Challenging hike with lots of steep and rocky places along the trail. Numerous spots along the way for great photos of the creek and falls. Beautiful view of the valley from the top. Very buggy so bring nets, bug spray or do as I did and just keep moving! * Please Note: Currently there is no informational signage about the surrounding area as the NCC has removed them all.

Very intense for novice hikers, but the river can be used to cool off , views are fantastic and trail never gets boring.

We dressed in long sleeves and hiking pants and sprayed for mosquitos, black flies etc. And we saw few! Most of the trail was marked fairly well. We had 4 instances on the return back where we were off path, met other people looking too, but in a short period found our way again. The terrain initially and at the end requires you to watch your steps very closely. You don't want to fall onto jutting rocks or exposed roots! Take your time for sure. I will come back in a different season, it's great outdoor exercise!

Best in the area! Your legs take a pounding on the way down but worth it for the views.
