We were staying in Baddeck for a couple of days and heard about this cute little Falls. There are a couple of different ways to get to the parking area. The parking area contained a picnic table and a camping area (maybe unofficial camping spot)....More

Lots of fun!!! Great hike and my kids loved this! It was one of their favourite parts of the trip. You will need to get a car wash afterwards!

We walked from the car park to the falls and back and it took us about 45 minutes. The walk is generally easy with some more difficult parts especially toward the end. Tree roots and stones are a hazard in some place. Well worth the...More

A medium difficulty hike with lots of roots and rocks to watch for. My daughter and 4 yr. old granddaughter thoroughly enjoyed it. When we reached the falls, it was refreshing, clean and clear.

Not really a hike but a fairly easy walk through the woods to the waterfall. You’ll hear and see the small stream beside the trail the entire way. Walk all the way up to the pool where the waterfall ends. Yes there are some rocks...More

THe trail gets worse as you approach the falls, many false areas of the trail as it appears somebody destroyed the signs blocking bad trails. Only worth the effort if you are determined and ver careful.
