We did 18.5 km loop starting at northern entrance and not doing the escarpment offshoots , nor the spots in to camp.
The trail was under tall old growth trees for the majority of the hike. It was lovely! We crossed several streams , two rivers & unknown number of creeks (dry and moist).
This is not a hike for people wanting flat walking surfaces or cell service or even terrain . There were several climbs and descents every hour. There were trees to climb over, go under or walk around (at least three/km of trail). The views were of mossy forest floors, ferns, old trees, plethora of fungi and tonnes of toads. Some were so small!!

We easily did this hike in two days -1 overnight. We are not fast walkers, but steady. We cooled off in the Brookes and rivers. The hardwood stands felt like the rainforest with the amount of humidity they gave off.

Overall, totally worth it, but not a walk in the park.

I also hiked the devils elbow round trip to the falls and back. Definitely not for beginners. A lot of elevation changes with some fairly steep inclines. Take your time and bring lots of water. I'd definitely recommend though.

Great hike. Definitely need proper footwear. I would pack differently next time and go earlier in the day. I think the falls at the end would have been much more exciting in the spring or early summer. Definitely do it again.

Completed the Devils Bend portion of the trail. We did the return trip from Economy Falls. This trail is for the physically fit and to be taken seriously. There are lots of up and downs with fantastic scenery. there are also some interesting rock formations. It is really neat trail. Bring lots of water and some snacks. Enjoy.

In early June... hard to enjoy the scenery through the cloud of bugs. Some trees down across the trail made for a difficult time accessing Murphy Brook campsite. May have had a better time in the Fall.

Completed this hike just two days after a tropical storm hit the area. Completed the hike in a clockwise direction. First day involved rapidly changing elevations, several fording opportunities and a very wet dog. Camped overnight at Murphy Brook. Second day the morning started off with a few thunderstorms and rain. Hiked the remained of the trail in about 4 hours with 2 more fords. The entire hike was beautiful and had some really beautiful scenery. This hike should be for physically active individuals. I would recommend having at least one person with a decent amount of hiking experience to help guide your group.

Hard trail but well worth it. We did the full kenomee canyon in 8 hrs. Wide range of ecosystems and amazing views. Couple of river crossings so be careful of the time of year so you can pass them.
