The trail is nice and you better have running shoes or hiking shoes. Bring water and a sandwich if you want to stay long. Beautiful views of the River and Falls. Natural setting; ideal to escape the city and enjoy nature. Be careful of bears. The trail is pretty easy but prior to reaching the falls you're going up and... More

I went to cameron falls to have a bit of an immersion in the Canadian shield country. That was the ideal spot to get a feel for it. About 45 minutes to go from Yellowknife. Drive 15 minutes further and you will reach the end of highway 4 where the ice road starts in winter. That was nice to see... More

Trick with Cameron falls is to take your time. There is no rush and you will miss interesting things on your way if you go too fast. The path is well marked and is sometimes difficult on rock so make sure you have good shoes on when you go

The drive might seem to go on forever but its worth it. The falls aren't huge but the trail and surrounding area are beautiful. Also, in true northern style, there is a lot of freedom in where you can roam and explore. You'll be doing some easy climbs over boulders/rocks so I wouldn't do it on sandals ... although you...

Fun hike, not too long, in beautiful surroundings, with a gorgeous waterfall. About a 1 hour drive from town. You need a car.

One has to rent a car (read: NOT CHEAP) or join some sort of tour in order to get to the falls - it's about an hour's drive along a not-very-busy highway, but the driving is pleasant and their are lots of lakes to break up the view. If you run into car trouble, you might have to wait a... More

It will take you about half hour from parking place to the falls but is worth. Nice view and many animals and birds you will see. Preparing your camera and come.

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!
