never made it to the falls

because the sign-posted maps were very unclear. However, the walk in the woods is lovely and even though we didn't see the falls, we were walking next to a stream the entire time.

This hike is not hard but beautiful and worth the drive. I went in the winter to snowshoe several times and really enjoyed it.

Tucked away, we totally enjoyed the hike to the falls - not too difficult to do so great for families with active children - a break from driving.

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.
