Must see if you are in the area! Nice hike with waterfalls. Quiet and peaceful. Be careful on the dirt road on the way!

“Nice hike to see waterfalls and, if you're lucky, moose!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

This was a nice stop for an easy hike after visiting Baddeck. It's a little bit out of the way on a rural road. We took the longer loop to the right through a hardwood forest and saw some fresh moose tracks but didn't see any moose. When entering the trail we met another hiker who had seen a few moose. The trail was nice and soft with moss, which was good because I was wearing flip flops after getting a blister from my hiking boots. Closer to the falls there are a couple bridges. There are trees and ferns that are pretty much growing on top of rocks! The area was so lush and green I could have stayed all day. The falls are very nice and a good place to stop for some photos. Come here if you're in the Baddeck area!

“Beautiful Falls”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014

Relatively easy, short hike. The falls are beautiful! We also enjoyed how friendly the locals are. Everyone says Hello to you as they are passing by. We were told that some newlyweds actually hike out to the falls to get their photos taken - and it is easy to see why! We got a little lost following the GPS to get there, but it is all about the journey, not the destination, right?

“Beautiful Hike”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2014

This is a great place to stretch your legs, take a four legged friend for a walk, smell the spruce trees, have a pic nic lunch, and soak up the great energy of a beautiful waterfall. If you catch it on the right day you might be the only one on the trail. Other days be prepared for the tour bus crowd that have found their way to this little treasure. Cape Breton locals come as much as the first time Cape Breton explorers! See how many different fungi you can find. Trails can get a little muddy when wet. The waterfall rages after a good storm!

“Short Hike, Nice Falls”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2014

Relatively short and easy hike to the falls, had the trails to ourselves in mid-July, and it's a wonderful view at the end where you can jump along the rocks at the base of the falls. A recommended short hike for the area.
