Amazing afternoon at the falls. This is a bit of a varied terrain hike, so be careful on the rocks if it's wet. Just follow the markers and you can't get lost. Make sure you cross the bridge and check out the other side. Might not be suitable for frail seniors, but lots of places to stop and catch your... More

This hike won't take you long (about an hour round trip) but the falls are beautiful especially in the fall when the leaves are turning color. The flies can be troublesome but if you keep moving they don't seem to bother you. Plan to eat lunch in your car or you will be swallowing bugs!

This is a very pleasant hike. The falls are beautiful and you've probably put on a little weight during your stay in Yellowknife so a little exercise sure couldn't hurt!

This short hike gives visitors a good idea of what the taiga is like with the bonus of a lovely, cascading waterfall at the end of it. The route is will marked and has the added bonus of stairs where they are most needed. Hike upstream once you get there and you will find a suspension bridge that takes you... More

We saw mixed reviews and wondered whether it would be worth the trip. It was! The views are beautiful. On the way, there was road construction and in a few places it was a little rough for a minute or two, but nothing to worry about. The trail was well marked and not too difficult. There are some steep and... More

The road to hidden lake is under construction and it takes a while to get here but it worth the trip. Beautiful view at the end of a 2km easy hike. Well marked trails take you in and you can spend some time on both sides of the falls.

Nice wilderness trail to a gorgeous waterfall with unique rock formations (wide stretches of rock to sun on or spread out a picnic) and not too strenuous for people whose knees are what they used to be. Two hours round trip max.

I went out to this hiking trail today. First, there is 4km of road that is under construction, and you have to drive over a road covered in "fist sized" rock. A lot of the rest of the road is gravel. When you get there, the beginning of the trail is very deceiving. It starts out flat and groomed, but... More

Cool to see- but getting there was a pain, as Ingraham trail is under construction currently. We rented a car and I'm not sure if the money (~$150) was worth the sight! If you have your own car, as long as it's a truck or SUV, I would go see it though.

The trail was easy to follow even in the winter.Good area to park and not a long hike to get to the Falls.
