I live about 20 minutes away and as a professional photographer I am here a LOT. BEAUTIFUL scenery and not crowded like some of the bigger parks. No cell reception so make sure you have enough gas, warm clothes etc
These are a short distance from Calgary and provide a relief from the busy city. The journey is picturesque and on arrival parking is easy. There are also lots of cows who will also be on the site. The scenery has changed since the 2013...More
The Falls are great and the viewpoints are easy to access on a 0.4 km trail. Due to the 2015 floods there are no longer any picnic facilities at the falls which is a pity. We also did the walk at Beaver Lodge which is...More

Hi, yes there are public, dry toilets on site. The parking lot is flat and the first part of the pathway is very accessible for wheel chairs and walkers. There is a viewing area close by to see the falls comfortably. The upper view points are not suitable for walkers. Also, there are picnic tables and it's just nice to sit at them, relax, listen to the water, watch the river and birds. Have fun on your excursion!
