The falls are impressive. Some spots are a bit of work but definitely worth it. Some spots at the far end of the trail are a bit washed out but not too bad.

This was a great hike to get your heart rate going, take in some amazing scenery, technical and challenging enough and greatly rewarding, emotionally, physically and spiritually.

What trail? Well marked but you're climbing up and down rocky terrain, come close to the edge at times to get to the bridge. Gorgeous falls and beautiful views. Sad that some morons think writing their names or other messages on the rocks is ok

A rocky start down from the main parking lot but awesome views along a powerful river.

The yellow sign passing the bridge was pointing the wrong direction. We reached the river by following the sign and it was dangerous to climb back up. We saw a big branch falling down right beside us, which is also dangerous.

Great trail that goes along the falls. Lots of rocks at the beginning so good foot wear is recommended. The loop part of the trail is nothing special.

Easy to moderate trail beginning on rocks so hiking shoes recommend especially when wet. Lovely scenic walk alongside a series of waterfalls to an overlooking bridge, then a calm 1km loop through a forest (no lookouts).

This is a great trail. It is short but moderate with lots of rocks, change in elevation, and many things to see.

Never disappointed with this trail... the falls are so nice to explore.. although starting to be to much graffitis! Go there a couple of times a year! Easy access to the falls is from the sand hill instead of the main area!

One of Sudbury's finest scenic spots. This waterfall is beautiful and accessible year round. It is especially lovely in the winter! Drive past the main parking lot to the sand/sliding hills just north of the main gate. Plenty of parking and hills for sliding. Snowshoes or snow cleats are a must if you plan on taking the trail down to the bottom of the falls.
