First off, this is Manitoba's highest waterfall, but remember that this is a prairie province. It does not compare to Kakabeka Falls which is about equidistant from Winnipeg. Due to lack of vantage points at Kwasitchewan, Pisew Falls with the established viewing points is actually...More

To restate the summative statement of a 2014 review: “A fantastic hike, beautiful terrain, not very difficult. All worth it!” It’s VERY doable as a day hike. 2 girls, outnumbered by 3 dogs, set upon a round trip to Kwasitchewan today (early Sept). We departed...More

A fantastic hike, beautiful terrain, not very difficult. All worth it! We hiked to these falls in early September (of 2014). The trek is pretty long to get here, nearly 16 km based on our GPS tracking (the maps indicates about 12 km one direction)....More
