A short drive from Yellowknife to a basic non descript parking lot is the start of the walk to Cameron River Falls. The trail is in excellent condition and the view of the falls at the end of the walk is worth the effort.

As others have mentioned...the trail to see Cameron Falls was fairly easy and beautiful. Having said that going at the end of October there was already some snow and ice patches that you really need to be careful of. Definitely at this time of year...More

This trek has everything from high rocks to wooden bridges. Beautiful magistic walk through the woods and into the falls itself is so beautiful. A bridge that takes you to the other side for another look at the falls up close and personal.

Yoyo at NorthStar Adventure recommended it. Dan was our driver and Alice was the guide. The walk was not difficult, and the scenery was nice.

Clothing for Mid-November in Yellowknife (3 Replies)
We will be heading to Yellowknife in mid-November. Being from the South, we obviously have no clothing suitable for the -2F to +18F temperatures we expect to encounter. We hope to hike the Cameron River Falls trail and also to see the aurora, so I would appreciate some advice on the kinds of clothing we need to get. Recommended clothing brands would also be welcome.
