This was my third visit to the falls. Each time its beauty and magnificence amazes!

I visited in the last week of May and I was surprised to see a huge mound of ice on the rocks opposite the falls. It was already quite warm, and had been for several weeks.

It was a misty cool morning and utterly mystical to watch the sprays of mist wisping across the ice and into the trees. Combined with the sounds of the waters, the silence of the forest... it was nearly utopian.

This water fall is really magnificent! I would love to come back to this place!
Lots of insects and bugs by the way but with Pisew's beauty it's totally worth it.

See the cinematic video I created for this majestic water fall:

These falls are quite impressive! They aren't extremely high, but an enormous amount of water cascades over a drop of a just a few metres, and boy do they make a lot of noise. The short trail and boardwalk to the primary viewing area are well built and very safe, as long as people stay within bounds. There's a new feature from the trailhead to these falls, an excellent suspension bridge across the Grass River funded by the Rotary Club. It's a short walk to the bridge, and it takes people on less formal trails which overlook the falls from the other side. They were too muddy to explore when we were there, but other hikers said there aren't any protective railings, so people do need to use caution if they go that far. But the trail as far as the suspension bridge is well built and easy to use.

From the parking lot there are 3 choices: The long hike from Pisew Falls to Kwasichewan Falls, a short walk to the Suspension Bridge, or a short walk (but a number of stairs) to Pisew Falls. Pisew Falls are Manitoba’s 2nd largest and worth the trip. We stopped twice: while driving to and from Thompson on our way to Churchill. We also stopped at Little Limestone Lake (north of Grand Rapids) for a stretch. The water is green-blue - unique for Manitoba.

I am writing this review as well as contacting the government department to address a danger. The trail is spectacular, the Falls at the end equally so, however the distances are way off and the danger is not knowing the scale of difficulty of the trail when measured against its real distance.

The trail starts in a parking lot at Pisew Falls. Signage at the parking lot indicates it is 22 km. In fact it runs 6.9 km to a split. At the split hikers are offered two options. The so-called Grass River Side indicates a further 7.9 km (round trip 29.6 km) while the Phillips Lake side indicated 9.0 km (Round trip 31.8 km). Both are significantly longer than advertised at the trailhead. Grass is much harder hiking, adding another layer of effort.

It is a beautiful trail, and those capable of 22km hikes will probably not be too put out by actual distances. But the Department should fix this.

I wish we had given ourselves more time to explore this beautiful waterfall. We did the hike to Kwasitchewan Falls but, there are also hikes around Pisew Falls that get you much closer that should be checked out. Can't get much better views in Manitoba than this one! A must see and would be neat to come back and visit in the Winter. The walk way down to the viewing points of the falls was well maintained and sturdy. For me this was no issue but, keep in mind that it is all stairs and not accessible by wheelchair.

Located 70 km south of Thompson MB. Attempted the trail from Pisew Falls to Kwasichewan Falls, camping over night on the trail. The trail is rugged and minimally maintained. It winds through the back county through beautiful boreal forest many times right along the Grass River. Trail info says allot 12 hours for entire trail but expect longer and to camp overnight as the trail has lots of hills, fallen trees on the trail, muskeg (wet). We did not get to the falls only within an hour and a half as we had not taken enough water - would recommend the trail 1) earlier in the year (spring) or later (fall) - very hot and lots of biting insects in summer and 2) for experienced and fit hikers. Am going to try for the Falls again, by canoe or boat!

My wife and I, just having been married at the hotel in Thompson (another story haha), took a quick mid afternoon drive down to see the falls. Beautiful place. We only saw the falls and the suspension bridge, as we neither had the time or the gumption to do the hike. A fellow we met there stated that it was the most powerful he had seen it in thirty years. I live further north in the tundra where there are no trees, so it was nice to walk in the forest. I wish that we had more time.

This beautiful location offers choices to see the falls from wonderful vantage points accessible on walkways for spectacular photos. For the more adventurous cross over the falls on the suspension bridge and there are hiking trails about 25 kms that will take you to the larger falls, or fishing from the rocks beside the smaller falls. Picnic tables and fire pits are provided so feel free to bring some lunch. There are also outdoor washrooms. It is a peaceful location and wildlife is abundant.

This was a short break from driving but was much welcome with lovely views over the crashing falls, which made for some nice pictures! Unfortunately we didn't see any lynx, but it was a nice stop nonetheless.
