Went here as part of a group hiking trip with Freewheeling Adventures and it was very beautiful. A nice hike with a beautiful view of the falls at the end. Be sure to cross the stream and get a close-up view of the Falls.

My wife and I just spent the weekend in Cape Breton and had a wonderful time . So monday morning before we left the island we snuck in one last hike . It was great . It was a short hike , no longer than one hour , but the outing was great and the falls were beautiful .You can do a longer hike in the same area but we didn't have time . We will next time so if you are short on time fit this one into your schedule you won't be disappointed .

Beautiful short hike around the loop or go directly to the falls. The signs on the trail are confusing, but someone had scratched into the signs where you are and how to get out, which were correct. Glad we went.

We go to the falls every time we make it to Baddeck. It is a bit of hike out to the falls on uneven terrain with some hills. BUT, if you are able to manage the hike it's well worth it. My kids are used to hiking and when my little one was 3 he was able to manage it.

Once you get to the falls there is a small pool area which the kids all love to get into. Bring suits and shoes that can get wet! Even if you don't think you are going to get in, something about the falls just makes you want to. Careful though the rocks can be a bit slippery. The rainfall makes a big difference in the falls but it's a spectacular trip even on low rainfall days.

There are facilities before the hike but if your little one needs to go when he gets to the falls he's going to be watering the trees.
