Amazing if you hike both ends of the trail

Has two trails. Make sure to hike up both to get the amazing view. Hike is nice shady and cool. Good foliage. Getting to the park is easy

This waterfall is a quick hike from the trailhead with well marked and maintained trails. Recommend hiking to the left side of the trail once close to the waterfall to get better views.

“Only” a provincial park. But well worth a visit. The trail back is manageable and scenic, and the waterfall itself is very unique with several distinct tiers as it falls over 50 m. Just a few minutes from the center of Baddeck, this is a great way to spend a couple of hours getting your exercise and while visiting a... More

The hike was on a well groomed trail in which we met many friendly hikers. The kids had a blast taking there shoes off at the end and playing in the waterfall.

Its a bit tricky to find Uisage Ban Falls but our GPS took us straight there. The hike in was reasonably short for those less athletic folk but there are lots of large rocky areas and tangled roots making some of the walking tricky for older folks or those with mobility challenges. The falls are beautiful and lush. Gorgeous way... More

The falls were easily located and well worth the short hike into the forest. The hike is easily done with small children. When you reach the falls be sure to climb to the second upper level to get the full view.

Great trail for all ages! Easy terrain with 2 routes (one going along the river). Nice waterfall at the end with an even bigger one if you're up for the challenge

We did the Uisge Ban Falls hike on a bright and sunny day, but we never felt the sun as the hike is completely shaded by the thick foliage! The approach road for the hike is gravel, but not too bad. Any standard car should be able to handle it. There is a good sized parking lot near the trail-head.... More

Signage is a bit confusing but my wife and I really enjoyed the hike. The falls were beautiful and we were able to walk along the river which was great!
