Awesome trail, not for the novice, a lot of up and down and rocks

The falls were magnificent, the rock passages were a little complex for this novice hiker. I wouldn't suggest small children unless you keep them in hand there is no guard rail... read more

The falls were magnificent, the rock passages were a little complex for this novice hiker. I wouldn't suggest small children unless you keep them in hand there is no guard rail at the falls.

About 45 minutes outside of Yellowknife. The road is pretty good although gravel in many areas. The trail to the falls is well marked and moderately challenging. The falls are lovely to look at. A nice way to spend a couple of hours.

About 50 km from Yellowknife. Nice trail for a hike to the falls. Cool places to have a picnic. Part of a portage between lakes.

We went with Backyard Tours. We did the Ramparts section. The walk was quite gentle, the scenery and views were excellent. We had a picnic in the park which was a beautiful experience.

Worth the drive out of town. A good way to see the landscape. Better to visit in the summer! Probably one of the best hiking trails in Yellowknife.

It was a little farther out of Yellowknife than we realized and had no bars on the cellphones to confirm we were on the right track - likely about 45 out of Yellowknife.....we were afraid of bears but saw none - sprayed ourselves with OFF Deepwoods and we were fine. It's a lovely place - wear running shoes or something... More

Wow this was truly an amazing climb. And what a gorgeous view from the top. Definitely worth the climb lol. You will not regret this trip. Watch out for bears yes there are bears roaming so just be careful when carrying food if you don't need to carry food with you it's safer. Have fun get comfortable hiking boots and... More

Getting to the actual falls is a good little workout. When there is lots of water, the falls are quite spectacular.

This trail is well-marked and easy to follow. It traverses typical Northern Territory. The falls are a great spot for a picnic. By September the days are still long, but the mosquitos have largely disappeared.

Located around 50 km from downtown Yellowknife, this is a fantastic place for outdoor enthusiasts. Even in a thick snow cover, we were able to navigate the trail comfortable using our hiking boots. The falls were frozen which were a good sight, but nothing outstanding. The trail however is beautiful and rewarding. Must do if you have time.
