Good way to spend some time, a few geocaches in the area, as well. The falls themselves are quite basic but attractive and a great spot to sit and just enjoy some time in solitude. There's a variety of trails, not only to the falls but to pools and dinosaur tracks. If you want to hike all the trails, expect... More

This is a beautiful, medium strenuous hike - beautiful waterfall and scenery! Refreshing to stick your feet in the cold water when you arrive.

Just moved to tumbler ridge for the next 4-5 months with work. First hike we took. Great walk in. Some steep areas but totally worth it. Rocks are amazing along with great view. Don't forget your camera and remember to be bear aware.

The folks at the visitor info centre were very helpful, and were able to provide a lot of pamphlets on the area and the track ways. The dino foot prints were very neat. About a 15 minute hike to the river bed. While in the area check out the dinosaur discovery centre as well.

The hike is well worth it. We did it with 4 kids ranging in age from 2-13. It is a steep clmb down but I did most of with a two year old sitting on my shoulders both up and down. The old cabin or church is a nice historic reminder of days gone past. Once down to the bed... More

The hike to the tracks is quite short in a good trail. There are several interpretive boards along the way. Once there the tracks are amazing as well as the scenery around. The hike back is a bit challenging but only for a short distance as you do go uphill.

We were wanting to view this attraction, so we attempted to hike from the parking lot to the flatbed dinosaur area. We got to the top of the ridge, and noticed that the trail was very steep. For those wanting to attempt this hike should make sure that you have great footwear, and possible hiking poles for going down the... More
