How can you not give this wonderful place a 5! My wife and I took our son and daughter in law to the park, they have just moved here from the prairies, and this is one of our favourite places to hike. We began our hike and did a number of the different trails, there are quite a few, of... More

If you want to get out and enjoy a hike, head to this spot. Beautiful evergreen forest with lots of hiking trails wind around the falls. Picnic tables are available for day use. Great place to check out

This is truly a spectacular swimming spot. Water is cool and refreshing, lots of spots to splay out a towel and hang around. Plenty of hiking and biking too if that's your thing. I found this place a bit difficult to get to though - there are numerous access points and some are more convenient than others. I entered by... More

When you finally get to the falls when you look to the left, it is the falls just disappearing into a fairly small opening and the right is the river that seems... More

We had a nice picnic in a beautiful shaded area. A pleasant walk through the trees and a beautiful view from the bridge. It was a hot day, but on this walk we did not notice the heat. The falls were beautiful. Go find it! You won't be disappointed.

We started out by having our picnic lunch in there picnic area. Lots of room, picnic tables in a covered area. Water faucet near by which was convenient. The trails were clearly marked. Walked to the upper falls and lower falls. Beautiful!

A beautiful walk through the trees and around the falls. Would suggest a person wear good walking sandals or running shoes for the walk, as the ground is uneven and rocky in spots. For anyone who has difficulty walking distance or uphill, would recommend that they not do the full walk as they may experience difficulties. Very peaceful and enjoyed... More
