This was a beautiful trail and waterfall a short drive outside of Baddeck. A must see! I am so glad that we found it! We did get a bit lost, as we were following a map on our cell phone, and we lost reception part way there. Definitely bring water and bug spray!

Enjoyable trail to the falls. There are a few different trails to take of varying lengths so something for everyone. It's about a 10 - 15 minute drive from Baddeck. The visitor's center has a good map to get you there.

Didn't see a single other person on the trail! Gorgeous! Rough road to get there though...and minimal signage.

I did this hike as a cruise ship shore excursion. Very pleasant walk not too difficult at all with very pretty vistas along the trail. The falls themselves are fairly impressive. Nice picnic area near the car park. Recommended.

It was an easy hike in and we were the only people there during our time at the falls. Total time spent on the trail was about an hour and a half. The forest is very dense at the start. (Tip: At the parking lot, where the trail begins, bear left at all intersections on the trail for the shortest... More

Be prepared for a hike. That's not a bad thing, but you don't know this till you get there. It is a rough path so it is meant for hikers, not just a short touristy adventure. Always nice to see falls though.

Beautiful Walk, Beautiful Falls, Easy walking, our four year old loved it. The leaves in the fall make this well worth the short walk. Have done this hike numerous times. Would highly recommend. A light walk and not challenging hike. Approximately 1/2 hr in and 1/2 hr out.

Short hike (1.2 hrs) outside Baddeck(nova scotia) . Beautiful fall colours. Hike was fairly easy and gradient was not difficult. Went with friends (including dogs)(non-hikers and everyone had good time. Waterfalls were worthwhile to view. Located in provincial park- only downer was toilets out of toilet paper (we made a donation). Great weather , excellent excursion.

The walk is not very long (c. 3k) but was my favorite in Nova Scotia, so picturesque - not distant views but of river tumbling over stones, amazing trees growing over rocks and of course the water fall.
