of my favorites partly because of the waterfall, but it’s definitely not an easy hike.

Nice trail with a steady descent to the falls. Demanding climb back out almost the whole way, but my 7 and 9 year olds did it. If you are confident your kids are good hikers, should be ok. My Strava recording said it was 8.9 kms, and 196m of elevation though - different than the description says.

This trail starts out easy, but there is a steep decent to get near the falls. This makes the way back more of a workout! The falls are a must-see when in Fundy National Park! The view from where the trail ends is great, but it gets even better when you (carefully) make your way down to the little area right in front of the falls.

You think it's pretty easy when you're starting out. then you just keep dropping in elevation. It was a great workout with the bonus of spectacular scenery.

Very nice trail within the Fundy National Park. Takes about 1 hour to get to the 16 m waterfall. The only tricky part is toward the end which has some steep sections. There was still some snow near the bottom at the end of May...
