Its about a 1/2 drive on a secondary road from Baddeck. I think it is worth the trip if you are looking for something off the beaten path

It's a pleasant one mile hike along a decent path. The falls are pretty. It's a good activity for a hot summer day.

This was a beautiful hike to a waterfall. It was also fairly easy, nice since this was our first full day and we landed very late the night before. A beautiful forest hike.

This spot is just a few miles outside Baddeck. There is plenty of parking and a few bathrooms. It's an easy hike straight to the falls with plenty of photo stops along the way and at the end. I would not miss seeing this!

It is an easy walk and best done leisurely. I think that 1.5 hrs. is plenty of time, and allows for stops and taking time to enjoy the falls and other sites along the way.
