Beautiful stop, easy to access to see these gorgeous falls. No entry fee and ports toilets. No picnic tables since all destroyed with a flood in 2013. We. Got to see deer on road on our way there so drive carefully.

As I recall, the falls were quite a bit more spectacular prior to the flood. I did enjoy a lovely ramble along the river bank with my doggie in tow. The windflowers are beautiful in the summertime and it is still worth the drive to...More

This is a beautiful spot. Just be aware that on a summer day it is a very popular destination. This means you will be sharing the beauty with many others!

Hiking, photography, just driving along and looking at the mountains. My dog loves swimming in the Elbow River. Always American Dippers in the rapids.

But do not let that put you off. It really is a beautiful setting. Easy walk, with well defined routes and great view up the valley. Only saw it after the flood of 2013, hence the title, but still worth a visit or even a...More

Hello, I am looking at bringing a group of seniors here for a short day trip. Can anyone please tell me about the accessibility of viewing the falls? There will be no wheel chairs but some of them may be in walkers. Secondly, is there a washroom to use? Thank you!

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... More
