A steep hike but well worth it!

The entrance to the trail is a bit hard to find. Drive up the gravel road and look for the orange ribbons tied around a post. The entrance is a bit past where the GPS will direct you to. Head down the trail through the forest. It can be a bit slippery if it has rained. There is a rope to hold onto for the last part of the trail where it is steepest. Once you get to the bottom you will be rewarded with a spectacular sight. One of the most beautiful waterfalls! I have visited a lot of waterfalls in my life and this one is right up there! It'll be a tiring hike back up the hill but to see this waterfall is so worth it!!!

To reach the falls, you must descend a steep hill, some of which requires holding onto a rope. It is well worth the trouble, but is not recommended for anyone that would have difficulty descending or ascending a long, steep hill.

Beautiful waterfalls! The last part of the descent to the falls is quite narrow overlooking a steep drop and involves holding onto a fixed rope, which might not be suitable for everyone.

I agree with’s a steep descent to the falls, and then a steep climb back up, so if a person has knee problems the trail is certainly not “easy”. However, the falls are beautiful, well worth a visit!

I would rate this moderate because the walk back is very steep, not necessarily easy for all ages. Other than that, one of my favourite hikes in Cape Breton, I've been multiple times.

Short but steep. Falls are worth it though.
