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.

I did this hike in mid-July about two years ago. It's a great place to catch the sunset (or just visit when the sun is low in the sky.) It's really well marked and we didn't see another soul on it. We did two-nights in row. We had a local friend show us the cliff jumping spot. I would NOT... More

Hiking or snowshoeing on this lovely trail. The snow was crisp and even, the sky blue, the air fresh and brisk. The falls themselves of course were frozen, but that did not matter. You can still hear the rushing water underneath. You might be lucky to see ptarmigan and even a fox.

We must be slow hikers - we took much longer than others indicate, but we were leisurely & stopped often to admire & photograph the scenery & flora along the trail. We packed a lunch - ate by the river on the smooth washed rocks. Serene. Then over the amazing bridge & we hiked along the other side of the... More
