You don't need to be a regular hiker. Is about 30 minutes out of town. Trail actually begins at the "Hidden Lake" parking area and will take about 45 minutes until you get to the falls. Well worth it... Watch for bears in the summer. Just travel as a group.

My wife and I hiked to the falls last week following a large snowfall. The trees were covered in snow making it quite the serene walk. We were the first and only ones out there that day so we had the trail to ourselves. What a beautiful site the river is in the winter. There are a couple of tricky... More

We did this hike in about 6" of snow. Was a lot of fun though. About 4km round trip. What a beautiful hike! There are lots of stairs and fairly steep slopes to climb. A little slippery in spots.

The view of the falls and the trek over the rocky terrain is worth the mosquito bites. Be sure to wear good hiking shoes.

This is a beautiful place to visit. It is quite a drive, but well worth it. It's a very long walk, & not very well maked but the scenery makes it all worth while.

Plan an hour and a half; bring a picnic to eat at the top of the falls.Make sure to take the left trail from the parking lot and go all the way, crossing the bridge to the north side

We have joined My Backyard Tours for the visit. As there are bears in the days before, we have a visit to another trail nearby. Our tour guide, John is extremely friendly, experienced and knowledgeable. Margaret's lunch box is also fantastic and delicious for picnic in such a great and beautiful scenery. This is an excellent hike although the water... More

The colours of the fall, which are abundant on this trail in the middle of September, makes this hike great. The trail is easy, well marked with little gain elevation. Don't forget to bring your bear bell, as recently a bear has been spotted around the Cameron falls.

A very pretty hike, but lots of up and down, and the trail is uneven (2 of the 7 in our group fell on the hike). If you do go, you should at least make it to the bridge that spans the river. Very pretty views. The water was very low in Sept. 2015, and the waterfall was just a... More

Even though the water levels were low, this was an excellent hike. Beautiful scenery, well cared for trail, and a great destination! The road was gravel for the last bit and we worried a little about the rental car getting dinged but no problems.
